    Awesome looking carpet! I am 90% sure you have a "Jag Sib" Irian Jaya. It is most likely a jungle and IJ cross. It definitely looks Jaya, and definitely does not look pure. Pretty looking guy tho. How are you keeping him? They are easy to keep, but different, and he will end up being your favorite snake most likely lol. You know how snakes are addictive? Carpets are addictive on their own lol. Fascinating snakes. Active, docile (not at first sometimes) smart, and they make great display snakes. Please, let us know if you have any questions about care and set-up. Justor has a beautiful coastal, and I think there is another frequent carpet enthusiast here as well. Congrats on the additions

    Also... either coastal or IJ is a HUGE huge difference. Like 6 foot difference. Coastal females get to around 11 feet. IJ females get to 5'.

    I'm seeing more coastal than anything else in the carpet. If there is any IJ at all it is a very low percentage. Nobody on the face of the earth will be able to give you a definitive answer except for the individual who bred the snake (and even then it depends on how meticulous they are about genetics). Breeders really should put in the effort to make sure their customers know exactly what they are buying, and that is more true with carpets than with any other group of snakes. Thanks to their multiple subspecies, high variability within those subspecies, and an ever increasing bag of morphs to pull from we end up with lots of out crosses. That's not necessarily a bad thing as long as breeders make sure their customers know what's going on, but that isn't always the case. My point being your snake is not necessarily "either" an IJ or coastal. It could just as likely be a cross between the two, or even a cross between an IJ a coastal and a jungle for all you know.
