These are one of my favorite snake species. They are large, 6 feet or more, and generally aggressive. Some are picky eaters but most will come around to eat live mice or chicks. There are aren't many color "morphs", but the band count will change based upon locality. Some specimens of the dendrophila subspecies are known to occur with white bands. The three subspecies seen in captivity are melanota, dendrophila, and gemmicincta. Awesome snake! If you want to know more, e-mail me and I will send you a husbandry article about them which was written by myself.
