I'm not too caught up in whether anery, axanthic, or hypoxanthic is the proper term. We'll probably come up with something a little more catchy. Visually this snake is not what I would expect from a hypoxanthic yellow or Everglades rat snake. It may be that you could breed this snake into a straight yellow rat snake from North Florida and achieve a similar effect.

As I see it the yellow pigment on the chin/throat probably derives from a different mechanism than the color on the rest of the body. Visually it is often a different shade of yellow than the rest of the snake. We see this in anerythristic corn snakes, and especially ghosts. Corns in their normal form often have plenty of visible yellow, yet in anery corns it only shows up in the throat region. Often anery corns have a little pink in their blotches as well. I wouldn't be surprised if my snake was expressing the same gene as an anery type A corn.
