Stargazing black rat snake

by licerbob » 30 Dec 2016, 09:21

I just noticed today my baby black rat is stargazing. Is it the same as stargazing in corns? What can I do?

Stargazer is not something what pops out some time.. hom stargazer symptoms are visual soon as they hatch. Its genetic and goes on corn snake okeetee and sunkissed lines. Never heard that any other species has stargazer gene..

Considering how genetically similar they are to corns and the fact that they can interbreed, I wouldn't completely disregard the odds of this snake having stargazer. Do you have a video of it by any chance?
