Finally wrapped up Lampropeltis for Florida.

Post by Josh Young »

This past Saturday morning I finally turned up an Apalachicola lowlands kingsnake that wasn't DOR.

I have absolutely terrible luck with getula in the state north of Lake Okeechobee and openly joke about being getula repellent, but kinda believe I may actually be.

Maybe my repellent is starting to wear off though.

I've now found all the Lampropeltis in the state of Florida.

Nice find. Those can be tough. Did you flip it or cruise it?

Pardon my ignorance, but are these generally considered to be tougher to find than L. extenuata and S. Fl. mole kings?

I cruised it.

These turn up with more frequency than both short-taileds and SoFla mole kings.
