having abit of a query!

how do you tell the difference between an anery snake and a ghost?

the more pics of ghost boas i look at the more i think they resemble one of my boas who i bought as an annery.

just wondering if there was anyway to tell as dont know the parents, could they possibly have been het for ghost and some visual showing through??

cheers

ian

is possible :? thing is aint ghosts usually even more expensive than annerys? as i have never seen any for sale really :? :?

will have to refer to it as the "it" boa until i figure out which one she falls into :lol:

Well as far as i am concerned the anery is a lack of red pigment and the ghost is a ghosting away of the saddles on the snake.That is the way i look at it and the way most people would explain i would think

you know full well she'll be mine soon dude so it won't matter to you :wink:

She does have the pink tinge but I've seen anerys in pictures like this before. Not that you can go solely on pic's mind. Even so I wouldn't think she's a ghost.. saddles are very well marked
