    Not sure. I was under the impression that Kingsnakes were all 1 or 2 species, with dozens of subspecies. They all pretty much average out the same size.

    The Eastern and the Florida both have the potential get really large, depending on the snakes genetics.

    Not at all. You have some that will hit 5-6ft and some that will only be a couple of feet. For instance the Ruthvens Kingsnake will top out at 30 inches.

    I saw the most beautiful black and white banded kingsnake, how big would they get, I'm assuming it a California King.

    There was another one that was white with a black head very cool!

    The Cal Kings will average out at about 4ft. Though there have been some that hit 5-6ft.
