I have a pair of sibling Blacktails, the male is plain tan with a darker but not jet black tail, however his sister is almost unicolored with very little definition between body & tail color. She also has speckled body markings & looks very muck like the mottled Unicolors we see online.

Perhaps they are the same species with extreme color variation over a wide geographic range or could they be intergrades of two closely related species. Hopefully we will find out some day.

They are very impressive animals, Dry`s are my favorite snakes.

Nice pics.
Andy.
