Eastern Kingsnake

Lampropeltis getula getula

Nice, black color with a medium width, creamy white, chain pattern.

One of the eastern getulas. Large, robust snakes ( 36-48 in) with dark black base color, and a white, creamy chain pattern, the largest subspecies of getula. This is the snake I picture when I think of a Kingsnake. After an Eastern, everything else is just lunch. As with other getulas, Easterns like to eat other snakes, including venomous ones, so they are best kept alone. My stock is from Virginia locality animals, from Ted Thompson . I also have some stock that originates from Jackson County, Florida.
