Other marketing names: Caramel Diffused
Eyes: Brown with a black pupil.
Ventrals: Unpatterned white ventrals in hatchlings, in adults some colour may bleed onto them giving them a mottled appearance which becomes more solid towards the tail.
History: First produced by Rich Z of Serpenco, affectionately called Blood Clots.
Appearance: As hatchlings bloodreds don't look much different colour wise to a Caramel Cornsnake except they have a plain unmarked belly and often reduced markings on a grey head. Some smudging (diffusion) of the colour maybe evident along the sides. As Caramel Bloodreds mature the lateral blotches are diffused, the ground colour is often only a few shades lighter than the dorsal caramel coloured dorsal blotches. The blotches may have remnants of black borders.
Notes: Diffused is often use to describe the pattern trait of Bloodred, when combined with other cultivars. It is also though that the Bloodred gene works co-dominantly as het Bloodreds express some traits such as reduced belly markings usually concentrated to the sides of the ventrals leaving a plain line running the length. The head pattern in hets can also be reduced. It's inheritance isn't fully understood yet but it doesn't appear to be a straight on/off gene.
Varieties and other morph combinations: Sulphur, Amber Bloodred
