Re: Milk snake identification

Unfortunately I cant figure out how to post most pictures without severely editing it hence why it's so zoomed and slightly blurry. I'm also doing this on an older phone. I've done my research and as far as I can see it isnt a scarlet king snake because all of the ones i see always have red at the tip of its snout and I my guy has white (I could be wrong). I do have an account on arachnoboards (not trying to pull you guys away from here) in which I have a better picture (under not so spineless wonders). Thank you for your opinions so far and like i said before sorry if I'm doing anything wrong here.

Re: Milk snake identification

I'd guess Honduran, but there are so many tri colored lampropeltis it's difficult to say. It looks like a Honduran to me though. But, I'm not very experienced with them. Someone who is could probably tell you pretty easily.

Re: Milk snake identification

My first thought was sinaloan. Just a guess though.
