    Black and White Banded King Snakes and Yellow....

    Hey so I was recently reading and read that Black and white Banded King snakes who have a yellow color instead of white, are actually "pure bred" because the yellow is a ressive trait that they can have, just curious if any one else had heard this or knows more about it thanks!

    I've never heard that, but when I've seen pictures of wild Cali kings, they're usually brown and cream colored. It makes sense; one would hope that a native species in it's natural habitat would be "pure bread."

    Not true. The California Kings have a wide natural variance in color depending on the region that they are from.

    No problem. There are a lot of very odd things spouted as fact that do not bear close scrutiny!
