Common Kingsnake

I forgot to post a couple photos of this Common Kingsnake (Lampropeltis getula) that I found on my neighbor's sidewalk a couple weeks ago. It was one of the most striking snakes I've ever seen! When I approached, it vibrated its tail and coiled up, trying to hide its face. I moved it off the concrete and put it in a garden nearby so it wouldn't get stepped on.

Nice snake. I've got one a little bigger than that from the Phoenix area, but it's not nearly as yellow as those CA getulas. You need to find one of the striper kings.
