  • Lemon Cow Sucker - Ratsnake Information
    Lemon Cow Sucker Other marketing names Lemon Black Ratsnake Eyes Blue iris with a black pupil History In 1990 a young boy and his mother walked into a pet store in Kentucky where Will Bird was working carrying a can with a snake in it They wanted to swop the snake for a turtle as the son wasn t allowed to keep snakes Will was explaining to them that they don t do trades when he caught sight of the snake for the first time Stopping in mid sentence he obliged there request and they left happy with a turtle and full setup The snake was only young but it was solid white with black pupils and blue irises The snake belonged to the Pet Store but Will took a special interest in that snake and says as it grew it developed two black stipes the length of it s back which have continued to get darker throughout it s life As the snake matured he began to look for a female from the same locality as this one was found but without any luck He decided rather than to waste a breeding season to mate him to a female Amelanistic Black Ratsnake This breeding produced six eggs which all hatched Will left the Pet Store shortly after they hatched to work at Louisville Zoo Two years later he received a call saying that only two of the babies remained from that litter he immediately set off for the Pet Store armed with every litter of Carpet Pythons that he had bred that year to strike a deal for them The trade was made and the pair of snakes went home with Will The following spring the female laid six perfect eggs From these six eggs only one normal hatchling

  • Leucistic - Ratsnake Information
    It was deep grayish brown dorsally with dark red tones the ventral scales were unmarked except for some reddish and gray suffusion posteriorly The eyes had an unusual copper tint to the irises This trait is apparently some form of hypomelanism and is now generally referred to as the Rusty Black Ratsnake This snake ended up in the collection of Larry Rouch formerly of Stafford VA Larry proved the Rusty trait to be codominant evidenced by F1 offspring exhibiting the trait The original Rusty was bred to a normal wild caught female He further discovered that the Rusty trait was linked to leucism as well when he did a Rusty x Rusty breeding and produced leucistics in the clutch The first leucistics he had available for around 500 750 a pair Appearance Hatchlings are born pink as they mature they turn white It is not unusual for them to develop a few random coloured scales on the body Notes Snakes develop there colour whilst still in the egg approx two weeks before hatching If you have ever had a hatchling leave it s egg prematurely you will of noticed that it looks very faded compared to a fully developed baby This is due to the chromophores not having fully migrated from the neural crest to the skin The neural crest is like a cell nursery and at various points in the embyo s development these cells leave the nursery neural crest in waves known as chromatoblasts What the leucistic gene does is stop the chromatophores from developing or prevents the chromatoblasts from reaching the dermis skin Leucistic snakes have no melanophores dark pigment cells no xanthophores yellow pigment cells and only very limited amounts of iridophores reflective pigment cells this is why their skin appears white The eyes get there
