: Black rat snakes are pretty variable when it comes to coloration, and it is very hard to judge the color of one as a hatchling/yearling.
That's good to know, that was what I was curious about. Is it even possible? :Most black rats will retain some pattern, with the exception of the snakes from the eastern states or from southeastern Missouri where I grew up.

Hrm, well, I got it from a breeder, it was CB, and she said hers went black with a few white specks so hopefully she speaks the truth.
:The coloration can be from dark grey to an olive coloration to solid black. Mine even has some dark golden coloration to him!! That is why I like the black rats so well, is the coloration of these beauties and their personalities are usually pretty chill.
Well, I kinda am prefrential to black snakes :) and the black rat wast he original one I wanted (illegal in the state I lived at the time).
:Post some pics of yours
I will when I get some. Right now he's not been in his cage a day and he's still kinda freaked out by all that goes around him.
