Black Milksnakes

Lampropeltis micropholis
(syn. L. t. gaigeae)


Black milksnakes are native to the highlands of Central America and grow to 5-6′ on average. They are incredibly docile even from a young age and are one of the largest milksnake species. We currently keep three black milks, Skotos (2015 male), Nyx (2015 female), and Nova (2019 female).
