Thank you for your question. Morphs can be very difficult to identify because the pattern and coloration resulting from a particular mating may not resemble the natural pattern and coloration of a normal snake of that species.

I am surprised that the individual from whom you purchased this snake could not tell you the species. I believe it may be one of the king snake morphs, but I am not positive. You can try contacting the Morph Market at:

They feature a large number of morphs from various species of snakes. They may be able to provide you a definite answer on your snake's identity.

I hope this information helps, and thank you for contacting Ask an Expert.
