King snakes kill their prey by strangulation (constriction) and are opportunistic feeders, they will eat other snakes, including venomous ones. The common kingsnake is immune to the venom of other snakes and to eat rattlesnakes, but it is not necessarily immune to the venom of snakes from different localities.
These amazing images were taken by M. G. in her front yard.
