Hello Steve, its great to hear someone bringing up L.c.calligaster on here. Hopefully one of our compadres will post some pics from the western part of the range. In the mean time a few pics from Ky. This is an adult female from Hardin county.

A yearling found two miles away from the first snake.

This gravid female was found under a billboard that had fell down in a hay field in Edmonson county. We have noticed that adult females of this snake have a higher tendency of retaining the juvenile blotching than males.

Here is an example of an adult male from Jefferson county. This snake was 4' and a new quarter quad record. This snake represents the most eastern population of calligaster known.

I think the western calligaster are more attractive as in higher contrast as adults. Seems the largest specimens are found in the east though. Will and I documented a new record size for this species this year at 56.25" in Edmonson county Ky.
Phil
