What milksnake is called the "Apricot milksnake"?

I will be getting this milksnake off of Craigslist on Friday and would like to know what type of milksnake it is. I'm assuming a pueblan, but I just want to check. Here's a pic :

Pueblan, Lampropeltis triangulum campbelli.

They are an excellent choice for a pet milksnake,beautiful,easy to handle and eat well.

Thanks! Is the "apricot" a morph or just another name for them?

The term "apricot" indicates the coloration of the lighter bands. You can also have white bands, so the "apricot" label just differentiates the different color of those bands.

So is it genetic?

If you breed 2 apricot pueblans together you should get all apricot offspring but don't be surprised if you get a white banded one in the mix.

Apricot is a color phase of the pueblan.a normal can have yellow or white bands.
the wide banding on yours is desirable and denotes a high quality specimen.
