I dont hardly think snakes do a background check when they meet in the wild.....at least I don't think they do....

All kidding aside (and I hope you did not take that wrong) just tired and in a funny mood ha ha!

Anyhow most snakes in the wild have a relatively small territory so that would lead me to believe that inbreeding is a natural occurrence that cannot be avoided.

That being said....
It has been proven that problems may arise as you line breed for too long without introducing new blood. It does not matter whether it is a morph or not things genetically eventually line up to produce negative deformities....ofcourse we want the pretty deformities limited to color and or pattern...........

So I would say just pay attention to the outcomes of the litters and add new blood once in a while.
