Description:
Harmless. Smooth scales; belly yellow and irregularly patterned with black; black head, body, and tail profusely speckled with small yellow, cream or white spots. Yellow speckling on back forms narrow bars in juveniles and occasionally in adults.
The Speckled Kingsnake is a medium- to large-bodied constrictor that grows of 90-122cm (35 to 48 inches). The scales are smooth and the anal plate single. The dorsal surface is dark brown to black and most scales along the sides have a small irregular shaped yellow to whitish centered spot. In most Kansas specimens (and all juveniles)  the yellow/white spots form thin broken bars across the back, and many scales on the back may not have any spots at all. The belly is yellow/white (rarely orange) with few to many dark brown to black rectangular blotches.
Adults normally grow 900-1,220 mm (36-48 inches) in TL; largest specimen from Kansas: male (KU 182290) from Ford County with TL of 1,264 mm (49¼ inches) collected by Jeffrey T. Burkhart, T. Lucier, and D. Tolliver on 28 October 1978; maximum length throughout range: 72 inches (Conant and Collins, 1998).

Distribution:
Probably occurs statewide, though spotty in the western quarter of the state, where it is largely confined to riparian corridors. It is especially numerous in rocky areas of the Smoky Hills, Flint Hills, and Osage Cuesta physiographic provinces, and at wetlands like Cheyenne Bottoms, Neosho Waterfowl Refuge, and Jamestown Wildlife Area.

Natural History:
Inhabits moist areas of open woodland, woodland edge or lowlands as well as open prairie, and cultivated borders; frequents rocky hillsides and small mammal burrows in open areas. Active from April to October, primarily during the day; nocturnal in summer. Eggs in clutches of 2-17 and generally hatch in fall. Constrictor. Diet includes rodents, small birds, eggs (bird and reptile), lizards and other snakes including venomous species.
Speckled Kingsnakes are known predators of other snakes, including venomous varieties. Their overall diet is varied, as they will eat small mammals, birds, lizards, frogs, as well as lizard, turtle, and bird eggs. They kill their prey by constriction
Females are oviparous, laying up to two dozen eggs in June or July, in a burrow or in/under a decaying log. The eggs hatch from late August into September.

Occurrence Activity:
White dates indicate there is at least a single recorded occurrence on that date. The darker blue a date is, the greater the relative number of observations for that date.
Observation Type: (of recorded types)
Remarks:
First reported in Kansas by Mozley (1877). The earliest existing specimen is from 1857 (USNM 316).
The systematics of the Speckled Kingsnake and its wide-spread closely related congeners (L. californiae, L. splendida, and L. getula [among other synonyms]) has received a lot of work since Blanchard (1921) (Blaney 1971, 1977; Pyron 2009) yet remains contentious.
