I hate to disagree with you, but having done this exact cross. The first generation, were all different, as was the second. Nove looked like either parent.

Both founders were somewhat normal, the male was a black and yellow slightly aberrant newporter type. The female was a milksnake phase. The most common color phase was a Greeri type pattern on a much bigger snake.

Your genetic prediction is for simple recessive, the problem is, color and pattern and other characters are not recessives.

What happens is based on your unique genepool, except the albino part. Also, The albino gene in the kingsnake is most likely different then the albino gene in the Thayeri/ruthenveni cross.

I founded the albino kings, a very long time ago, and would friends and a field partner, to the person who founded the albino Ruthies.(Bill G.) and friends to the person who founded the albino thayeri(Steve O.)

Lastly, I also pioneered the montane king hybrid area, and like Bluerosy stated. They sold like hotcakes, even to those to complain like little babies. They would whine and whine, then call me and buy some.

Heres the interesting part, some here, WHINE like its going to ruin the world. The problem is, these crosses have been around longer then those who are complaining. The world is already ruined. Much like you stated, pure is a concept that is not in the reality of snake keeping.

A hybrid IS, any crossing of genetic material, that is different to the original. Names such as Variable king, are simply made up names, such as what is done with morphs.

The reality is, "thayeri" are montane kings the occur in scattered populations thru out a series of mountain ranges that are isolated from eachother. The original captive breedings were from different populations, so in FACT, the captive thayeri, are indeed hybrids to start with. End part 1
