Variable Kingsnake is also known in the trade as simply, "thayeri" - a case of the taxonomic nomenclature, Lampropeltis mexicana thayeri
providing the common name. As is often the case, the taxonomy is
anything but settled. Neophyte collectors often find the entire mexicana
complex confusing with species appearing similar to one another. To make matters even more confusing,
Variable Kingsnakes can bear remarkable resemblance to several triangulm species. For our exploration of the species we will refer to these animals by their common name, Variable Kingsnake.
