Speckled Kingsnake pictures (Lampropeltis getulus holbrooki).

The speckled kingsnake pictured here is a long, slender constrictor and is also known as the "salt and pepper snake". The can survive in many different habitats, including salt marshes, where they are often accidentally caught by fishermen.

Speckled kingsnakes, as shown in these photos, like to eat rodents, but they'll also eat other snakes (including poisononous snakes), because they're immune to venom (like all kingsnakes). Farmers like them for that reason.

The speckled kingsnake can grow to be 7 feet long.
