I guess this is what Hubbs calls a stripe band stripe morph? What's really cool about it is the bars are kind of wide compared to other kings I've seen pictures of. That thing is totally radical, dude. :D

Hi Kent,
It's obviously your typical striped-banded-scrambled-striped morph commonly found all over SD County. I see 'em in my yard like every other day.

But seriously, it seems as though the last round of rain stirred up a few cool snakes at least. I must have been a day late getting out, because the spots I went to had already been flipped. All I found were a few gator lizards and bluebellies here by the coast.

Awesome king you found!

Jeff

I fairly sure it would be considered the striped banded striped SD morph, as defined by Hubbs.

Yours is one of the BEST examples of that morph I ve seen, out side of a fully banded in the middle portion (only seen in picture) king.

My first ever striper in SD county many moons ago, when I was a lad, was the S B S morph.

Btw These two pictures represent, what I believe to be, a "wild" Father and Son combo.. Something one can observe if their spots are undisturbed..
