All Tail No Legs: Snake Blog

A little blog about my derpscales. Occasional cat photobomb.

Unsure what to title this. When you’re lied to in the business, or, Rolling with the punches? VAT A TWEEST?

Okay, maybe that last one.

I’m going to cut right to the chase. I bought Soleil specifically as a super lesser, to make easy super lesser white babies into the sunset, no worrying what each BEL was, and so on.

And then I bred him and this baby popped out.

And I’ve been a bit stressed ever since. I mean, what is this? I didn’t want to call a seller a liar, but more importantly I wasn’t sure what this was. Too dark to be a lesser, definitely not the colors of a mojave. The egg colors weren’t helping. After a few threads mentioned dark funky lessers popping out of  BEL breedings, I had to just wait and see if he ‘lessered up’. Thankfully winter kicked in so I could just sit and not sell him for a bit, since I won’t be shipping in this weather anyway.

Surprise, he didn’t quite turn into something I’d call a lesser. I began consulting multiple breeders, and we all came to a pretty comfortable conclusion. I let him color up a tiny bit more to be sure, double checked other markers, have all my ducks in a row for this post.

I’ve got a het russo baby in my hands.

So Soleil is a lesser russo.

Well okay then. Did anybody want a het russo?

can I get to chondros already where I only have to worry about family trees

    I really hope I’m not the only one who silently despises the name because of this confusion

    So I’m confused. What on earth makes this baby different from a normal, ‘cause it looks exactly the same?
