The Puelban Milk Snake lives in dry, arid areas. They are crepuscular, meaning they are active at dawn and dusk.
A non-venomous snake, they will feed on anything they are able to overpower such as mice, rats, small birds, lizards and frogs. They can grow to an average length of 90cm (3ft) and can live up to 15-20 years in captivity.
They have excellent temperaments, this combined with the colourful banding pattern means they are a popular pet snake.
