Your snake will probably turn all black. Most people who breed black rats strive for the jet black ones. They are a beautiful animal indeed. Yours should start darkening up within 6 months. Most of the black rats that turn jet black will be pretty close to all black by the time they are a year old. Some pattern may still be visible, and that will disappear with time. Although when the snake feeds or is nice and fat from a big meal, the pattern can sometimes be visible. You may even see some red flecking between the scales!
Black rats are my all time favorite snake.
How about this pic of my Albino black rat. It is Dwight Good stock and really growing fast!
I need to take a recent pic, this is from Nov, and he is quite a bit bigger.
