In my experiences over the years in dealing with plant and animal identifications, I have found considerable variability often the norm rather than the exception. Color and pattern can be pretty "plastic" as specific identifiers for some species vs. other morphologic characteristics. There does seem to be very fine lines of difference between certain bull and gopher snake varieties IMO and look forward to comments by more experienced Pituophis folks to help clarify. I think locale references are critical to identifying or at least differentiating one type from another.
