Lampropeltis getula floridana
Animals of North America
The Florida Kingsnake is a terrestrial (ground dwelling), non-venomous snake that is only found in Florida. Although mostly diurnal, this snake will become nocturnal if the weather becomes too hot during the day in the summer months.
Florida kingsnakes mate between March and June, and the females will lay anywhere from 3 to 30 eggs. As with most reptiles, incubation temperature plays a role in determining the sex of the offspring; warmer temperatures favor males, while cooler temperatures favor females.
