What I can't figure out is why when mixed with a banana the colors become so pale? I would expect them to show more contrast with individuals expressing a bolder yellow coloring.

Are there photos of the adults that created these? I would be interested in seeing their colors before the mix. What we did here was worked on albino striped bananas first in one group while also working on chocolate spotteds in another and went that route. Mixing the two lines later on. We culled out all the aberrants over the years. We do still have some pop up in our clutches but I have not raised any to see if they held the yellow coloring.

We are only striving for striped and spotteds with no yellow blotching on their heads and sides. Just a deep pink snake with a bright yellow stripe and or spots. Might be shooting to high here but it has been fun thus far.

Have you worked with cultivating an albino striped banana? They keep an very good yellow to them unlike normal albinos that typically fade as they mature.

What other projects are you working with in these kings? These have always interested me. We never stopped working with californians here. They have grown on me over the years but I have not kept up with what others have been doing with them.
