>>LOL! You first.

I'll go first.

The Outerbanks kingsnake is a valid subspecies, as Lazell and Musick demonstrated in the following paper:

Lazell, J., and J. Musick. 1981. Status of the Outer Banks kingsnake, Lampropeltis getulus sticticeps. Herpetological Review 12(1): 7.

There has been a recent attempt to invalidate this subspecies, but it is unconvincing. Of course anyone is welcome to read both sides of the argument and decide for himself/herself.

Palmer, William M. and Alvin L. Braswell. 1995. Reptiles of North Carolina. University of North Carolina Press.
