Jalisco Milk Snake

Lampropeltis triangulum arcifera

 

This is one of my favorites.  Very clean markings, no black tipping, bright colors.  Has been mistaken by embarrassed law enforcement for the California Mountain Kingsnake.  They regularly double clutch in a season.  If anything, the babies brighten with age.  I expect these to become more popular once people see more of them and learn how to pronounce their name (Jalisco, pretend the J is an H).  A medium to small milk snake from Mexico.  Easy to raise.

NOTE: I sold my colony to a Utah scientist who is looking at them with an eye to determine if the Lake Chapala and the jalisco are different subspecies, so I will no longer have them for sale.
