I used the term "rip on you" to hopefully let other people know that I was NOT questioning your credibility. In the past a couple of people have gone there (for their own personal reasons, and not anyone on this forum), so I wanted to make that clear if possible. We love ya here, bro! Besides, only Shannon could get away with being that blunt, but then again he collects "stephensi woodini"....LOL. I am only trying to understand better how the 2 parent snakes may have produced those offspring. In general, there hasn't been any where near as much experience shared with Rosy genetic functions as there has been with Colubrids. Being that they are a much more primitive snake, I often wonder if some of the genetic mechanics may work a little differently in them. Snakes should be snakes, but who's to say. It's now recognized that there are 4-6 different incompatible amelanisms in Cal Kings, and who really knows about hypomelanism(s) yet. Discoveries and discussions like this will only be helpful in the long run. And I don't think anyone will have a "laugh at your expense" because that's not what it's about. The picture as it is, is certainly thought provoking and warrants talking about it. I have always appreciated your style of openness regarding snakes you have or produced. I also know you have kept and bred a lot of Rosys for a long time, but damn you, you have found, received, or produced some of the most insane alterna that your other snakes get a little fuzzy in the brain! Cheers, and thanks for letting us all have the chance to throw in our couple of cents worth of opinion. It IS all good.

Eimon
