Corn snake morph?
 
I recently acquired this little rescue corn and I'm completely mystified by what morph he is, would anyone mind having a guess to satisfy my curiosity? My others are all boring easy morphs :lol2:

He appears to have some level of white-sidedness (flecked with orange). The camera has made him a bit brighter than he is in person, he's more of a dull earthy colour as in the last (terrible) pictaken in daylight. He also has no belly checkers which he did NOT enjoy posing for.


Thoughts? Please and thank you!

Might be more of a hybrid ( corn cross rat snake) rather than a morph

A very old diffused.

Is there any way I can tell if he's a hybrid or not? Would scale counts help?



No idea how old he is. He was found roaming wild, suspected dumped and never claimed. He's still a bit on the skinny side but eating like a champ :D Currently he weighs a grand total of 250g at approx 3ft long.

It is an old "Keys" locality corn snake.
These are sometimes called Rosy Corns.

Not really, only a DNA sequence would really tell what's there. But as others have already mentioned, it's more likely to be a locality of corn that is not often seen these day.

Could well be.

I have seen a few corns that look just like that, usually offered as 'normals', but to me they're too drab to be proper normals- they're usually normal Carolina x black or grey rat, or Keys locale as per SnakeBreeder's suggestion.
