Arizona Mountain Kingsnake Description
  The Arizona Mountain Kingsnake is also known as the Sonoran Mountain Kingsnake or "Pyro". The Arizona Mountain Kingsnake usually live in mountains or
rock piles, and will rarely venture far from their homes. In the wild, they are active between April and November. They are most active after periods of rain. They are primarily diurnal, the Arizona Mountain Kingsnake usually ventures out between morning and evening depending on the weather. They are also primarily terrestrial, meaning they spend most of their time on the ground, but they have been observed climbing tress and hunting in low bushes. The areas in which the Arizona Mountain Kingsnake makes its home are often characterized by pinyon-juniper woodland and pine-fir woodland. They will often live near streams or other water sources and usually live near rock piles. The Arizona Mountain Kingsnake usually only emerge from the rock piles to feed, mate or to find a better hiding spot. They usually live in elevations between 4500 and 7500 feet. The Arizona Mountain Kingsnake can become quite docile and make excellent pets when properly handled. If a Arizona Mountain Kingsnake feels threatened, it will emit a musk scent and may bite.
