Eyes: Dark grey/black with a black pupil
Ventrals: White unpatterned ventral scales as hatchlings, adults may develop some mottled colouration especially towards the tail.


History: The first known Stripes were hatched by Mike Nolan of the UK in the mid 80's. Ernie Wagner brought the parents and the babies and imported them back into the USA. Since then the Stripe gene has been bred into almost all known cultivars.

Appearance: Anerytristic Stripes are predominantly grey with four longitudinal stripes. As these snakes mature many gain a brownish overcast to their colour and some yellow colouration to the chin and neck region which may extend down the sides.

Notes: The Motley & Stripe genes share the same locus, although Motley is dominant to Stripe. If you were to breed a Motley to a Stripe the resulting hatchlings appearance would be that of a Motley but they would be carrying the Stripe gene, these are known by the marketing name of Motley Stripe.
