Yeah, you'd have to buy fully grown gopher snakes to be able to get anywhere, but they would survive if they were native. Like Denny, said, those instincts don't go away. When we feed them in captivity, they still know how to hunt for and kill their food. They just have to work a little harder for it in the wild lol.
