    Sorry I don't know. The first might be a Eastern X Florida intergrade. The second one I forgot because the name is hard to say. It starts with an "S" like Swanee something. I think its an indian name maybe named after a forest or some place. Brian Hubbs mentions it in his book and told me its probably the toughest Florida king morph to find in the wild. He has a picture in his book of the same morph that blows that one away.

    RossCA, I noticed in your original post you mentioned rubber boas, and I've always liked them and it reminded me how much I wanted one! Do you seen them often, and if so, where do you see them?

    Thats great! Hope you had fun.

    Are you talking about Rosy Boas? If so, I have mostly seen them on dirt roads in the evenings around summer in Riverside Co. CA. Any road that travels near or through rocky hills, is a good place to drive for boas. I've also found them under boards and rocks.

    Thanks a lot!

    Oh, i must have misread you post, I thought you said something about rubber boas! I think they're so cool, I'd love to go observe one in the wild (as I'll likely never be able to find a captive bred one for a pet). But just seeing one would make me happy :) You must love herping!

    David, thanks a lot, bud. I'm glad you liked it.

    I'd love to see one two. I've heard they are road cruised at temperatures in the 50's! That would be a really cool experience to find a snake in conditions most other snakes would never be found in.
