So caveman what happened to the infamous lineatus x amel capensis?

You remember that Willy bloke, he never posted the pics?

I still think these are capensis but the first one has some "different" pattern

i only heard of it from eric, i was under the impression that none of the house snakes could be crossed, so it never happened then?

That's not mentalis. reminds me more of the striped phase capensis, they have the same eyes, but the striping is not present in this case, but yeah, they don't even look slightly like mentalis. nada!

so what about scale counts, are there any definite way of identifying from them or do too many of the figures cross over to be of any use?

it'll be interesting to see how these develop, cheers guys really appreciate the help
