Gray Banded Kingsnake (Lampropeltis alterna)

Gray Banded Kingsnakes have long been coveted by collectors, and many consider them the 'Cadillac' of kings. Highly variable in patterning, no two are ever alike - although there are similarities amongst snakes descended from the same locations. As a result, most keepers prefer specimens with known lineages tracing back to particular locations. Click here to learn more/see adults.

Nuevo Leon Kingsnake (Lampropeltis mexicana thayeri)

aka Variable or Thayer's Kingsnake. Found in Tamaulipas, Mexico, this is another lovely small member of the "mexicana" or "gray-band" complex. Most adults average only 24-30 inches in length, although specimens may achieve 36 inches. Extremely variable, and stunningly attractive. Most "leonis" phase have thin orangish or reddish bands on a ground color of tannish gray. Extremely variable, "milksnake" phase specimens have very wide reddish bands in triads. Exceptional specimens may have the colors enhanced to yellow, peach, pale orange, or even very intense bright orange, and no two are ever identical, even among siblings.

What do all these numbers and stuff mean?

The description of each specimen is followed by the sex of the specimen, it's date of birth, a stock number identifying the specimen, and the selling price. Photos are of the exact specimen listed, most are taken inside a standard 8oz deli cup for size comparison, and are updated as time permits.

Understanding our stock numbers may prove helpful in identifying unrelated specimens:

  • F021-01M indicates a 2006 hatching (we started this code in 2001 with 'A', 2002 is 'B' and so on).
  • F021-01M indicates the clutch number for that year, and thus all specimens listed as F021- are from the same clutch.
  • F021-01M indicates this is the first male from that clutch. F021-03F would the third female from that clutch.

CB - Captive Bred, usually followed by year of birth. Hatched or born from parents kept in captivity.

CH - Captive Hatched, usually followed by year of birth. Hatched or born from a gravid wild-caught female.

WC - Wild-Caught. While all of our stock is produced here, some of it is produced from wild-caught adults that we maintain. We will occasionally sell some of the breeder animals as surplus.

LTC - Long Term Captive, usually followed by year of capture. Applies only to WC animals, indicates they have been maintained for a long period in captivity and are very well established.

50%, 66%, 100% - Percentage of likelihood the specimen is heterozygous for the listed trait.
