ECCM (Alan B) was nice enough to send me this photo on what a perfect baby eastern indigo's ventral side should look like. Before anyone buys an indigo/cribo, make sure the belly scales are clean. No split scales anterior to the vent and evenly split scales posterior (below) the vent. Scales should look smooth and should not have a "ruffled" appearance. While skeletal deformities may be due to high incubation temps, I think its well accepted that most Drymarchon breeders think scale deformities are due to inbreeding.
