I recently received a few Rufescens Sand Boas from a well respected Kenyan breeder here in California. He told me up front that although his stock were 100% Rufescens, that one of his breeding pairs threw about 25% of each litter with orange "spots". When I received them, sure enough, several have this mottled orange and brown pattern. I've linked to a photo showing two hatchlings with this mottled appearance and a normal looking rufescens from the same litter. This gentleman told me that he believes that both parents from this pair carry a recessive gene for this trait. I've never seen nor heard of this before. Any thoughts? Thanks.
