If these are the pair I'm thinking of, I passed up on buying them b/c I couldn't get a straight answer from either the seller or the breeder concerning their true genetics. That said they were great looking snakes, but I'm quirky in wanting to 'know' the history & genetics of the snakes I buy. Especially for the kind of $$$ they were talkin'...

A 'true ghost', or are they better called a 'genetic ghost'?, is a rosy that is both anery and hypo at the same time. To my knowledge only 1 person has true 'genetic ghost' rosyboas. Somebody else chime in if they know more on that story.
In rosies, the term ghost has also been used for the extreme form of hypomelanism seen in the San felipe hypo. I believe the term originated with Vision?
Recently, the use has been brought up again as witnessed in the add for ghosts in the classifieds.
Also, hypo rosies tend to start out with alot more orange, then fade away to almost no color at all but the white.
That's all I can remember right now...

And like James said, post some pics.

Damn, photo gallery seems to be down! Maybe this pic of my female hypo San felipe will load up later...
