Show & Tell
SMR Fluorescent Corn Snake. This is not related to Rich Zuchowski's similar Amelanistic (albino) corn morph, Fluorescent Orange, though they look very much alike in appearance. As Rich did, we started our line with a wild-type Extreme example Okeetee bred to a classic Amelanistic. We dropped the name "Orange" from our Fluorescent morph name because we make some that have orange largely supplanted by red, but also to denote that these are not related to any of his stock. Does this make ours special? Certainly not, since anyone can make corns like this one by starting the way Rich and I did, but from there it takes many years and generations of selecting the best target phenotypes to breed to one another. I cannot think of an Amelanistic version of corn that offers more pleasing color and contrast than these. This photograph also dramatically demonstrates how most gene mutations in snakes would make them glowing targets for predators in the wild.
