The nelson’s milk snake is one of the 24 different subspecies of milk snakes. It varies through its different colors and patterns. The snake is normally solitary and nocturnal. However, they are more common during the day when the weather is cooler and the ground is wet.  Nelson milk snakes have the ability to consume venomous species including other snakes.
