Hi Aaron. The bare-bones truth of the matter is that out of these very few folks that have these snakes(including myself), they have some degree of L.t.polyzona influence from the original female that was imported here to the states from the Moscow Zoo. Also, Blachard's milksnakes definitely do naturally intergrade with L.t.polyzona just to the south of the Yucatan in northwest Tabasco, northern Guatemala and northern Belize. The original sire was without question a 100% genuinely PURE L.t.blanchardi patternless specimen that was collected on a small chicken ranch just outside of Quintana Roo, Mexico on the Yucatan peninsula years ago. The pure L.t.blanchardi sire unfortunately is now deceased. In any case though, this is the only known bloodline of "Yucatan" milks available in the entire hobby. They are definitely some awesome and very unique milksnakes. They are much smaller than the other tropical milks, have solid black very pointed snouts compared to any of the others too, and are like little Mexican jumping beans on steroids come feeding time!..LOL!

Here are my pair, and I hope to produce some this next coming season.


cheers, ~Doug

Her's the patternless sire of them:
