Sorry to hear that you lost the male. Unfortunately, these things happen.

The snake in the picture looks like a hatchling to me. It's definitely not a reverse okeetee, which would have pink eyes and fairly wide white outlines around the red blotches on the back. I'm not certain what it is. At first, I thought a normal, but the ground color is too light. Possibly it's a Miami phase.

A blizzard is amelanistic and charcoal. Both of those mutants are recessive to the normal versions of the two mutant genes. I would not cross a blizzard to the snake in the picture because some, and very likely all, of the babies would be normals, possibly with a Miami phase influence.

I'd cross a blizzard to either a blizzard or a charcoal that was het amelanistic.

blizzard X blizzard produces all blizzard babies.

blizzard x charcoal het amelanistic (AKA charcoal het blizzard) is expected to produce
1/2 blizzard
1/2 charcoal het amelanistic

Good luck.

Paul Hollander
