Baby White Specks, Incoming

Here’s a photo of a female speckled rattlesnake that I have in my office … she’s ridiculously beautiful as you can see. She’s also recently been quite friendly with the big male of the same variety and coloration that lives with her, so friendly in fact that I expect some babies in a few months. Exciting stuff!

  2. Anthony says:

    Wow, that is a ridiculously nice looking mitchelli, Bryan!

  3. Crotalus says:

    Is that their natural color, as though they were meant to blend in with a white granite, or is it a specially bred color morph, like one sees with corn snakes?

  4. Norman says:

    Very nice and well done Bryan!

    I am sure babies are spoken for, but can I be put on a list if you have one?

    Hey, Bryan. I had no idea you had a breeding project w/ white specks! Very nice. Like Norm, I have to ask, do you have any plans to gift any progeny? I only keep the one cerb, but I would DEFINITELY make room for a beautiful creature such as these. If you have any left over after the mile long waiting list (I’m quite sure it MUST be!lol) I would love to adopt one. I never check my e-mail, but you can find me on the AHA site. Thanks, Bryan.

    P.S. Hit me and Benny up when the monsoons hit and we’ll go back out to the Supes. Hopefully, we can find more than some atrox and a trimorphodon this
