are secretive, nocturnal, fossorial snakes and are infrequently seen by people. They are excellent climbers. Scarlet
can be found underneath the loose bark on rotting pines (which is a favorite place for them to hide during spring or during heavy rains), under the bark on dying or decaying pines and their stumps, and decaying wood where they hunt for their favorite prey, small snakes & lizards, especially skinks. Hatchling scarlet
show a strong pre-disposition for ground skinks, "Scincella lateralis", often to the exclusion of other prey items.
This species (not unlike other
) occupy rocky areas and places lush with vegetation in various regions of the Sonora Desert, Northwestern Sinaloa, Mexico, and small parts of Arizona. Recent evidence suggests that species found within Arizona, despite their dark markings, are actually a cross between the Mexican black kingsnake ("Lampropeltis getula nigrita"), the California kingsnake ("Lampropeltis getula californiae"), or the desert black kingsnake ("Lampropeltis getula splendida").

in their swimming pools, especially during the spring. Until recently - and for much of the 20th century - scarlet

Pound for pound in terms of constriction strength,
such as the California kingsnake are potentially the strongest of all constrictors, due to the fact that they can exert twice as much constriction force as other snakes such as ratsnakes and pythons relative to body size. This extreme power likely evolved due to the fact that
feed predominantly on other snakes and other reptile species, necessitated the evolution of stronger coils to kill prey that needed less oxygen flowing through its bloodstream.
