Abstract

Ophidiomycosis (snake fungal disease) is an emerging threat to snake health worldwide. We report a case of disseminated ophidiomycosis in a California kingsnake (Lampropeltis califor-niae) from Plymouth, Amador County, California, US, which is the first report of the disease in this species and in a free-ranging snake in California.
