These slithery reptiles love to eat meat, including rodents, birds, rabbits, frogs, insects, worms, eggs, slugs and — if you’re a King Cobra — other snakes. Some species, such as the Eastern Indigo Snake, aren’t picky eaters. They’ll inhale anything — we’re talkin’ venomous snakes, turtle eggs, fish and invertebrates. Other snake species are conscious about their diet and only feast on eggs.
If you’re feeding a pet snake, they’ll happily eat frozen and thawed mice, rats, gerbils and hamsters.
