@solarserpents @ghoulishcresties thank you! Visually they just check all the boxes you can ask for in a snake lol.
@meerkatlyndz I’ve yet to see a palmetto that was even close to as bad as leucistic rats, but they do have a touch of bug eye. Both of these I selected specifically because it’s as minimal as you can get in this morph.
You don’t have to worry about spreading bug eyes. Think of it like spider wobble or bug eyes in Super Lesser BPs. The trait won’t pass on to any other non palmettos. The deleterious gene(s) responsible for the bug eyes are directly tied to the leucistic phenotype.
Here is a comparison of both of mine to a Carmel Tessera that’s appx the same size. You can see the difference, but it isn’t so severe as to be a health concern.
