HI all, i acquired this corn a few weeks ago, but have been unable to find any info on or pics of something similar!! Ive found the ruby freckled but they get their freckling with age, this snake is 18 months old and has stayed exactly the same as when it hatched...could it possibaly be an amel with so little red it looks like a spotted snow?????? any help would be great......................thanx

lol i know it looks like wounds but its actually colour pigment in the scales like i said it hatched like this 18 months ago i purchased this corn from a very well known breeder who has just retired and it has no health problems at all but i can see why u asked ( i had to look twice when i saw it...)

I've only ever seen it in a book and it had a lot more red on it but in the corn snake manual they have a piture of one they called it "an unnamed morph bred by the gourmet rodent." Can't find a photo online but i'm sure a few wil have the book

Nice snake :)

snow

Hi
if you purchased it from who I think you did then it is either "Spotty" or an offspring of "Spotty" right? It is pigmant in the scales and a paradox of some sort. You are lucky to own it. Do you intend to breed with it if so what to?

Wow fantastic snow, you need to breed it and see if it can reproduce the effects.

I have seen paradox snow corns talked about on US forums, they usually have more speckling I think - and I've seen photos of some that have had one pink eye and one black eye

I've even heard people talking about future projects of paradox motley / paradox striped, and I think that the paradox effect can be genetic but I'm not sure if it can be carried as heterozygous, don't think anyone really knows about the genetics of it though.

As far as i'm aware it only happens to the snow morph but looks mightly interesting, you're very lucky :)

Looks like the Ruby Freckled to me - maybe you've gotten one who started off with the freckling and might get more freckly with age, or one who's just going to be freckled like that all its life.

It'd certainly be interesting to see what that one reproduces like.
