You still have a nice snake. I've never met a common king I didn't like. lol. Mex. Blacks can start out with a ton of yellow as hatchlings, but lose about 99.9% or more by the time they hit 2 years. Some will also have a red anal plate instead of yellow. How about a 6' black milksnake?
:Heh, and if it makes you feel better, I'm still sure he's a black king, both because there would have been be no reason to rename him if he was a desert king cause they are legal in Georgia, and he has yellow everywhere (yellow and white). And I've never noticed it be brilliant.
:I mean he looks almost exactly like the picture of the black king on kingsnake.com's info on the black king and nothing like the picture of the desert king (just went to take a look). I mean he's got that little random speckle of yellow along the bottom like the king, he's not near as yellow as the desert king (or as brilliant).
:Even if he was a desert, I'd be very curiuos as to why the store had renamed him cause there'd be no reason to.
:Ah well, whatever he is, he has a lot more yellow than I wanted even if he is a Mexican Black (I think some one onec told me they can have that much yellow, but you and everything else I've read gave me the impression that even if they have some color it's just a spot or two, not several).
