    Alrighty. I've posted these pics many places and gotten many different points of view on them. I never really hear anything consistent, so tell me whatcha think of this. I bought her off of a local pet shop she can be from a local breeder, same one that bred my Brooks Kings. The store sold her to me as a Speckled King. She's really a Desert King, but look at what she went and did.

    This is when I got her. Had I known of the change she would have made, I would have took better documents of it. [​IMG]

    This is her now about a year later:


    As you can tell, you can still see the trademark black head and hint of pattern on the sides.

    I snapped some newer pics of the Desert King. Already more than half of her body has gone completely black with no freckles whatsoever. Only about the first few inches of her have some color to them, but if things keep going the way she has she will probably be all black by time she's adult.

    I'm not a snake guy. But I would assume it's not a true Splendida. Perhaps cross-bred with something else.

    Whatever you want to call it, I'd use the term "beautiful"!!
    I like the black better than the speckles, personally. :)

    Sorry, but I can't help you a bit. :/
    Whatever she is, she's most definitely a gorgeous snake.

    Good luck finding the i.d. :]]

    Looks like a Mexican Black King Snake with high speckles. I own an MBKS but he has about 6 speckles.
