So I get this call this afternoon from a friend of mine that knows I am into snakes.He tells me that he thinks he found something special for me.I said what the heck are you talking about and he tells me that on his way home on some back road (12 miles north west of Bishop on south round valley road)he sees a couple ravens in the road jumping around.
He stopps and there is a "white" snake in the road coiled up.He knew it wasn't normal so he took a shovel and slid it under the snake and put it in the back of his truck.All he had was a sawsall case so he put the snake in there.He called me as soon as he was home and drove to his house (about 30 miles away) to see what he had for me.
Sure enough its a amel cal king.I can't say for sure if its not a escaped pet at some time or a released animal but I do know this.
1> it was in a pretty remote place about 3.5 miles from any house.
2> it has many scares and has a very large head so it looks like a typical king from around here except its amel and skinny.
3> I would chalk up the skinny part to being its lucky just to have made it this long as its a adult about three feet long (female b.t.w.)
Anyway,I will put a bunch of wieght on her and next year will breed her to a "hobby" line of amel king to see if its the same gene.

p.s. she was very very thirsty and when offered a fresh killed mouse she refused.I offered her a live mouse and she was all over it.
