ABSTRACT
King Snake, a member of a genus of North American snakes that prey on rattlesnakes, copperheads, and water moccasins, to whose poison they are immune. King snakes also eat rats, mice, and other rodents, as well as frogs, toads, and lizards. They kill by constricting (squeezing) their prey.
