Sonoran Mountain King Snake
Sonoran mountain kingsnakes are found in central Arizona south into Mexico; isolated populations are present in Utah and Nevada. It’s a protected species in Arizona.
Color-wise, this is not a shy snake: it sports red, black, and white, cream, or yellow bands. Black bands border red. That’s how you know that they’re non-venomous: “Red touch yellow, hurt a fellow; red touch black, friend of Jack.” Light bands and become narrow or disappear on sides. Top of head black; snout light colored. The black bands on this snake follow a neat pattern: towards the middle of their back, the black bands get wider, almost touching, and narrowing towards the belly, forming a sort of diamond pattern.

California Mountain King Snake
California Mountain King snakes are as the name implies are found mostly in the mountain areas of California, they can be identified by alternating red, black and white crossbands. These crossbands are arranged in triads of black – red – black, separated by white. This species is an obvious mimic of the coral snake (which has adjacent red and yellow bands) – but the kingsnake is non-venomous. This mimicry evolved when the kingsnake’s and coral snake’s ranges overlapped, which they no longer do. To find more information on the California Mountain King snake go here.
Common King Snake
The common kingsnake is a constrictor. It’s nonvenomous, and therefore harmless – to humans, that is. But incredibly, they’re not harmless to other (venomous) snakes. Immune to poisonous venom from other snakes, thanks to a special enzyme, it will eat rattlesnakes, copperheads, cottonmouth water moccasins and even coral snakes (this guy is our friend). Other prey includes lizards, small turtles, frogs, birds, and small mammals More information can be found on the common king snake and its control and removal here.
