So I’m trying to decide on which of these two females is going to stay with me, and I’m hoping to get some clarification.
I posted pics of the entire clutch back when they all shed out, and I thought I had a good understanding of the genes in play, however with the aging and coloring up significantly, I’m wanting another set of opinions on these two…
Originally, this snake was ID’d as bamboo calico pin YB.
And this snake was ID’d as bamboo calico pin (no YB)
And then just for sake of questioning here is a pic of them side by side…
I’m just hoping to better understand what role yb is playing here, assuming original ID’s are correct. Is yellowbelly completely getting rid of that grey/purple coloration down the side of the snake? Giving the more golden look of the snake in the first image? Is it blowing up the pinstripe pattern down the snakes back and causing it to bleed more down the sides and fade?
Hoping to just further my understanding… thanks!!
