Honduran Milksnake History And Care Tips
Although the year was , I still vividly remember seeing my first Honduran milksnakes. I was a teenager working my first job in a reptile store in Colorado. During a visit to a local wholesaler, I was directed to a cage containing several specimens of Hondurans. Previously, the only milksnakes I had seen were the local Central Plains milks Lampropeltis triangulum gentilis , which were small snakes that rarely exceeded 2 feet in length.
Honduran Milk Snake Breeding Tips
Lampropeltis triangulum hondurensis , commonly known as the Honduran milk snake , is an egg laying species of nonvenomous colubrid snake. It is one of the more commonly bred milk snakes in captivity and is one of the larger milk snakes, reaching a length of 5 feet. Its specific name triangulum is Latin for "triangle" and refers to the three colors found on the scales of the species red, black, and yellow.
It has been a long time since we have done any articles on this beautiful species of Milk Snake, so we thought it was time to do an updated article on the large and attractive Honduran Milk Snake. Of all the milk snakes I personally feel that the Honduran Milk Snake is the most impressive, not only in size but also with regards to their bright colouring, especially when it comes to the amazing variety of mutations that exist within this species. The normal or wild type Honduran Milk Snake is a beautiful snake by itself. The background colour ranges from red to orange.
