Again, just another one of many recessively proven axanthics in the hobby with my friend (John Lassiter's) axanthic splendida here. This snake would also normally display yellow pigment (xanthin), but doesn't any at all. And again, it displays the odd bluish hue. With many axanthics, the bluish hue is more pronounced when young and can tend to change into more of a white as the snakes mature and their scales thicken.
