Coronella getula seems to be one of the names formerly used to refer to Lampropeltis getula. Other synonyms include Ophibolus getulus, Getulus coluber, Coronella getulus, eastern kingsnake, etc. It is a harmless snake in the family Colubridae, and lives in the United States and Mexico.
Its alleged size varies widely among sources, although it appears that this animal frequently reaches or exceeds a length of 1.20 m (47 in). Its color ranges from slate blue to black with whitish chain-like rings.
