This beautiful little snake is a baby female CALIFORNIA KING SNAKE. California king snakes come in a variety of pattern and colour forms but this particular individual, with its very distinctive wide black and white bands, originates from a particular area of San Diego named Scissors Crossing.
I think this little snake has an exceptionally beautiful head!
This California king snake is one of five king snake species in my collection, all of which originate from the southern part of the USA and/or Mexico. Each has a very distinctive colouration & pattern and they are all very different!
