" I am curious to know what they may be worth"



Yeah, that's great!. Did you ever give any thought to this though?. It wasn't bad enough to produce the normal looking crosses that will go on to confuse people as to what they really are later on, and now when you sprinkle these het babies all around and are paired up, they will then produce white leucistic snakes that will be TOTALLY indistinguishable from the leucistic Texas and Black Rats already out there in the hobby mainstream.

Could you maybe take up another hobby that is harmless like model building, fishing, or coin collecting, etc..?

How about producing some genuinely authentic subspecies of some kind?, or is that too "boring" because it has already been done for countless millenia?. You could have made some nice genuine subspecific morphs too without a cross of any kind being tossed in.

BTW, there are some orange-ish yellow ratsnakes that look extremely similar to some Everglades Rats here and there in their natural range. I seriously doubt you had a Yellow x Everglades, it just looked a bit more orange and was merely a natural variant.
