Show & Tell
This 2016 Buckskin Okeetee corn snake could very well qualify as a Miami Okeetee at maturity, but since both of her parents were Buckskin Okeetees, she'll hold that morph title for now. So far, too much yellow for a good Miami phase. Note that both Buckskin and Miami phases/morphs in our hobby are named for their satisfaction of the loose color standard. No gene mutation is responsible for the look of either. Only polygenetics (interactions between common genes). No, she's not obviously shy. She smelled the last snake I'd photographed in that very spot. Since all of our snakes are, of course, individually housed, they seem to relish anything NEW that they smell?
