I'm a big fan of the Stillwater hypos,and can honestly say I don't consider them to represent a valid "locality" anything.to my knowledge,no one has captured another genetic match to this mutation ANYWHERE in Oklahoma,(or,anywhere else for that matter?) they are called "Stillwater hypos" because that's where the bucket that held that founding gem was purchased,and that's the way they were first presented to the herpetocultural community.the insistence by some,that they be called something else when outcrossed holds no water with me personally.every single morph mutation has an origin,whether it's a specific geographic location,or "Roy's garage" in Anytown,USA. A genetic mutation is substantially different from a true "geographical variant"...it's not that any random bull snake from Stillwater,Ok. Is significantly noteworthy,or noticably different when compared to a random bull from 100 miles in any direction from that point,what makes these animals significant is the genetic mutation itself...of course this is just my two cents,and I offer it only for those that won't credit it at more than face value! )
