Theo, Fooble, is it normal for the belly to be orange?

I would say Hypo Motley because my hypo motleys from Rishaad look exactly the same as her!. Except that head?

@ Jason Lucey - what about the eye colour though? I have a motley from Rishaad that looks exactly the same but with red/orange eyes.. I don't know if that makes a difference.

And yeah that head shape is odd...

Che, the head shape may look odd due to the snake being very skinny? She is a lot more slender than my male normal corn. My normal corn looks a little obese compared to the female.

She is a bit on the skinny side but if you keep her warm and feed her twice a week she should be fine in no time.
Corn snakes vary considerably from snake to snake so apart from a "super model wanabe" she is a Motley Corn snake.
The orange eyes would mean that they lack black pigmentation so they would be albino Motleys and they tend to be much lighter in colour.

Sorry but I was replying to Che's question about the eyes.

Thank you for clearing that up theo.

@ Rodwraylva, she's beautiful never the less and I'm sure you'll do a good job getting her up to size

Yeah she is very very underweight. She needs to be checked that she is not regurging and keep her away from your other snakes. Feed her small meals every 5 days and if she keeps them down then increase the size of the meals. I dont think you should even try to breed her this year. She is seriously in trouble and needs to recover before you think of breeding her or introducing her into your collection.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

Thank you BV, the cage she came with is very humid and the whole window is dripping with water, she is with my other corn until the humidity is down, or will the humidity not do anything bad to her?

Hypos are almost the same colour as orange amels except they have dark eyes.
