Female hypomelanistic bullsnake.

I have recently acquired a pair of adult hypomelanistic bullsnakes. I am told that they are het. for snow. I plan to breed the male into some of the red bullsnakes found in the Davis Mountain area.

The female laid ten eggs while I was on an extended trip. By the time I got home they were dried out and shrunken in, but I managed to salvage five of the eggs. What came out of the eggs was rather a surprise. A picture of the first four out of the eggs is below. To see all five in individual pictures, click on the picture of the four.

If you can tell me exactly what I have here and what genetics are taking place, please email me. I'm wondering what else would have come out if the other five eggs had been salvageable.
