Kinda slow around here....Maybe these will liven it up a little....Maybe not.....
Youve got some beautiful snakes there! Thanks for sharing!!
Beautiful beyond words, I'll take one of each! :x
That one on top is gorgeous! What kind is he?
I like the second one, is that one of the new cornsnake morphs?
I'll take the second one please
I believe they are Kingsnakes! Gorgeous aren't they
Beautiful. Thanks for sharing . Yes I believe the first is an AZ Mountain KS, and the second is a Mexican if I am not mistaken.
Yep defintly not corns
They are stunning!! I wish we'd get something as cool as those up here!
To clarify, these are all kingsnakes....
The first one is a high black Arizona Mountain king - Lampropeltis pyromelena pyromelena
The second one is a granite Mex Mex king - Lampropeltis mexicana mexicana
The third is a white leonis phase Nuevo Leon king - Lampropeltis mexicana leonis "thayeri"
The fourth is the first amel tricolor ever, a Queretaro king - Lampropeltis ruthveni
And last is a Black Gap locality Gray Banded king. He is het for hypo and possible het for anery - Lampropeltis alterna
Do you mean the first for you?
I have seen amel ruthvens for sale in herp shows several times.
Now thats a beautiful group of pics
Awesome kings you got there
No...I mean in 1987 Terry Heuring produced the first amel tricolored king snakes from some will Amealco, Mexico Ruthveni from Bill Garstka.
Since these FIRST amel tricolors there have been many other amel tricolors produced.....coincidentally?....I don't know.
But Albino Ruthveni have been used for TONS of hybrid projects.
Queretaro Kings were the First Amel Tricolor......
Ok! From what I was reading it sounded like they had never existed before the one that you had.
And I knew that wasn't right! LOL!
LOL....but I do have some Mex Mex that are the only ones in existence.......I'll share later......
And if we produce the amel super striped ruthveni it will be the first of its kind as well......
