Lampropeltis getula holbrooki (Speckled Kingsnake)

West Feliciana Parish, Louisiana - Spring 2014

 

According to recent papers, these kingsnakes just east of the Mississippi river are black kings, Lampropeltis nigra.

 

I just can't accept that as these kings retain a speckling exactly like other holbrooki found in the state, and this trend continues all the way into Alabama.
