Please excuse the sub-standard picture quality. I will dredge up the pictures of the Leucistic Cape Wolf Snake and post them.

What happened to the snoutie and cape wolf?

Not sure what happened to the snoutie, but the wolf snake was bred a few times, so I am sure there are hets around. Both snakes are from the Limpopo province.

I don't know who is the rightful owner on this pic but i had it on my hard drive. I saw this animal in person and it is simply stunning.

That pic of the Rhinkhals was taken by Damien Eagan at TSP many years ago. The snake has subsequently died and was never bred because it is against their policy.

Damn!!!! Just think how it would look if it had some Orange banded blood in it!
That is so sad! Any Idea what area it was found in? but even so, what would be the chances of finding more? But surly it must have had brothers and sisters!!!
Would it work to take a pair of Rinkals, then breed them, then look for the babies with the least black and breed them together and so on?
Is anyone doing something like that?
Probably end up with deformaties before colour morphs and the amount of time it would take (2 or 3 years a generation), would it be worth it? Just think of how much the food alone would cost...
Was there only this one or is there talk of others?
Where I live there are so many rinkals, I caught one on new years day (catch them then take them down to the vlei at the bottom of my road -worried about them getting to my dogs).

Robain the Rinkhals was caught in Glen Austin and we still get call outs to that area but it is far more populated than what it was 10? years ago. It was a baby when it was collected. Since then not even a dead one has been recorded.

What you are suggesting is line breeding which is different to genetically defined morphs.

Does line breeding work out? I am sure Puff adders should be interesting for line breeding, More White, more black more yellow etc...
