Can you breed any of the rat snake types? Like texas rat, gray rat, yellow rat, or corn snake with each other?
The Scaleless mutation in corn snakes is actually from the TX rat. grey and yellow rat are actually the same species according to the taxonomy. And numerous of the corn snake morphs actually have their origin in one rat species or another
Ok, thank you for the help!
IDK for certain, but I’d guess the chances of success, or of producing healthy and fertile offspring would decrease if you tried to hybridize North American species with Old-World Rat Snakes so I’d suggest you avoid that route. But yes, breeding corns with NA Rat Snakes, Kingsnakes, Milksnakes, and even Gopher Snakes has been done and many of the results are quite attractive.
