Thank you, Nancy Mindlin for this stunning female Scaleless Cornsnake.  WILDLY aberrant pattern is not common in Scaleless corns, but aberrant pattern is perhaps more common than classic pattern in these scale-less mutants.  It is believed that what constitutes the pattern of some wild-type cornsnakes is the combination of lower-dermal pattern, overlaid by associative epidermal pattern elements.  The latter, of course, missing in these scale-less mutants, renders only part of a cornsnake's familiar wild-type pattern.
