Brooks Kingsnake

Lampropeltis getula floridana

 

A large adult found barreling across the road in the middle of the afternoon in south Florida. Though simply a variant of the Florida Kingsnake, Brooks kings are exceptional looking snakes and are highly coveted in the pet trade. I found this one booking it across a busy road at high noon with air temperatures in the low 90s.
