Once again while taking photographs today I found myself saying "These are the coolest snakes I have", and once again I realized that every pair I've acquired was because in some way they were the coolest.

This is a line of Andeans that Scott and Garret are working with...they refer to them as Bi-color for reasons I can not fathom... I mean.. I see three colors no matter how many times I count! Perhaps Scott or Garret will be so kind as to post some pics of the parents and siblings to show why I refer to them as striped.

In any case here's one of my last pair of milks...



Not evident in the photo are the red ventral scales on this snake... there's a fleck of black here and there but the ventrals are red, no signs of banding at all... barely evident is the line of white "stitching" along the dorsal and ventral scales... my eyes are drawn to it every time I look at this pair because it does look as if they were sewn together, and of course the high cross over on the black bands. Those black bands are intense... along the lines of the iridescent black of the L.t. gaigeae.

My thanks to Garret for allowing me to obtain a pair of them... and Scott for importing them for me... you couldn't do better than working with these two gentleman when it comes to adding to your Milk Snake collection... thank you again gentleman.

Gerry
