Leche

Species: Milksnake
Diet: Carnivore (rodents, birds, lizards, and other snakes)

Currently the tiniest snake in our team of animal teachers, Leche doesn’t let his size affect his ability to liven up a program! His vibrant colors and fast movements keep the energy up in the classroom and really seem to captive the audience’s attention.

Milksnakes have similar coloration and pattern to venomous coral snakes, making them easy to confuse. By closely mimicking the bright colors of coral snakes, the milksnake scares away potential predators that may think they are also venomous. Milksnakes are also a type of kingsnake. The “king” in their name refers to their ability to eat other snakes, even venomous ones!
