(Video) Kingsnakes Mating
Reader Jen Alves shared this video that she took when she witnessed two kingsnakes mating near Salmon Creek a few of weeks ago.
According to livescience.com, “In general, [kingsnake] mating season lasts from March until August, and females often have more than one clutch of eggs per season. Males seek out females through chemical scent. They will fight each other for a female, wrestling other males until their heads are flat on the ground. Males often bite the female’s neck during mating, according to the Savannah River Ecology Laboratory.”
