That is a Desert King, Lampropeltis splendida.

Not necessarily. The pure black MBK is a locality trait. "Normal" MBK's look like Splendida's as hatchlings but grow to be all black. In fact, natural intergrades between the two localities are very common.

I did a quick search and almost all the MBK I can find are pure black or close to it regardless of age... this snake looks exactly like my desert king?

That's because in the pet trade the desired look of an MBK is solid black. In fact when I was breeding MBK back in the early 90's I would pick through peoples babies looking for the blackest of the black. There where many that where produced that looked like splendida. So this could in fact be a MBK.

In it's pure form with no mixing of splendida or californiae the Mex black is a pure black, though sometimes may have light whites specs on the tips of scales when they are young, these disappear as the snake matures. Mixed breeding of Cals or Desert kings often produce a muddy pattern of the two. The farther you head down south the less mixed breedings you have with nigrita. Living in Deming NM, it's a easy trip to hunt for Mex Black Kings that I have done for many, many years. Not saying that mixed Mex blacks with Desert or Cal kings are not awesome looking snakes, they can be. Just saying that the Mex Black in it's pure form is black. The pic posted earlier is a Desert King, not a Mex Black. The two pics below are #1 a cross of Cal king and nigrita. Pic #2 is a cross of splendida and nigrita. Note there are no patterns on the back or sides of the snake, but is black with light specks from the cross breeding.

Guys, Brian Barczyk of BHB is one of the most respected and well-known reptile breeders around. If he says this is an MBK, it’s a pretty safe bet it is.

Well if you post a snake for sale, better make sure you know what kind it is. Very sure bet it is a Desert King!

Pic #1 Baby Desert king. Pic #2 baby Mex black king. Not a real tuff one to tell them apart.

Yeah ok I’ll go ahead and take the word of some rando on the internet over that of one of the world’s foremost breeders. Maybe you should give him a call and teach him a few things.
