    Anyone have pics of adult bananas?

    hello all,

    I was originally turned off of bananas when I heard about the spotting, but have come around on that issue. After seeing one adult banana in a video on youtube, I'm thinking that I might actually be interested in the morph.

    My question for you guys, is do you have any pictures of adults that you can share? I've seen scores of baby pics, but just can't tell how much patterning is visible on the adults. I've heard that their colors fade, leaving mostly yellow, but the one adult I saw (in that video) still had visible, but faded, pattern. I'd like to know if that was an exceptional specimen, or if this is common with bananas in general.

    My thoughts are turned to possibly combing banana with hypo and seeing if that takes care of the spotting issue, but again, if they don't retain much / any patterning as adults, I'm thinking that they would keep even less with hypo involved.

    Thanks for your time and help!

    i don't have a single gene Banana or Coral Glow but i have 3 Banana combo's, all 1-2years old and 800-1000grams. i don't have pix of them on me but i can try to get pix if you're interested. they are:
    1. Banana Mojo - almost no freckling (as w/ other Banana BEL combo), nice light yellows on muted lavender
    2. Banana Cinny - high freckling, orange pattern turned peachy
    3. Banana Champ combo - a little freckling, colors remain mostly same - light yellows and lavender

    anyway i don't think Hypo/Ghost would eliminate the freckles; it would just turn them a bluish-grey. BEL-genes or Albino would.

    Keep in mind, the ones with freckling you'll pretty much always see the pattern for the simple fact that the speckles only appear in the darker part of the pattern. There are some combos out there that supposedly don't get freckles. With those I'd be worried about them looking like just a solid yellow snake as adults but I have not seen adults with no speckling so I'm not sure, they are beautiful as babies though.

    All I can think of when I see this thread is how someone outside of the snake world would interpert this

    Thank you for your input guys!

    It seems that you have to either choose to have patterns that show, but have freckles, or have less visible patter and less freckling. It is still hard to tell what color range these guys have as adults, so I may just have to wait to see an adult at an expo and make a decision on how much I like them in person. I can live with the freckling (especially the animals with lighter freckling), but if the animal will be mostly yellow with little visible pattern, I'm not sure that would interest me as much.

    I belive that Banana Pinstripes have very minimal speckling.

    You might want to look into a banana enchi. While they do tend to have more yellow than a typical banana, they keep quite a keep of the pattern overall.

    Regius_49 Thank you for that information... If I could find an animal like the one you pictured, I'd be happy...Still pretty visible pattern and fairly clean in terms of freckling. I'll just have to look around and see if I can find one that is het hypo or hypo to see if it would work with my plans.
