I really couldn't say for sure but it seems a little unrealistic. In literally over 500 photos I hadn't seen a gila monster with 6 tail bands before and then Kerry pulled this rabbit out of his hat. (LOL)
He had already stated that he feels that the possible origins of its parents were further south more towards the Pheonix area of Arizona a considerable distance from Utah.
Here would be an interesting question (I hope you're reading this Kerry because I just thought of it while I was typing). Out of the three specimens that he saw with the 6 tail bands (2 live and 1 preserved) did they all occur in a close proximity to each other or were they spread out over a large area. If they were relatively close then it might (big stretch here) lend itself to being localized but if they were long distances apart I would feel more that it was an anomally that could occur possibly throughout their range.
Who knows???? But Kerry has shed some light..
PS I think the gila in Kerry's photo is nicer looking than my 6 band (yes I admitted it).
