Hmm - that's strange and interesting, but a nice looking snake any way. I had other black rats, back in the years before I had a digital camera - and I remember that a couple retained their juvenile patterns, but they were much darker than yours. Is that snake supposed to be het for anything? What are its origins? Any idea what its parents and / or siblings look like? There are several black rat morphs around - you might try to talk to someone else who knows more about them - like Will Bird (Extrordinary Ectotherms)...
