Misty:

This has happened to me too. I send out a snake to have the customer notice exactly the thing you see there. The snake hatches with this deformity, but when you're hatching hundreds/thousands of snakes like Rich and Connie are, some will get by ya. It won't go away and might even become more pronounced. I've never known it to be necessarily detremental to their health. I have had some snakes with this deformity live long natural lives and became good breeders.

I'm sure if you bring it to Rich's attention he'll make it right with you. He's a very honest person and if he didn't mention this malformity, I'm positive he never noticed it. If anyone sees something like this, it's always a good idea to immediately bring it to the attention of the breeder. Rich is like me in that he will immediately bend over backwards to compansate you or replace the animal.

Good luck,

Don
