Snake ID please

Postby GOB » Mon Jun 29, 2015 7:20 am

Hi guys,

could someone please confirm what snakes these are? I suspect the one is an albino corn snake but not sure about the darker one, sorry about the poor picture quality was taken with my phone during some lovely load shedding.

The owner has lost interest and I'm trying to find a new home for them so i need to know what they are, i'd appreciate your help as these snakes aren't being looked after very well.

The darker corn snake looks like a ghost motley to me and the other one is a snow corn.

Hi g scruby!

I've managed to find a home for the ghost motley, still looking for a home for the snow corn, if anyone is keen the guy is selling the snow corn for R300.

I think the first one might be an Anery Motley, not a Ghost Motley.

Second one as Snow is spot on.

Thanks Westley.

The owner ended up giving me the snow as well as a meter long normal corn snake.
