Hi folks, I’m hoping someone can shed some light on American breeders of Elaphe Carinata and especially its’ morphs.
I’ve been keeping reptiles since I was a young kid and have evolved into a keeper that does enjoy the morph craze, but still have a passion for the days when wild caught types were the norm at shows and people tended to keep a variety of just about everything.
As a kid, I didn’t know much of Chinese King Rats, aside from hearing the moniker “Stinking Goddess” on occasion. The name alone was apparently sufficient to keep any interest from developing.
So, fast forward 25 years and I am slowly unraveling the epic beauty and apparently oft-undeserved moniker of the Chinese King rat snake. My digging so far has revealed albinism, scaleless, and if you haven’t seen it yet, you’re in for a REAL treat; Axanthic/Anerythristic!
Problem is, American availability seems limited to albinos! Is there anyone out there aware of any North American breeders of any of the rest of the morphs?
Any insight would be truly appreciated!
Be Brave, Stay Wild, and Make Today Awesome!
