Q: What is the oldest snake to live residentially? (NOT in a zoo)

March 30, 2011 | By Matzahatza | 1 answer | Expired: 1690 days ago

I've had my snake 30 years this summer. Every year I can't believe that he is still alive. He is so old, but still ticking. I know that a python lived 40 years in the San Diego Zoo, but I was wondering how long a snake has lived in captivity in a residential capacity. He is a California banded King Snake, in case you were wondering.

The oldest I have heard of living in a home with a person was 100 and it was an Albino python. Also I have heard that most king snakes can live to be at least 75 years old but if I were you I would either google it or look on a website specailizing in reptiles mabey even ask a vetrenairian.
