Ok so went to the rep shop today for heat mats etc.. didn't intend to buy anything but then something caught my eye.. they had a blotched king and a cali.. so i asked to have a look.. now when i looked at the cali I think they've made a boo boo.. it seems to me its not a normal but a banana.. can anyone clarify if it is please as ive put them on hold.. and dont want to splash out cash if its not

Its hard to find anything definitive on what makes a banana a banana!

Personally I think for something a bit unusual its probably worth getting whether you're certain or not. There is something interesting there even if its not banana.

i dunno wether it is a banana cos i only ever seen albino bananas, the pattern doesn't look like a banana but i could be wrong, it's not a normal anyway.

Yeah I do want to get him/her.. but its marked at £70.. thats where the problem lies. its alot of money for something that may not produce anything like it. I guess it could go with trial and error and breed to a normal cali to see if i produce bananas.

It's not necessarily the pattern that makes a Banana a Banana, it's the color, a quite distinct banana-yellow and brownie black, kinda like what an over-ripe banana would look like. That one there does not look like a Banana King, it looks more like an Abherrant black and white...

Very pretty snake anyhow Timmy....
