Some of my Housies

Just thought I would share some pics of what I think are one of the most underrated snakes we have here in South Africa.

Nice collection. I assume the second one is a patternless.

Can someone please enlighten me about the patternless gene? Is it recessive, line bred or simply a locality trait?

If it is recessive, who did it originate from?

Thanks guys,

Westley , The second one is a more of a reduced pattern, the 4th on is its sibling. It's more a locality trait and something that can be line bred
