I have actually posted this topic several times over the last year or so with less than ideal results, but for those who have not already tried to assist in the ID of this snake I will give a little back story..

a couple years ago I received a message from my step mother that there were a couple of reptiles needing a home and I am the go to guy in the family, I agreed to take them on and due to harsh weather it was weeks before I heard anything else, but then they were on the way, and upon answering the door I was met by a police officer who had driven over 200 miles to bring me a large iguana and this tricolor snake... I have no history on where it was bought, bred, or caught. no idea what it is other than a healthy snake that does not refuse meals... I have so far been able to narrow the ID's down to MSP variable king, Ruthven's king, Mexican Milk or a hybrid... the photos I used the last time had people telling me it was a pueblan so this time I got out the pueblan for a side by side photo (which neither was happy about) here are several photos of my mystery lampropeltis


and now with a pueblan milk for comparison
