Thanks! Yes, they still have eye caps, all have belly scales (but there seems to alweays be a slipt down the center of them), and varying degrees of random scales.

I have never seen or heard of one without eye cap scales.

I'm not sure why some have partial scales and others have almost any. I had thought maybe the partially scaled ones were produced from het X het breedings and the all scaleless ones from scaleless x scaleless breeding BUT this didn't play out. I have bred Scaleless x Scaleless for the past two years- most babies come out looking pretty scaled but with age & growth they look better...

Hope that helps.

Graham
