Thanks for the information. I've been reading up more on corns and it seems you are correct, it's becoming increasingly more difficult to eye-ball a specific genetic morph (so to speak). Of course I knew that it has gotten deep, being as how I've been a reptile enthusiast since I was about 6 (I'm almost 30 now, wow where has the time gone!!!??)...

Anyway, I never realized how big the 'morph' game is outside of ball pythons. Since some of those genetic mutations can get you rich, I assumed that was the main purpose. But, with the corn snakes it seems like prices are all fairly low when dealing with the right person, and there is so much information out here on the interwebs that I'll never be able to collect it all. I would be interested in trying to produce some baby snakes some day, however I think I would stick to ball pythons. For now, I'm just content knowing that if not for me, another pretty little snake would be stuck in an unfit environment. The guy I got it from had no clue what he was doing... And the more I tried to help, the more annoyed he got with me. Obviously he didn't care much at all, because a couple of days later he showed up at my door complaining that it wouldn't eat and he didn't want it anymore. When I asked what he was trying to feed it, the answer I got was "mice." As in adult, live mice. I've had it for just over a week now and it successfully ate a thawed hopper, shed perfectly, and defecated in the water bowl! Sounds like a happy snake to me!
