:Pretty snake! Is that the pure Blais flame or a Blais x erythristic cross?
Pure Blais. She is daughter of the two high ends you sent me. I was worried about inbreeding but I spoke with Phil and he says that the original snakes you got were offspring of crosses from widely divergent areas Northern and Southern Canada. The way snakes travel they were about as unrelated as you could get. Thus not much worry about inbreeding and if line bred you can get all sorts of variations. I saw two snakes that have a little more of the neck coloring (less melanine) than this. However those snakes were distinctly orange. This one is much redder. I also have a three other snakes from the same mother that are much deeper red than this one. However they have more melanine on their necks and backs.
Her sister doesn't have the wide neck ring of red but is a deeper red and has a redder tinged tail. Cracker eats moderately well and is fairly big for a nine month old snake. However her unnamed sister eats like a pig and looks a lot larger.
Don't worry. If and when my (Ery X Flame) X (Ery X Flame) has babies I will be sure to post a group picture.
