Bloodred Corn Snake - hatched July 2020 in Kendal


Bloodred Corn Snake (July 2020)

This is an exceptionally bright example of a bloodred corn snake hatched in July 2020 (still a baby) currently eating 1-2 pinkies every 5 days, healthy and very active with a calm and inquisitve nature.

Please call for more information.

Bloodred corn snakes carry the masque, diffused and redcoat genes and are usually darker than this specimen. This hatchling is from an old-school bloodred mother and masque het hypo diffused father. The masque gene disrupts the head pattern often resulting in beautiful, sometime skull-like patterns. The diffused gene diffuses the pattern on the flanks, in this case there is, at the moment, little pattern diffusion visible lower on the flank. Diffusion often increases as the snake matures.
The melanin (black pigment) is indistinct in this snake, either an extreme result of the masque gene or the snake also has the hypo gene; probably the latter.
Redcoat intensifies the red colour but also seems to wash the snake so that other pigmented areas seem reddened.
