In those natural occurring examples you do have something - you ave a naturally occurring anomaly. But thanks to the unscrupulous breeders here if you buy a king snake - any where - its likely been crossed out so many times as to be nothing recognizable at all. Just some worthless multi-hybrid exactly like white mice or feeder guppies.

And this was accomplished so a few greedy people could make a few bucks. Thats pretty sad. It wasn't that long ago that when you saw a king snake in a collection, o at a show for sale, you knew it was a California King snake, or an Eastern Chain King snake. These days the only thing you could say is that its sorta yellowish grey.

Simple minded human greed has ruined this entire, once fascinating species.
