I actually remember when the albino Ruthveni came out. The original amel ruthveni was born in captivity. I forget who actually produced it but Steve Osbourne partnerned with the originator to offer the first ones to the public for the quite reasonable(IMHO) price of $1,000ea. It's true that they were the first amel tricolor to emerge. Many pure ones were produced as well as many hybrids, some of which are amazingly beautiful. The amel ruthveni gene was most frequently used on Graybands and Thayer's Kings but was also probably used on San Luis Potosi Kings, Greer's King's because those are all montane and/or cold tolerant species, closely related and breed well. I believe it was also used on Pueblan Milksnakes.

I believe the 2nd amel tricolor to enter the hobby was the Nelson's Milksnake at $2,000ea and the 3rd was the amel Honduran/Atlantic Central American Milk at $3,000ea.
