Hi Alex,........

Well, I didn't breed them this season, but I certainly will next year. I'm glad you find these snakes very interesting as well.

Here is one of the wild-caught locality females Jim bred the original morph with back in 2008. (photo by Jim Godfrey)



a very light phase individual that looks like an amel that also has pink eyes. This is a very old pic shortly after I first acquired them.



Here is a fairly recent shot of him.



Here is a pic of the darker morph female shortly after I got her as well. Note the darker tan/brown coloration and what appear to be solid BLACK pupils. They might even be black here and they gradually underwent an ontogenetic change to the deep ruby/red.







later on I was surprised to find out that the eye coloration became a bit lighter and discovered that they were actually a deep ruby/red coloration.



I wish the snakes head was turned a bit more to open the iris more. It would clearly depict that her eyes are not black at all, but very deep red. I think these snakes are probably tyrosinase-positive albinos rather than hypos. They certainly aren't amelanistic (t-negative).







Here is a pic taken a while back of one of the normal phenotype hets. I really like the coloration of this one a lot!!..




cheers, ~Doug
