hypo - short for hypomelanistic, it's a color morph of cornsnake with reduced black pigment so it ends up with very thin black borders (or gray borders) as compared to normal cornsnakes

locality - in cornsnakes, it's describing a color or morph that is linked to a certain region. For examples, Okeetee is a version of a normal cornsnake that is supposed to have very bold, thick black borders, and was orginally found by the Okeetee Hunt Club in Jasper Co., SC... there is also Miami locality, which is a cornsnake that is more gray (or brown) instead of orange, which is found in the Miami, FL area.

As I've learned today, you can find snakes that fit these colors, though aren't linked to the orginal region by ancestry at all... thus they would not be "locality" Okeetees or Miamis.

Okeetee - I kind of explained this above, but it is the name for a specific color version of the normal corn snake, relating to the region where it occurs naturally



Now we will wait to find out how correct I am when Romy sees this.
Yup! You got it right.

Want to know what's really weird? I'm getting out of snakes, and have only two left and they are both available. Can you guess what morphs they are?

Hypo bloodred and sunglow motley.

Just thought that was a bit weird, since you and ravenrr both mentioned wanting those morphs. *insert spooky music*

This is Circe, the sunglow motley. She's in blue right now.




And Mercy, the hypo bloodred. He's a little on the thin side because last summer/fall he had a mouth infection and refused to eat. He's healthy now, but still putting his weight back on because the silly dude insisted on brumating instead of getting fat this winter.

Actually, that probably saved his life because he was dormant when our power went out while we were out of town and it snowed.
