Actually, those belly pics look fairly standard for an Anaconda, even with the little specks.

What I was referring to seems to be an apparent disruption sometimes/often seen in het Amel Anacondas such as this one I hatched out last year:



I hatched out 3 Anacondas from that pairing (Anaconda male x Amel female) and all 3 of them have a fair amount of yellow coloration disruption but the one pictured shows the most.

Amongst those of us that have witnessed this and talked about it, the common thought is that the presence of the Amel gene is affecting the black belly part of the Anaconda gene, considering that there's a possibility that the black belly is actually a part of the Anaconda gene and not a separate trait that is just closely linked to the Anaconda gene of which it very well could be just that.

So my interest has been whether other recessive traits also cause this "disruption" or not. Apparently in your case with the Axanthic gene, it doesn't seem to be affecting the black belly otherwise we should be seeing white "disruptions". I also don't notice this with either of my Pink Anacondas nor their poss. double het Pink Snow Anaconda sisters, all have black bellies, well, the Pinks just have solid colored bellies. It would be really interesting if this were the case only with the Amel gene. I guess time will tell.
