::Ok apparently this is a beginner question since no one has deemed it worthy of being answered on any other forum. Anyway, I really need the leucistic gene(s) explained to me for pine snakes. I understand it is not a simple recessive like it is in rat snakes, so what is it and how does it work. I would really appreciate any info you might have. Geez, maybe we need a Herp Genetics Forum.

:I can't answer your question off the top of my head.

:I have a vague recollection that there was a piece about Pit genetics in one of the issues of Reptiles magazine. I'll try to do a bit of digging, but no promises.

Found the piece about Pituophis in Reptiles, but it was just a survey of the species/subspecies. One or two pictures of morphs, but no genetics. Sorry about that.
