Eastern Chain King

Eastern Chain King

Postby @ndy » Fri Aug 26, 2011 10:53 am

Hi Guys and Gals

I haven't been on the forum in a very long time and i would like to show you my latest addition.

She is a Beautiful Eastern chain King (Het for albino) Graeme please correct me if i am wrong.

I got her a while back from Graeme and she just gets more beauty with each shed. The photos don't show her colors as great. She is full black with a hint of lime color in her "chain"

I will take better photos of her when i get a new camera

And she has the attitude to match her colors.

Thanks, DK, she has nice bands all they way down to her tail point. Her dad is an albino, when she is ready to breed (2.5 years to go) i would like to get an albino male as her mate.

Do you have any recent photos of this snake? It sure looks more like a Cal king than an eastern and if one of the parents is albino, then it likely has Cal king in there...

You are right Mark, she does resemble the black x speckled. Nice specimen in the second photo. Sorry Andy....did not intend to hijack your post.
