One of our larger snake species in Florida, the Eastern kingsnake ranges upwards from three to four feet in length as adults. They are quite strong and robust. There’s been a bit of debate about how to classify this species in Florida. Some think of our regional populations throughout the Florida peninsula as the Florida kingsnake (Lampropeltis floridana), while others think of it as a subspecies (L. getula floridana). I’m starting to lean towards the L. floridana designation but am waiting for the debate to progress with more data before fulling switching over from L. getula to L. floridana.
