Here's what i've been doing meanwhile- I went to the Desert Museum in Tuscon, but failed to see a Diamondback :lol:. On the bright side, I got "Mountain Kings" and "Easte...

Re: California Kingsnakes now established in the Canary Isla

I believe that these snakes may evolve on the island to become lizard specialists. It has happened before I mean look at notechis scutuatus on roxby, reevesby, and Chappell island. All have become lizard or bird specimens with no predators. Perhaps a dwarf population may occur?
