    Those strange Darwin's I bred a few weeks back have had their 1st shed. Boy some of them have startling colours. As I am not into mutations I have no idea what you would even classify these as. IMG_0354.jpg IMG_0355.jpg IMG_0357.jpg

    They're stunning. Good work, will you be keeping them all to see how they turn out?

    nice snakes mate , not that great with mutations myself either but theres a clear lack of melanin so id be leaning towards something hypoish myself but who knows how they will turn out , something different thats for sure

    Just normal looking, if not below average coloured Darwins that have been line bred for around 25 years. Just put 2 pairs of siblings together and never expected this result

    Wow! It must be an amazing feeling seeing something different from the norm hatch out! Especially when it's unexpected and not something that you've tried to achieve.

    Never seen a darwin that I like the look of, (except for the odd albino one), untill now.

    The phone pics do not give them justice. To see their natural colours, particually the slightly darker orange ones is amazing. I have no idea what mutations you would even call these. Some have said hypos, other have said super hypos. Have not got a clue, I just know the are different
