    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.

    I think its the Eastern Kingsnake, I could be wrong though!

    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.
