    It's a california king. They come in desert phase, coastal phase….banded and stripped. It's not a desert king(splendida), they don't live anywhere near phx.

    They are southern az like Tucson, tombstone.

    A Kingsnake in the wild is a beautiful thing. I'm still waiting to see a wild Gila Monster, that would be awesome.
