The common kingsnake is one snake that is black and white in color. This snake is found throughout the United States and in other countries.

Kingsnakes are not poisonous and they grow to an average of 4 feet long. The snake hunts small animals and when it locates its prey, it uses its strong body to wrap around it and suffocate it before consuming it. The snake breeds in early to late spring and gives birth to four to 20 eggs at one time. The incubation period is 7 to 12 weeks and the snakes reach full maturity around the age of 3 years.
