Eastern Milk Snake

Lampropeltis triangulum

Couleuvre tachetée



  • They are found in forests and fields, and around streams.

  • They do not fear humans but are very secretive.

  • They are rarely seen during the day, but can cross roads at night.

  • They are very colourful, with a ‘v’ pattern on the neck.

  • They eat small rodents. They are harmless, non-venomous snakes, but are often mistaken for a rattlesnake, as it can vibrate its tail, much like a rattlesnake.
