    Not sure if pics can adequately show how different this beastie is, but it was WC in South Louisiana and appears to be some sort of Corn Snake and King or Milksnake hybrid, very different and striking looking in person.

    Most hybrids are infertile, I can try but its doubtful anything will happen

    It could be infertile but if the species are of a close enough relation than it could be fertile.

    Looks like a Variable King Snake. Check with the kingsnake forum here to be sure. I have a young variable. Very mellow. They don't grow as long as many other king snake varieties. Great find!

    Will do, never considered it might just be an escaped pet or and one that some how managed to find its way here from its normal range, we all just assume hybrid due to its mix of characteristic

    I am not so sure! Doesn't look like any of the Thayeri variables that I have seen.
    And they are native to Mexico.
    I am going to guess at it being a hybrid that has escaped someone.

    Where's Jlassiter when we need him!
