So, my first clutch of nine is all out and shed, but now I’m starting to either get a little stumped or over question myself. The pairing was a Calibee Spotnose (het Orange Ghost) to a Butter (or at least, what was sold to me as a butter, but this clutch is a little odd). There’s definitely a lot going on with this clutch, but there are a few oddballs I can’t find reference photos to. [PHOTO HEAVY]
Baby 1 - Spider? Oddly long dorsal stripe, large, spotless windows
Baby 2 - Butter? They’ve copied the bone pattern on the back momma has, but almost definitely don’t look too buttery. I’m wondering if she’s not the butter she was sold as or something odd lol
Baby 3 - Calico Pastel? Odd grey smudge at the end of the tail
Baby 4 - Spider/Butter what have you; has a spidery headstamp but doesn’t act like a spider. Cream soda with bold blacks and clear windows.
Baby 5 - Calibee (Spotnose? Doesn’t look too exactly like the other Calibee that hatched). High whites, yellow down the back, typical drizzle with a few extra spots.
[From here on, despite the Calibee, I’m very lost for references]
Baby 6 - High whites, drizzle pattern fades off into gentle yellows, faint outlines of spots
Baby 7 - Less drizzle, more structuring forming partial windows that fades off into yellows, higher whites
Baby 8 - Calibee, looks like, yellow down the back drizzles and high whites. Lots of little pixel speckles, hehe.
Baby 9 - Almost identical to baby 6 but with busier back splashes, still creamy with hints of yellows, high whites, faint spots
Congrats if you made it to the end, but if you have any suggestions or snakes that look similar for a comparison for the babies or momma Chubs, it would be much appreciated!
