Milksnakes can grow to 120 cm (47 inches) in length with a life span of up to 15 years. They are generally mild-mannered and tolerate being handled but can be quick or strike out if spooked. Milk snakes require a basking spot of 90 Fahrenheit (32 Celsius) and very low humidity levels. Milksnakes, like most snakes, are carnivorous and will start out on defrosted pinkie mice and as they get bigger so will the prey item. A Large water bowl should also be provided with access to it at all times, this is to not only allow to snake to stay hydrated but allow the snake to get in it to help with shedding skin and to cool down.
