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
