uhm, would it be psychoside? lunacide? I think I like lunacide....

Nothing -cide... that suffix is the part that means killing... Psychocide or lunacide would mean killing a lunatic. Not quite what Rich was doing. Maybe something like suipsychotide would work... one who makes oneself psychotic.

Suiloony seems appropriate then. Making ones self a lunatic.

How about suinsantity...the act of driving oneself insane.

Hmm...doesn't sui- mean pig?
Then wouldn't suicide be a pig killing?

(Actually, yes, sui can mean either: 1 self, 2 a pig)

Suidementia? (Self dementia)
Suiagadementate? (to drive oneself very crazy)

Er, how about just plain crazy? Yeah. I can spell crazy.

Rich, you are going to need to sink a lot of money....

into some kind of genetic testing on those corns that you have bred that are possibly.....or maybe possibly...... It would probably be cheaper to devise a test to see what their actual genetic breakdown is than to keep 164 or 256 or whatever the total number of corns are that you need to ascertain whether you have bred any that are really ........

All this genetic talk makes my eyes cross. I think that I will just stick to my (hopefully) normal male and my (hopefully) normal striped female and my (hopefully) only amel male and my (hopefully) only sunglow female breeding.

Regardless, almost all the corns out there are gorgeous snakes! I plan on enjoying them for a long time.

I like the introduction of hypo.....

It makes sense that the reduction of darker, harsher colors will allow the more subtle variations show through. It just takes a bit longer to prove by adding an addtional recessive trait.
Patience is definately a requirement when it comes to the exploration of corn genetics!
