Cultivar: Bloodred Stripe (Homozygous Bloodred & Stripe)
Genotype: DD.DD ,  ms·ms
Eyes: Brown with black pupil
Ventrals: Unpatterned white ventrals in hatchlings, in adults some red/orange may bleed onto them giving them a mottled appearance which becomes more solid towards the tail.


History: In 1999 Richard Hume crossed a bloored male het Anerythristic to a striped female. From this clutch both Normals & Anerythristic hatchlings where produced meaning his stripe female was also het Anerythristic. He sold on some of the babies and kept an Anerythristic male and a Normal looking female. In 2001 he bred the siblings back to one another and produced 16 hatchlings, but no striped bloodreds. From this clutch he kept a reddish striped Corn which later proved out to be het for Bloodred. In 2002 he produced the first Striped Bloored, a male.

Appearance: Stripe blood adults usually only have two stripes, not the four that is seen in normal Stripes. This is because the diffusion affects the side stripes and eliminates them. Hatchling Bloodred Stripes have the typical grey head of Bloodreds. Some adults will mature into nearly patternless red/orange snakes.

Combinations: Fire Stripe, Pewter Stripe, Granite Stripe
