Snakes eat a variety of foods, depending on the
species of snake, but all are carnivores,
meaning they eat other animals. Mostly they
will eat whatever they can capture and swallow.
Here are what some snakes eat that live around
Santa Barbara: ringneck snakes will eat bugs and
salamanders; garter snakes eat bugs, lizards, and
frogs; rattlesnakes and gopher snakes eat mostly
rodents; and king snakes eat lizards, rodents, and
other snakes, including rattlesnakes.
