Busts out a sheet of paper...
Yep, Somewhere between thinking of buying a snow corn and spewing out fractions, I messed up. Score 1: DrZot.
Ok, so in super-extended form (I didn't draw this thing for fun, ya know):
If you breed erythristic and melanistic snakes together, assuming niether or het for the other trait (het = heterozygous = has a dominant and recessive gene for a trait. A normal snake het for erythrism shows normal markings because of the dominant gene, but can contribute a recessive gene to offspring):
16 normals double het for erythrism and melanism.
Breeding two of these together:
2 normal het for erythrism
2 normal het for melanism
4 normal double het for both
2 erythristic het for melanism
2 melanistic het for erythrism
1 melanistic and erythristic (this is what you were looking for)
Kudos DrZot; I will now go put my head in a paper bag and shun myself.
