General Appearance [ edit ]

It has a small oval shaped head which is roughly the same size as the neck, black eyes, and a long smooth slender body. They have beautiful glossy black scales which reflect a blueish shimmer. Some neonates have some lateral white spots that usually disappear as the snake grows larger. The Mexican black kingsnake will usually grow between 3ft - 4ft long, but given the correct care some have been known to reach lengths of around 5ft!
