To answer your question there is no way to tell other than to know which locality they came from. There is an intergrade zone that runs through Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas. Within populations there are many color variations that mimic either western or eastern. I have seen Yellow, Brown, Red, Pink, Cream and Black, Solid Cream, and Solid Black , Black and Pink, and Banded Specimens. I have seen cream colored Western that look like the Cream colored Eastern. With an intergrade zone the combinations are unlimited.
The only thing I noticed is that there is less of a chance that a western has large amounts of black. It is a good idea to purchase animals that have a known locality to be sure. To post multiple pictures you open two windows on your computer one for kingsnake.com and one for your photos. You can paste as many image codes into the text as you want to kinda like this.
