    what is it?

    hey everyone so here is the story on my little girl.

    I had been shopping for a while looking at different morphs on the net (still cant identify a morph except for the obvious - pied, luci, spider). and i had seen a few i liked citrus desert butter and citrus desert pastel. so upon looking around at local pet stores i began talking to the snake guy at the best spot telling him about my internet adventures and the two morphs i really liked. well he informs me that they got a few snakes in as normals but he believed to be something more. so i took a look at a few including the one that would eventually come home and they def. did not look like normals, but since they were sold to the store as a normal that was the asking price. i told him that i wanted a female and the one that i was looking at had not been probed yet so i was happy to wait. ffwd to a week later and im told that it is indeed a female (yay!!!!) and in the process of a little more rag chew come to find out that the vendor had called and asked them if they got a shipment of normals that didnt look . . . well . . .normal and that there was a mistake made and that they are either citrus leopard or citrus tiger and that they wanted 150 or 200 or something like that and my pet store said pound sand (sweet!). so after some looking around i dont think she is a citrus tiger and she is close to a citrus leopard but she doesnt have as much black. the closest i found on the net to what mine looks like is a plain citrus or maybe a citrus pastel.

    so here are some pics of her, maybe you folks can tell me

    I can tell you for sure that it's not leopard anything. It looks either a normal or low quality pastel to me.

    Normal, no citrus, no leopard, no pastel just Normal.

    They vary greatly from reduced to bus patter, from dark to light, from clean belly to busy belly, blush to no blush etc

    Just a nice normal. I like the orange on her sides.

    I'm not very good with subtle morphs either. This yellowbelly looks perfectly normal to me LOL. Someday I'd like to get an Ivory (super yellow belly) and compare his offspring to my normal.

    I wouldn't think fire or vanilla. The color and pattern aren't right, and there's not enough fading and blushing going on. The reduced pattern within the alien heads is reminiscent of the two genes though.

    I personally think she's a normal, possibly a yellowbelly. Would need more belly photos to confirm or dismiss that possibility though. She's gorgeous either way, very rich colors.

    EDIT: scratch that, just took a better look at her photos, no yellowbelly.
