    Mystery snake, anyone want to take a shot?

    Recently acquired this guy and am having a tough time tracking it back to the original breeder. Anyone want to take a shot at whats in there?

    It's very very difficult from photos under these circumstances but it kind of has the general look of a mystic or phantom. Tram lines are often a red herring and only really come into consideration when it is a known pied clutch

    Update: The previous owner paired it with a pied and one of the hatchlings was a pumpkin pied. So, proven yellowbelly. Proven het pied. Still looks like there might be something else there... Weird.

    Either way he has a very clean pattern

    What makes you think granite? I just bought a yellowbelly/granite hatchling and I thought there was no way to tell.

    Its mainly in the pattern. The question is always if its genetic or not.
