Here are some nice links to the AZ PARC/ Reptiles of Arizona site on some of our Shovel-nosed Snakes - Chionactis ssp. These guy are common within their range. I really like these guys, and if you notice, some also carry a tri-color banding and coloration close to that of corals (much like you can see with Mountain kings and other species like Long nosed snakes, etc.). I think they are a very pretty snake. Shows we have several species that carry this same "mimic" coloration and pattern other than just milks and kings.
