Kingsnakes and milk snakes come in a kaleidoscopic array of colors and patterns. There are currently 8 recognized species of kingsnakes and milk snakes and a huge variety of subspecies whose taxonomical numbers vary according to the beliefs of the herpetologist. We will try to include both recognised subspecies and problematic subspecies in the scope of this work.

This page was launched in 1997 and is a colaborative effort designed to promote the captive breeding of snakes of the genus Lampropeltis (Shiny skin, in Latin), and dissemination of information pertinent to them at the scientific level as well. There are many authors and photographers who have contributed information to this page.
