hello everyone from Italy :)

I just got interested in this genus, called bull/pine snake in american, if I'm right.

I love Pituophis deppei jani, its high contrast in the pattern, but, wich species of that genus has similar colors or pattern ? Which are your favorite?

All I really know are Gopher snakes... but among them, I'd have to say Great Basins have the most contrast.

The most contrasty would be the black and white northern pines and P. lineaticollis. Both of these snakes can be black and white.
