I have recently had a c/b adult male kingsnake that was sold to me as an Az mtn king (L.pyromelana pyromelana)die of what appears to be zonata disease. This snake had been healthy and feeding well for over 2 years and had received a clean bill of health from a good herp vet only 4 months prior to its demise. I have never kept any of the zonata species and was unfamiliar with the disease other than beleiving that it only affected the Calif. mtn kings.My snake died about 2 months ago and now I just happened to stumble upon a description of thhe disease and it matches perfectly with the symtoms that my snake exhibited. Could it be that this disease affects some other species besides zonata? Or did the breeder and myself misidentify what kind of king was sold to me? I did not have the corpse examined by my vet, and in fact disposed of it and the encloser as well as all the equipment used for that specimine. ( I get extremly paranoid about disease in my collection)Has anyone else ever heard of this disease effecting anything other than zonata's?
