    Awesome. Just a quick question, how do you tell the difference between Normal and Anery.
    Another question, are my Rosies Normal or Albino.

    An Anerythristic snake would not have any red coloration.

    An Albino has red eyes.

    Ok, thanks for the info. Can you perhaps indicate to me the colour of a normals eyes.

    I beleive that they are basically a dark brown iris with a black pupil.

    Depending on the locality as at least 2 localities have orange eyes,black pupil (mid Baja,catavena) I am not familiar with them all.
    There is a little controversy about eye color in albino rosies as the whitewater and 1 other can/may have dark eyes.

    Your babies appear normal, but if one of there parents are albino, then they would be het for albino.
    Congrats on the beautiful babies.

    Thank You very Much for the info. My lot have been paired now, it is our breeding season for them now. We started Spring on 01 September. I have been cycling since 01 August, with the male for a week with 1 female, then a week by himself, then a week with the other female and so on and so on. I will keep this up till the end of November, and then sit back and wait. These pics are about 2 years old.

    Greetings, you are so right. I think that at the moment there may be only about 3 or 4 of us with adult breeding stock.
    I need your opinion on something. This is the first season that my Rosies are old enough to breed. I brumated them from the beginning of May to the last week in July. I woke them up in the last week of July and from around the second week in August started cycling the male between the two females. This past Saturday I noticed the one female not looking as sleek as usual. She last ate approximately 2 weeks ago, and the meal was a large fuzzy mouse. Am I getting my hopes up for nothing, or does she look Gravid or is she ovulating.

    The pics, although the same, show 2 different light settings.

    Greetings Dan

    Here is the latest pic as discussed in pm.
    For some reason, that bulge near the cloaca seems to move around, sometimes higher up and sometimes lower down in her body.
