Thanks for checking them out for me.

I kindve got the impression from him that maybe he was recently told they were not pure because he seemed a bit defensive when discussing them. (even though there was no need to be with me lol)

His comment about "I don't care what people say, I've seen ruthveni that look just like these." was what raised the flags for me. I will say that looking over the classifieds I have seen several that look VERY similar to these. This may just be testament to there being hybrids all over. Not to mention these have been pushing out offspring for several years too.

I'm working on a book for another genus of snake and during my research I ran across an account saying that ruthveni was the only known wild caught albino for a long time and people were crossing it with several others for many years in an attempt to spread the albino gene.

Oh well, I have them cooling now along with some thayeri I bought from shores enuff at the show in San Antonio and all my regular breeders.

Thanks for the help.
