Rename Kingsnake Categories for MBK Clarity [DONE]

MM should turn “western black king” snake into “Mexican Black King Snake”

The king snake section is a mess - MBK’s are posted everywhere because people (buyers and sellers) are uneducated about the differences between black (nigra), mex mex (mexicana) & western black (nigrita).

Please fix this. Thx

We’ve renamed the following Kingsnake subcategories on MorphMarket for greater clarity:

Black Kingsnakes (L. nigra) -> Eastern Black Kingsnakes
Mexican Kingsnakes (L.m. mexicana) -> San Luis Potosi Kingsnakes
Western Black Kingsnakes (Lg nigrita) -> Mexican Black Kingsnakes

Thanks for the feedback!

Thank you so much for this.

It’ll make sorting through the kings so much better and I think it will help breeders out too. I just can’t help it - I think poorly of sellers who misclassify their offerings. Makes me think they don’t even care to learn about the animals they keep and breed.
