Iridescent head on bullsnake baby

Is this a unique trait to have iridescence in the black stripe from the eyes and the black circle on the head (See photos)? Is this bullsnake an Axanthic morph?

I found this baby bullsnake in the Sierra Nevada mountains in California.


Gorgeous and I mean even that headstamp. What a very very cool find! Iā€™m not even a fan of other snakes, but that one is definitely a fave now


Interesting pics. Is the iridescence confined to that narrow area rather than being on the whole face ? I see it quite a bit on corn snakes, generally over the whole of the upper face/head.
