The fact that there are both scaleless Everglades and yellows does not strike me as odd. It's probably a case of "one man's Everglades is another man's yellow." The identities of rat snakes from that region is subjective. I saw the same thing with whitesided Everglades/yellow rats.

I didn't get any more details than I already posted, and my information was at least second-hand. I've seen doubt cast on the authenticity of the trait. From the snakes adopting the typical Texas rat defensive posture to the adult hets being blotchy.

The popularity of creamsicle has probably lead to a lot of corn snakes in the hobby being somewhat impure. I've known several guys that would cross their creamsicles into other stuff and sell the offspring off as corn snakes without mention of their emoryi background.
