Chihuahua Mountain Kingsnake Description
  The Chihuahua Kingsnakes are also known as Tarahumara Kingsnakes. Because of their brilliant and cleanly defined coloring, they make lovely captives. These snakes originated from only one small area of the world, the Tarahumara Mountains. The Chihuahua Kingsnake is usually quickly tamed in captivity with regular handling and will often cling to their handlers, probably imitating the rock climbing actions it would in the wild. The Chihuahua Kingsnakes come from mountainous regions where warm seasons may be relatively short, and many stop eating before the summer is over. The Chihuahua Kingsnake has a broad head with a well-defined neck and slender bodies.
