06/22/12 VPI SLACKLINE RED BLOOD PYTHONS PART 2

This clutch has some animals with nice head patterns and the head colors themselves reflect the variation in the adults. The breeder male has a slate grey head and the breeder female has an amazing red head. It will be interesting to see how these head colors change as the snakes mature. There is no question that head color has a variety of phenotypes that we need to work out better in terms of how the variation we see is controlled.

The variation in these snakes is amazing and we have a lot of questions to answer! But that is the challenge and the fun.

We are day 1 with every Red Blood python project!
