    Just wanted a quick second opinion

    So I'm throwing payments at a bamboo woma, and she'll be in my hands the first week of September (saw her picture the same day I made my rent payment - balancing a snake hobby and adulting can be a real pain) but I'm having a little itch about whether or not she's a woma. The blushing/pattern on her head looks more like a pastel bamboo, but her overall patterning is really reduced, the way woma tends to do to bamboo. I shot off an email yesterday asking about the pairing that produced her, but haven't heard back yet. Busy time of year, after all

    In the hours of googling I've done, I haven't been able to find a similar head pattern on a bamboo woma. I'm was wondering if she's a really nicely reduced pastel bamboo, but as I'm not the best at morph ID and a total airhead 90% of the time, a second opinion would be much appreciated.





    I'm totally prepared to be wrong, but it would have bothered me forever if I didn't ask.

    Pastel bamboos with reduced pattern like that aren't terribly uncommon. I've never seen a bamboo woma without a headstamp though...

    You may be right. The head really makes me think pastel instead of woma.

    You are terribly robbed because the head stamp not showing any woma or spider gene, looks as a pastel.

    Not necessarily? I don't mind if it's pastel or woma either way, she's still a beautiful snake. I can work with either for the future plans I have as far as breeding projects go, and all the prices I've seen for female woma/pastel bamboos are in the same price range. I just wanted to double check what I was seeing so that I could inform the seller and reaffirm my own opinion.
