Default Carolina or Okeetee corn snake?

Adopting this 10 year old corn snake, curious as to what morph he is. Pretty sure he is either a Carolina or an Okeetee but struggle to tell the difference https://i.imgur.com/pUtxocU.jpg

That's a Carolina. Okeetees are a brighter orange, & the saddles are redder with thicker black edges. Btw, neither are morphs per se, ie not man made through breeding, but are known as 'locales'- natural colour varieties from different localities.

Carolina corn snake = normal corn snake (not a morph). That is a right nice looking one, too.

Check the belly. If it is white with dark checkers, then the snake is definitely a normal. If it is orange/red with dark checkers, that it may have an Okeetee somewhere in the ancestry. But I'd still call it a normal.

Have fun with him.
