I’m looking into becoming a breeder over the next three years. I don’t plan to buy all of my snakes from Petco but for the price I couldn’t turn these down. I do understand the spider issues. What do you think the genetics are? Thanks
Top one could be anything from a normal/wild-type to a whole range of things, were going to need better pictures to even attempt.
The one with the lighter head in the bottom picture looks to me like a Killer Bee ( super-pastel spider) and the other is a pinstripe of some sorts… Again we are going to need better pictures.
Lovely snakes though.

I’ll get some better pics up tomorrow. The “killer bee” has some shed I need to deal with. The normal looking one is more yellowish than the normals I’ve seen. It however has a bad attitude and I want to get it home and relaxed before I start messing with it. I’m a truck driver and I deliver for Petco. I don’t want something to happen and the snake doesn’t want to cooperate with me in the truck. Sounds like a potential disaster lol
Better pics would help us identify more accurately. I’m leaning towards the fire gene for the top one
Yeah I’ll definitely put it up tomorrow. I was told that one doesn’t like to be handled much.
Some of those pics I notice a bit of stuck shed all over the snake. I know you just got them but make sure your Temps and humidity are on point so their first shed with you removes that old one
I’m nearly 100% on the Killer Bee…
The pinstripe has something else going on with it, maybe pastel.
Hopefully a few other guys will pop up and help ID again, they are lovely
@eaglereptiles you are pretty on point. I agree with it being a killer bee. I’m 99.9% sure the other one is a lemonblast
Thanks. I know they got a long way to go for breeding but we all got to start some where I suppose.
I’ll check out lemon blast on the market and see if I see any that look the same. Thanks!
That was the reason that pushed me over the edge to go ahead and get them. My original plan was to get a nice pied at the tinley narbc this weekend. I might still can. Just depends on price
A low end pied will run you around 200 to 250. Maybe lower if you are a good negotiator
Lemon blast (pinstripe Pastel)
Killer bee (super pastel spider)
@nathan_e were getting the hang of this
So it would be safe to assume the other is a pastel?
Looks like a normal to me.
If you could get better pics of that i could look and see if i can tell for sure, but doesn’t look pastel in the box
You did good. It takes years of learning and looking at them to be able to know what they are, and then there times they will still stump you
Thanks. I’ll get some pictures of the third when I get home. I don’t want to mess with it in the truck
