Now in addition to what has been already said about the photo and ID of that particular snake, I will also say that I am aware of (and have several very detailed macro photos) of a truly one-of-a-kind black & white striped Eastern getula that does look strikingly similar to that snake, but am not at liberty to share it. It was found by a very well-known field herper buddy of mine that has found more types of snakes in the eastern region of the country than just about anyone around. But the odds of it being a mutant striped Eastern king (L.g.getula), and not simply someone's very common generic escapee striped Cal. king pet is probably around 1,000,000 to 1 or much greater. Without a very close examination it would have to be considered a San Diego striped morph California Kingsnake (L.g.californiae)

I'm sworn to secrecy regarding the Eastern king photos and any additional details regarding it,...but here is a nice very typical striped Cal. king for comparing to the one there that was photographed. They are also very commonly captive-bred as I stated earlier, but this specimen below was found in San Diego County by my good friend Ross Padilla a while back. He's captured countless different morphs in the Califonia area over the years.
