Gentlemen
My pituophis experience is limited to owning one Annectens and one Jani, both for a couple of years.
I recently bought what I believed to be a Sayi (It was sold as a Bull)but having put a picture up on here, one guy said it could be a Sonoron Gopher.
This set my imagination going and I have studied hundreds of photo's and as many web sites as I can find, but there appears to be such a colour/pattern variation in both snakes that I now have no idea what I've got! (I will be keeping the little guy no matter what he is.)
He's not much more than a hatchling at the moment, but are there any obvious pointers that a "none expert" could use to determine between the two types of pit?



As pits do, its changed colour so much in two sheds that it already looks a lot different than when I purchased it.
Pits in general are not that popular in the UK at the moment so they come up very rarely and its almost impossible to compare actual animals.

Thanks.
