Milk snake research is new to me, and as with many other reptiles species, recent taxonomy changes don’t make researching any easier. I welcome most taxonomy changes; the clean-up was needed. I still don’t accept the Mexican Sunbeam snake as being a true New World python, however. I agree to disagree.

What I’m seeing is a heavy overlap of species, much intergradation, and possibly new species not yet classified, such as Lake Chapala Milks. In all that mix, no wonder it’s difficult to identify a snake from any given region. Plus, many species are similar, such as a Nelson’s or a Sinaloan.

Thanks for the interest & replies, they were helpful and I enjoyed the interaction. There are few Herpers in my area, and they don’t tend to mingle much aside from annual Reptile Expositions. (One day, I really *should* move to a warmer climate.) I keep trying…
