How long do snakes live

tell me about snakes

Report as

Snakes live any where from 10 - 25 years on average. The average life span varies from species to species but as is true with dogs the larger ones tend to live longer.

A small corn snake with an average length of 36" might live 15 years while a large Python such as a Reticulated Python that would easily reach length of 25 foot could easily live for 25 years and possibly as long as 40 years.

Snakes live approximately 20 years, depending on the type, for example:

Boa Constrictor - 23

Bull Snake - 18

Rattlesnake - 22
