Show & Tell
2017 Scaleless corn from parents, HET SCALELESS SUNGLOW MOTLEY x HET SCALELESS SUNGLOW MOTLEY. The exaggerated sheen on the sides--which also smooths out the wrinkles Scaleless serpents always exhibit--is because of distension after resorbtion of its huge yolk before emerging from the egg. Why this one has such faded markings is a mystery to me, since it's the first one from this line not to have bold markings?
reminder: ALL Scaleless corns in the hobby today (including SCALED corns that are carriers of the Scale-less mutation--aka Het Scaleless) are descendants of the original pairing of a Corn Snake to an Emory's Ratsnake (aka: Great Plains Ratsnake) and are therefore technically inter-species hybrids.
