Help with Identification

Postby Carlo » Wed Feb 04, 2015 6:09 pm

Good evening

I have purchased a corn snake male some time ago from a petshop in South Africa but had no identification on the morph I bought.Now that I am about to experiment in some breeding I could kick myself for not making the effort to find out what morph it was.Hope anybody will have some kind of idea.

Thanx

Looks like an amelanistic motley to me, no telling what it might be het for. Been a few years since I was involved with corns, so I'm sure someone else will have a more detailed answer for you
Happy herping :D

Thanx Viper_SA.
I looked at a few internet pics and might think you hit the spot.I also ended up with the same conclusion. Thanx a million for your time.

Pleasure. Beautiful snake by the way. I still remember my first amelanistic cost me like R700.... Great prices available lately.

Yeah, I agree with Viper_SA.

I would be tempted to call it a Sunglow Motley, which is just a fancy Amel Motley.

I second Westley on this one.

Lovely corn. I'd also say it's a Sunglow Motley (which is basically a brighter coloured amel motley with no white).
