baby snake survival

I don't know much about wild snakes aside from what I see on TV, and the little I learned growing up in California around wild kings....maybe someone can enlighten me

How the heck do baby snakes make it in the wild? Let's just say corns....out of say 20 eggs how many would survive? Less than half I'd think....but how do those little ones that do make it..make it? What does a snake that small find and eat in the wild? I know lizards are a fav but from all my almost new born snake babies I have had they seem totally unable, even in the wild, to find food on their own. I can't imagine how they do it. Anyone have good links or books or thoughts?
