Outer Banks Kingsnake (Lampropeltis g. sticticeps)

Outer Banks kingsnakes are very unique. They represent a problematic form of getula that is thought to be a natural intergrade of the Eastern kingsnake and the Florida kingsnake when the Florida form had a very different range than it does today. Most authorities think that it became it's own isolated population since the glaciers receeded more than ten thousand years ago. It is only found in a small area off the coast of North Carolina in the chain of small islands, i.e. Okracoke, Cape Hatteras, etc.., and very edge of mainland Dare County.
This is the rarest form of getula(common kingsnakes). These snakes are a highly coveted subspecies of kingsnake, and command a high price in the hobby.
