San Bernardino Mountain Kingsnake

Lampropeltis zonata ‘parvirubra’
Zweifel 1952
San Bernardino Co., California. May 17, 2015.

It’s funny how many lifers have come from bathroom breaks. Tim Warfel found this beauty under a rock, on his way to see a man about a horse. The horse had to take a back seat for a while. Subspecies of Lampropeltis zonata have been dropped by most workers, but given that collectively they are geographically isolated, I consider them to be valid (my list, my rules).

My Flickr album for this species is here.

HerpMapper records for this species are here.
