no problem kenny. most of us here typically strive to share knowledge about the snakes we love.

i produce good examples of both phenotypes each season, but i would never claim anything i produce (other than from know locale stock) to be pure sinaloae or nelsoni. more than anything, i'm interested in producing good representations of beloved snakes i had in the 90's - ones who are hearty feeders and make excellent captives. it's a labor of love, for sure, and one day i may even get around to posting some pics of my holdbacks from the last three seasons.


here's an excellent forum post by doug mong about the differences between the two subspecies and why they were intentionally mixed in the first place:

forums.kingsnake.com/view.php?id=1923940,1924292


and this is vinny lynch's old page. it's been a while since it's been updated but it contains a lot of valuable information in one place:

pantheon.yale.edu/~vjl4/NSR/Sinaloans/Sinaloans.html
-----
i work with tri-colored west mexican lampropeltis. some morph, some hobby, and some locale.

everyone is entitled to their options, but no one's opinion will ever change how i feel about the snakes i keep and breed.
