It is no mystery that finding the beautiful California kingsnake for sale has not been easy to do. Due to all of the captive born baby colubrids going overseas for the last few years, there has been a tremendous shortage of baby kingsnakes for sale back here at home. Some local breeders have taken it upon themselves to shore up availability by holding back babies and ramping up production. It’s due to this fact that there are any kingsnakes for sale at all available at this time.

California King Snake Morphs
Some of the most beautiful colubrids for sale happen to be California king snake morphs. A morph is a defined genetic variation of a species that is different than the wild type that is found in nature. These morphs can be color mutations such as the lavender albino or the caramel albino. They can also be pattern mutations such as banded, black and white banded striped or a mixture of the two called the aberrant pattern. When the colors and patterns are mixed together you can end up with a variety of beautiful designer pet snakes.
