:I will know for sure if this is genetic or not in about three more months.I will keep you all updated either way.I have been working on this now for six years.
Bear in mind that I don't keep baird's rats (I hope to someday), and am transferring other species' traits to this one.
Did you find this snake as a hatchling with the white? Or was it a sub adult/adult? I know in a couple species (reticulated pythons and a morph of corns), the "pied" or "calico" comes in gradually. If this works that way, the only thing I can see you doing is keeping all of the F2 for a year or two, to see if it comes in eventually. Worse comes to worse, you've got beautiful normals with some growth to them already. And I know this has probably already gone over, but there's also the possibility that those are scars.
Anyways, best of luck, and I hope it's genetic!
