>>I have read different information on different snake books and websites. Can we consider milksnakes, kingsnakes? Since they are also Lampropeltis. Or does the Lampropeltis Triangulum can't be considered kingsnakes?

>>Thank you.

As a matter of fact, the scalet kingsnake (Lampropeltis triangulum elapsoides) is considered by most biologists as a subspecies of the milksnake (Lampropeltis triangulum). Yes, you can call a milksnake a kingsnake.
