    Drastic color change on this hatchling

    How about the drastic color change on this Black Head Pastel Sugar! These photos were taken roughly a month apart!




    (The photo on the left was taken around the time he hatched, late July, and the photo on the right was taken the other day, September 1st)

    That's amazing, especially for only a month apart. With some other snakes (like corn or rat snakes) yellow can take a year to fully develop. TKS for sharing!
    Many friends in low places...

    That Sugar sure "caramelized" nicely. It's so cool to see the side-by-side, like watching silver turn to gold! (Also thanks for the Instagram link, just added you; that super dark Blackhead Sugar you posted most recently is a real stunner.)

    That's amazing, almost like looking at the same snake in black and white then in color.

    Re: Drastic color change on this hatchling

    That's pretty wicked... not sure I've ever seen such a drastic color change in that short of a time span myself.
