Is Hideyoshi just a Banana?

Always wondered if my Banana was just a banana after a breeder actually asked (when we first got him) What else in him? He guessed, Maybe Caramel, fire or (something I can’t remember lol) Since he’s orangey and less spots I assume?
Since he was brought for me by Reece (the other half) as a Banana I didn’t think anything of it.
Got him out today and now wondering again. :sweat_smile:
Hoping he is just a Banana. But assuming unless bred I may not know!

Here’s him a couple months old and him today.

Pics aren’t showing how orangey and bright he is.
Noticed with a lot of photos I post, that they are dulled once uploaded to here?..

It has to do with the fact that cameras can’t really pick up a true representation of how our eyes perceive color, if that makes sense.

In my images though he looks exactly how he does in person.
I’ve found when I add images to MM that the colour is dulled a lot. (Same with all the cresties I post up) Like the site can’t handle the quality of photos we all take if that makes sense!

Maybe he has either Mojave or lesser in him?
Or maybe he has Russo, I heard they keep a lot of orange even as adults.
I doubt it’d be enchi, cause he’d have a more banded pattern.
Or maybe you got a banana that just spots less?
Regardless, he’s a beautiful snake, congrats on having him with you.:nerd_face::+1:

We were just having a search and the other half said he thinks Russo, similar patterning and colour. And also has the yellow on the side.
Suppose if I decide to breed him in the future I’ll know for sure. Getting a little female Bamboo so if any bels pop out I know there’s something :sweat_smile:
Thankyou! He’ll be 2 in around October! :blush:

I’m not sure why your seeing that, we have a cap at 40 megapixels which is very high.

Maybe your gallery app is enhancing them to look better than they actually do, but these look absolutely :fire: on my side.

I agree with your Banana Fire guess here

Hmm it is strange. I’m using an iPhone 11, so unless it does it itself? But he looks the same as in person too so who knows!

It’s the hardly any spots that makes me wonder fire see! He was listed as Banana so I suppose you don’t think any differently, but the fact he’s kept his brighter colours still and the yellow sides, and still not many spots makes you wonder :sweat_smile:
I just expected a dull very spotted banana by now! Who I would obviously love all the same!

I’ve hatched a few of these and I would say no! But as always I can be wrong lol. I would say just banana but I’m looking at pictures and it’s always harder to id older animals imo.
