Now approximately 13" long, this male 2016 Kisatchie (aka: Slowinski'd Corn Snake), Pantherophis slowinskii, is currently eating frozen/thawed pinky mice. His$750.00 usd
I will be marketing SILVERLEAF mutants of the species, Pantherophis slowinskii for Brad Lichtenhan and Gregg Feaster. This mutation is recessive to wild-type and still quite rare in the hobby, despite their discovery back in 2006, and subsequent limited market availability from then to now. The only other mutation of this species was discovered here at South Mountain Reptiles. It is an Anerythristic-type mutation, monochromatically expressing only melanin. I call them BLACK KISATCHIES because some people incorrectly infer that the Anerythristic gene mutation from corn snakes was infused into the Kisatchies via inter-species hybridization. Hence, this Anery-type mutation in Kisatchies is not allelic to Anery corn snakes. They were once called Black-eyed Kisatchies, but their eyes are not black, so I continue to use the original name I assigned, Black Kisatchie. It will be a few years before we can offer any of the Black Kisatchies, but that project is currently in progress. BTW, what is appealing about the Black Kisatchie mutants is that they do not retain or express carotenoid yellow like most corn snake Aneries do. Though it was done by some when they were first discovered, we have NEVER crossed corn snakes with Kisatchies.
