Look at this lovely Thayeri that hatched today. Now I know why I love Variable King Snakes so much!

That must be the buckskin phase. Never really seen one before. Really variable.

Chantel - Can I please request a pic of the whole clutch together, that way we will appreciate the variability even more.

I have heard that the variable kings are far less inclined to cannibilism than others of the species, Is this true?

This is an incredible snake. Has its colour changed much?

Sorry for the late reply guys ... this is the first time I've gone back onto that post.

This little guy hasn't changed much, except for perhaps more colour saturation. This pic was taken a while back, but if I recall, he's more yellow now. I will take some more pics soon.

Gorgeous leonis!
I've never seen a completely patternless head on a leonis.....
Many that I've hatched have had blushes of color....

What do the parents of this cool leonis look like?

Thanks everyone.

I will have to take pics of the parents of this one too. The male looks very similar to this hatchling keeper. He also has a patternless head. And if I remember correctly, the female also has a patternless head. I will have to double check though.
