PostSubject: Snake Identification Needed Please :)   5/2/2011, 5:55 pm

I bought this snake a few days ago, I couldn't resist it, I love it's colors and patterns.
The pet shop labeled this snake as a "Ruby Eyed King Snake" but upon doing some research, it seems close to different kinds of other snakes.

I don't know if these are just different names for the same snake or if they are all different subspecies.

This is the list I have about what this snake can possibly be based on google.
Ruby Eyed King Snake
Levander King Snake
California King Snake
Banana California King Snake
Albino Banded California King Snake
Ruby Eyed Lavender King Snake.

Most likely, the chances are that it's a california-kind snake. But I want to make sure. I want to know what my snake is for sure so I can find information for it quicker and take care of it the best of my abilities.

Here are a few pictures of the snake. Help very much appreciated.

i dont know much about colubrids but this other website i frequent are really helpful on all herps.
ball pythons. net
they have a section for colubrids and im sure they could help you if noone here confirms.
but it looks like one of the lavender kings or a bannana to me.

its a nice looking snake though,you should get some closer shots of his or her face that would help with determining and if not would help me get a closer look Smile
