Wait for two years. I get 5 total black house snake and now after 2 years 3 are dark green, 1 is nice brown and only one have black (very dark grey) colour. They are all from KZN.

Olive House snake change the colour from baby to adul. One dark green baby have now green/yello colour.

Yes we know this, KZN Olives are darker than most regions in South Africa, these babies are Eastern Cape babies, very very dark for Eastern Cape babies, but as i've said i believe they will lighten up to dark green. We have owned and bred many many Olive house snakes over the years but these are by far the darkest babies we have. LET's see what happens to these beauties in time.

That is very nice, if you dont mind...I would like to post a picture of a juvenile I caught a while ago in Sunderland Ridge. I have caught numerous BHS's on the same premises for the last 4 years and the colour differences are astounding. From very light, spotted to this very dark one...sure is interesting.

Leonthemenace: Hi Leon, BHS are variable in their range it's totally a awesome snake to work with, i have hatched clutches where none of the siblings look even remotely similar to it's siblings, lighter, darker, more spotted, hypo animals all from normal Brown House Snakes.

That is a very nice specimen you have there please up date pics when he/she sheds

@ Sly, sorry mate. There wont be updated pictures as i always let them go about 1 km from our factory. I have enough exotics to keep me happy. My wife however is trying to convince me to to keep them again...lol. If i do decide i will purchase CB babies from someone though.

. By hypo do you mean genetic hypomelanistic animals or hypo looking? I feel there is so much confusion with house snake morphs or maybe its just me.

Poobsta: Hypo in looks, some would first have to be proven, there are however Hypo Housies in the market place... there is as far as i know in terms of Morphs: a Amel (Albino) first produced by Richard Boyton/Byron Zimmerman, Desert Ghost (Anerythristic) first produced by Richard Boyton/ Byron Zimmerman, ilumo House snake (Green/ Amel) first produced by Deon Nell, and Butter House first produced by Deon Nell, these are proven morphs.

I stilll disputable hi-bino's and snow house snakes to me alot of these just look like varrying shades and patterns of T+ positive albino's and T- albino's, i'm still to see a proper Snow House Snake and still to see a proper Piedball House Snake.

There are how ever lots of varrying colours of brown in brown house snakes and alot of unfinished work in this arena, there is also alot of animals that need to be classified and reclassified with DNA testing i'm sure alot of these mysteries will be uncovered. Let's hope the guys in the field will dedicate some time into housies.

Thanks for clearing that up for me sly. I agree one hundred percent, i personally think there is still so much to be done with house snakes and their genetics. I cannot wait to see what will be produced in years to come. We need a few more people such as yourself who are putting in the effort these snakes deserve.

Wow that is really black.
