Lampropeltis getulus floridana

Please Note: The weights and lengths of our animals may vary slightly
Florida king snakes (Lampropeltis getula floridana) are one of North America’s largest species of king snake, reaching between 4 to 6 feet long. They have stocky build and are a very hardy animal with a voracious appetite. Their normal coloration is variable with their background coloration ranging from cream to red with brown or black blotchy bands. As they grow those bands lighten but still remain noticeable on the adult snake. This species is native to Florida and live in many different habitats, usually near water. At Reptiles by Mack we regularly produce the normal, anerythristic/black, and albino morphs.
The Anerythristic or Black gene is recessive to the gene for normal coloration and removes red pigmentation. The animal with the recessive Anerythristic gene will have black blotchy bands and a light to slate grey background.
