THE BLACK RAT SNAKE: APPEARANCE, BIOLOGY, LIFE CYCLE, HABITAT, DIET, BEHAVIOR
The back rat snakes are kinds of snake that are known to be calm and less aggressive than the other types of snake species.
They are usually shy and don’t want to be seen, as they tend to stay in hidden places where no one will see them. However, if
they are provoked they don’t hesitate to strike and they will act differently than how they used to be. Below you can find a lot
of exciting features about this wonderful snake.
The black rat snakes are medium-sized with an average of 107cm – 183cm. they have a well-shaped head with a slender body that
is covered with scales. The black rat snakes are dark in color with white chin, and many a times people mistook them as normal
copperhead snakes because of their appearance.
Black rat snakes belong to the family of reptilian and like most snakes, the black rat snakes tend to multiply by laying
eggs, and this happens normally between March and May where they tend to wait for their female species to pass through their
territory and initiate the mating process. The eggs are laid from 12 up to 20 and it takes 60 to 70 days for the eggs to get hatched.
The black rat snakes have an extraordinary behavior that saw them appear as if they don’t really belong to the family of snakes.
Their coldness and shyness nature summarized their behavior, as they tend to do all they can to avoid danger. They tend to freeze
and remain motionless whenever they sense danger ahead, but one thing is assured, this type of snakes can strike on provocation and
will not hesitate to be aggressive when pushed to the limit.
Apart from the geographical location where they have the highest concentration, in the American region; black rat snakes tend to
live by the mountains, they love to climb trees; they live by hillside, flat farmland, and places of rocky surfaces.
In terms of diet, like every other snake, black rat snakes are carnivores’ animals. They feed on mice, rats, snakes,
moles, chipmunks, bird eggs, lizards, among others.
Although there is no actual accelerated measure on the average life expectancy of the black rat snakes, but several
studies suggest that their average life span ranges from 10 up to 16 years. However, in a situation where these snakes
are kept as captives, they can live as long as 30 years.
