Kingsnakes are constrictors that are encouraged in some areas because they eat other snakes including rattlesnakes, coral snakes, and copperheads. They even eat other Kingsnakes. They are generally active during the day in winter months, but prefer to hunt at night when the weather turns warmer. When first encountered Kingsnakes often hiss and vibrate their tail, but soon calm down.
