One of the snakes often being chosen by beginners is a milk snake (Lampropeltis triangulum) because it is so easy to take care of. There is a whole bunch of sub-species the one commonly chosen because of beautiful red-black-white color is Sinaloan Milk Snake. What is more and very important they are no threat to human beings. But there are still some essential rules you have to follow in order to keep your pet in good health. Some of them are written below. If you plan to have more than just one snake the specimens must be kept singly. It is very important because all Lampropeltis species are cannibals there is a risk of a larger snake eating the smaller one. These reptiles are sedentary ones so they do not need so much space to feel comfortably in a terrarium. Even a 15-20 gallon should do for them.
It is an important factor if you do not want to have a huge aquarium in the living room. The temperature required for this species is between 75 and 85 degrees. Unlike some other types of snakes the milk snakes do not need a temperature drop at night so there is no risk you forget to turn down the heater for the night and as a result hurt the animal. The issue of feeding is not a problem. The ones living in the wild usually eat small rodents but also birds eggs reptiles amphibians and invertebrates. They also may eat other snakes like I mentioned before. In captivity the most common prey are mice. For young snakes - pinky ones for adults - adequate to their size once a week. Cue the common adage is your refrigerator running? only this time don t fall for the joke.
Over the years milk has been packaged in a wide variety of different types of milk bottles. While nearly all of them are collected to some extent there is one specific sub-niche that attracts the most collector interest and that sub-niche is 1 quart Pyro-Glaze milk bottles with diary town and state names on them. Pyro-Glaze (also called "Pyro" or "Painted) refers to the method by which colored graphics were applied to the bottles. Pyro-Glaze bottles are found with various graphics & colors mostly in red green blue orange and black. They were made in several sizes and shapes but our focus here will be on a very narrow sub-niche of these bottles. These bottles were used by thousands of dairies across the country making it nearly impossible to catalog all the varieties that exist.
