Hi BB yip they are Albino het for blizzard, the female laid slugs last year and the year before some funny eggs of which 5 hatched all albino's so I guess I am trying to prove the blizzard line. The male has produced blizzard with another female a friend of mine had.

We can always make a plan, she has gone into the blue so I will try them again once she has shed. I need the motley genes in the Gunston blood.

Unfortunately it always takes time Gnar!! I've been raising my albinos and little corns for the past 2 - 3 years and only now will they hopefully mate.

Trust me it is worth it all, it also took me an age to get going and I will never forget my first corn egg to hatch. The baby had kinks in the spine. I nearly cried and I though the whole batch would be like that. I was lucky it was only the one and the female you see with the motley is one of those babies.
So trust me it will happen and the more you wait the beter you enjoy.

Hi Not at all, I would like to believe it is a new color morph of corn but no not a hybrid.

Hi Meg

(correct me if I'm wrong please Gary)

Gunston is the name of a project that Gary was/is working on,A top breeder in CT and a friend of his. When he moved from Durban was repotting some of his plants and came across some corn snake eggs which he incubated, then he bred one of the females from these eggs to a normal and he got a pair of these "gunstons"

Thanks gnarhimself I like the way you have got the story, that is so good. There is another part which I only heard the other day and that he found the body of the female who he suspected laid the eggs and she was normal!!!
