I believe it is just an exceptional animal. I know Robert could better answer that than me. I am new to the Rattlesnake arena. I just see something I like and go with it. Gilbert Thompson
:....I was wondering why it was posted with the name Gilbert and signed Robert, but now I know. OOPS.
:Anyway. I have only seen one lepidus from 277 personally when I was there last year and have seen a few pics of others, but that one is SWEET. Is that a typical color morph from that area or is that just an exceptional animal? Hopefully all the babies look like mom.
