No matter what lighting I look at them under I cannot see any red. I have not been able to even get a "red-eye" effect from a photograph which is something usually easy to do with red-eyed snakes (and I have tried many times). As for the body background.. there is a blue tinge to the skin under the scales.

Until something can be proven one way or the other, we have been calling him a paradox albino. He was found as an adult so really cannot say what he might have looked like as a hatchling... scars on him too so he's been roughed up a bit.

Not long after getting him we were lucky enough to rescue a small clutch of wild black rat eggs from a mulch pile (front end loader unearthed them and they tumbled everywhere and were brought to me). We figured that was the best route to go to try to work on proving the genetics without any contamination. Hatched the eggs, released the boy hatchlings and kept the girls to raise up. They came from an area about 20 miles away from where he was found so whatever the outcome is I think we can consider his future babies a pure locality morph.
