Hi all-

What's the deal with what I hear are "normal" siblings to SalmonXArgentine boas? I just picked up a Salmontine, but it doesn't look Salmon, or Argentine. Looks more like a stange Colombian. She is about 3.5-4' and she has fairly typical Colombian pattern, with her color being a tannish orange. Very weird. Personally, her head is slightly different, and the only main giveaway of the Argentine influence is the short, nearly black tail. Could anyone explain the gentics here to me, since I know she was produced from a Salmon X Argentine cross. Could she be a normal sib, and if so, what exactly is that. It's just that she does not look like any of the Salmontines I have seen pics of, which all look overwhelmingly Salmon in coloring!

Thanx,
Brian
