The corn snake, a snake that is often kept as a pet, lays eggs that take between 58 and 62 days to hatch, but these baby snakes tend to remain in their shells for a few days after initially hatching. California king snake eggs that are kept in captivity at a constant temperature of approximately 82 degrees Fahrenheit should be expected to hatch in about 60 days.
