I had a very nice 2007 gold aberrant thayeri I had purchased from Chris Garcia. Unfortunately, in her second year, she stopped eating. I noticed a bump near her vent, and took her to the vet. X rays revealed that she had a tumor that went up her spine and I ended up losing her. I was really bummed since she came from a nice clutch with lots of variation. Here is a partial clutch pic. I purchased the gold aberrant female and the orange curled up male from that pic:



A few weeks ago, I noticed a group of 2.3 thayeri offered in the classifieds. I recognized one of the snakes in the group as a sibling of my deceased female. I contacted the seller and explained that I had a sibling of that female and asked if he would sell her separately. He was able to sell the others in the group, so agreed to do so. Ironically, she was the MSP in the clutch pic that was right next to my girl:



The seller was shocked that I was able to recognize her from 2007. I picked her up yesterday, and she is settling into her new home comfortably. I am very excited to have her genetics back in my group.
