           Known for its variability and its endless variety of exquisite color and patten morphs. This subspecies of the mexicana group is only found on the eastern slopes of the Mexican Plateau in the Maquihauna area of Tampaulipas, Mexico. Variable King Snakes are docile medium-sized snakes that will usually breed in its second year, and produce two clutches of eggs a year. Adult sizes are around 2.5 - 3.5 feet in length. Because of its genetic variability, Variable King Snakes are able to produce leonis and milk snake phase offspring with yellow, orange, or red saddles/bands on a buckskin, white/cream, gray, yellow, peach, tan, or orange backgrounds with various variations of blotched and banded patterns. They also have a form melanism to boot. Careful and selective breeding have greatly improved and even added to the possible extreme color and pattern variability that this animal possess. I've been selectively breeding and currently working on for more than a decade some extreme and bright colored animals with unique aberrant patterns.

          The largest, most desirable and sought after of the montane kingsnakes. It's popularity is due to its variablity and exotic appearance. The color and pattern variations that knoblochiexhibit includes, clean bright orange to red color patterns of 50 - 80 triads. These triads may have reduced black to distict black borders. The red/orange bands are usually complete dorsaly and the white bands join on the sides forming a zig-zag side pattern. This side pattern may have high white lateral interspaces with red and black blotching which gives it a very ornate appearance, or it may have low white lateral white stripes. Red markings may also be present on top of the head with some individuals having a full red cap. These placid and hardy mountain kinsnakes occur in the Mojarachic region of Northern Mexico. Adults are around 42 - 52 inches in length and can reach sexual maturity in 18 months. Knoblochi are more predictable in its habits than most other sub-species of pyromelana. Hatchlings are more likely to accept mice as their first meal than their more northern relatives. I've been carefully and selectively breeding for more than a decade animals with high band-counts, high and busy side patterns, animals that have extremely red head patterns, as well as 2 lines of hypomelanistics recently produced.
