"Golden" corn snake

Postby scmartin27 » 02 Apr 2013, 20:39

This is a corn morph that has been pretty elusive to the publicity for some reason.
This was apparently a wild caught corn snake in South Carolina and it was proved to be recessive by Carsten Zoldey...
Opinions?

The homozygous offspring look a lot more like caramels, so it may be a new line. The new owners of the project are test breeding some of the hets and homozygous offspring to a caramel to see if it is indeed related.

Very nice indeed :mmm: I remember something very similar a few years back (also called Golden) but it just seemed to disappear and I've not seen or heard anything since :(

Eeji, it's the same animal. Joe Pierce and another individual bought her offspring. The original female, the one pictured, passed away this last year.

Thats sad to hear about the original girl :( After a bit of digging around I've found that Joe is breeding his het goldens together this year and there is also breedings to homozygous caramel to test any possible compatability, so after all the years of wondering we should see some results this summer :yay:

and....
