From what I know it is predominately Kings x Corns, Corns x Milksnakes, Milksnakes x Kings, Ratsnakes to other ratsnakes and a few others. Unfortunately, there is still a lot of Stigmatism behind hybrids here in SA but there are those few who have no problems with it (Including me :) ) I would however love to see people doing Hybrids like Ball Python x Burmese Python and Woma Python x Ball Python here in SA

Hi snakemaster, welcome to Africa's best reptile site, hybrids, i know of a guy in East London that has baby: Speckled Kings cross to Cal Kings and he also did Snow Corn to Cal king, babies he has from both pairings, will post pics once they have shed and if he brings in to be photographed, personally i'm not a hybrid fan, but each to his own.

I recall someone doing some Bitis hybrids, I think it was Puff Adder x Gaboon Viper. But I would have to look that up.
There are some objecting to hybrids from a conservationist view, but I can't see it will be a problem, since the snakes are kept domestically.

Don't take me wrong, I dig hybrids. Saw some awesome pics of a Corn x King cross and I thought "Holy cr@p, that looks better than any of the morphs you get with the parent snakes"
