Colubrids

Here is an overview of the Colubrids I am currently working with... Kingsnakes Milksnakes Rhino Ratsnakes
COASTAL PLAINS MILKSNAKE (Lampropeltis Triangulum Temporalis) An underrated Milksnake species with an amazing red facial mask.
SILVER VARIABLE KINGSNAKE (Lampropeltis Leonis) A silver variation of the Variable Kingsnake. The Variable Kingsnake is also referred to Thayers, Thayeri, or Leonis Kingsnakes. They are a true box of chocolate snake, as you never truly know what you will hatch from each clutch of eggs.
ORANGE VARIABLE KINGSNAKE (Lampropeltis Leonis) An orange variation of the Variable Kingsnake. Variable Kingsnakes, are as the name suggests variable in colours and patterns as you can see from some of the examples of the snakes on this page.
YELLOW / GREEN VARIABLE KINGSNAKE (Lampropeltis Leonis) A yellow/green variation of the Variable Kingsnake.
ABBERANT COASTAL PLAINS MILKSNAKE (Lampropeltis Triangulum Temporalis) An Aberrant form of the typical Coastal Plains Milksnake. At this time, I am unsure if the Aberrant pattern is genetic.
HYPO COASTAL PLAINS MILKSNAKE (Lampropeltis Triangulum Temporalis) This is a recessive mutation which enhances the complete appearance of the snake. The red is brighter and the black turns a golden colour. These are sometimes referred to as T+ Albinos.
ARIZONA MOUNTAIN KINGSNAKES (Lampropeltis Pyromelana Pyromelana) A species of Kingsnake that I first got back in 1998. I was immediately hooked on them. And only dreamt of adding the morphs that started popping up in the USA.
ALBINO RUTHVENS KINGSNAKES (Lampropeltis Ruthveni) Also known as the Queretaro Kingsnake. This is the Albino form, which is a recessive gene. The Albino Ruthvens has been a key animal for hybrid fans by being compatible with other Kingsnakes and passing on the Albino gene. I have not crossed Ruthveni blood into any of our other Kingsnakes.
MILKSNAKE PHASE VARIABLE KINGSNAKES (Lampropeltis Leonis) A tricoloured variation of the variable Kingsnake. Also known as MSP phase.
JALISCO MILKSNAKE (Lampropeltis Triangulum Arcifera) As a kid in the 90’s I read about this species being very rare in collections and managed to source a pair in 2018 and had to add them to the collection. They are Lake Chapala Locale.
GREY BANDED KINGSNAKE (Lampropeltis Alterna) I keep the Alterna phase which has thinner orange bands compared to the Blairs phase, which has large solid orange bands.
ALBINO ARIZONA MOUNTAIN KINGSNAKE (Lampropeltis Pyromelana Pyromelana) The Albino gene is recessive and removes the black bands, replacing them with white bands. The animals are true Pyro Albino and have no Ruthveni blood!

RHINO RATSNAKES (Rhynchophis Boulengeri) A fantastic Asian Ratsnake which does extremely well in an arboreal setup. As hatchlings they start out a brown colouration and mature into an emerald green as adults. And of course, the name Rhino is given to them for the horn on their noses. Some taxonomists now refer to them as Gonyosoma Boulengeri.
APPLEGATE ARIZONA MOUNTAIN KINGSNAKES (Lampropeltis Pyromelana Pyromelana) In 2017 I decided to add the Applegate special phase which is a recessive mutation that reduces the black coloured banding. I would look this morph up on Google and would always be drawn to Bob Applegate’s website.
SENTZ HYPO ARIZONA MOUNTAIN KINGSNAKE (Lampropeltis Pyromelana Pyromelana) A beautiful line of recessive Hypo in the Pyro morphs. There are two lines of Hypo. Both are recessive, there is ‘BHB Hypo’ and ‘Sentz Hypo’. I decided to work with only one line and believe that the Sentz line is the prettier of the two morphs.
HYPO-ERYTHERISTIC ARIZONA MOUNTAIN KINGSNAKES (Lampropeltis Pyromelana Pyromelana) The Hypo-E or Hypo-Erytheristic morph is pretty rare in collections within the UK. The red pigment is washed out from its usual brilliant red in this morph.
GREY BANDED KINGSNAKE (Lampropeltis Alterna) I also keep some ‘Black Gap locality’ animals. This are easily noticeable by their speckled appearance. Which I think is pretty cool considering this is a tri-coloured species.
