Bullsnakes prefer sandy soils in fields, brushlands and grasslands. They frequently are associated with prairie dog towns and burrowing animal systems where they eat ground squirrels, rabbits, prairie dogs and ground-nesting birds.
- Bullsnakes may hiss loudly or posture themselves in an S-shaped curve to deter potential threats.
- Even though they’re known for having a mean demeanor, bullsnakes are non-venomous.
- The bullsnake is also known as the gopher snake, the pilot snake and the pine snake.
