Gorgeous Zip! I have two of my own. Hera is a normal colored female like yours, about 3 ft. Apollo is a young male. Hes a Black Pastel Pied morph, and is nearly all white with just a flick of black here and here, and the black pastel coloration on his head and face.

Not hardly! Haha Ill get you a photo up soon. Rather than the 30k they wanted for stormtrooper (until he aged and the brown coloration showed up) we only paid about $600 for Apollo haha.

If my male is up to breeding weight I will take you up on it. If not this year, certainly next.

Looks like a juvenile racer. Not sure what species you have around you, though.

I used to have one and they're fun little snakes. They think they're 10' long and bullet-proof. :D

Yeah ... you might be right, dflanagan.  I had one in my hands today ... maybe 10 inches long.  Picked it up to save it while mowing my Mom-n-law's yard.  I'd forgotten about them until I found that one, today.  No camera with me. 

 

Picked up a 7 inch baby Ring Neck Snake there last week.
