I've heard a lot of breeders say "the ugliest babies make the prettiest adults" but i've never personally seen that to be accurate.

From what i've personally seen, Okeetee babies with the bright orange dots going down the back between the blotches on the front 1/4 of the snake usually turn out better than average.

If you are wanting a true Okeetee that is 100% locale specific with no mixing, you might not end up with "grade A Okeetee"... possibly, but not likely. Seems like most (but not all) people with real Okeetee have kept the animals looking normal rather than selectively breed for an enhanced look.

On the other hand, i've seen some Abbott X Extreme Okeetees that also have the Red Coat trait bred into them that are absolute nuts... they just glow and the black borders are so thick that the rear 11-12 blotches are just solid black.
