Laura is 100% correct in her answer. She wasn't being argumentative at all. She was simply correcting misinformation.
I don't know what genetics info you are citing but you need to find a new source because your source is either incorrect or your are not fully understanding it.
A "normal" animal with no hets bred to the same will NOT produce anything but "normals" (Laura uses the term "Wildtype" instead of "normal"). The only combos other than two Blizzards that "might" produce a Blizzard are as follows: 1.1 Normals Het Amel & Charcoal, 1.1 Amels Het Charcoal, 1.1 Charcoals Het Amel, an Amel Het Charcoal to a Charcoal Het Amel or a Blizzard to any of the above. The odds of getting any Blizzards increases when one or more of the recessive genes are Homo in one/both of the breeding animals.
To the OP, I recently purchased an adult Blizzard male for $80 at the local Wheaton IL. show. I hope that helps.

Just gonna leave this here.



I'll keep my choice words to myself, since you're only 15.

And genetics on corn snakes confuse me a lot... not like ball phython genetics those are simple

Also dragonling out of curiosity what kind of morphs can a snow make?

Mendelian genetics work the same for all living things. So ball Python genetics is exactly the same as Corn snake genetics with the exceptions of the terms that BP owners coined to describe some inheritance terms ("Super" comes to mind) and some of the genes available in each species.

A larger number of ball python morphs are incomplete dominant (incorrectly but popularly called co-dominant) where most corn snake mutations are recessive. The guide I posted previously may help you in understanding the terminology in any species, but you may have to unlearn some things in the process. Pseudo-genetics run rampant through the herp community, and while oversimplified definitions are an easy shortcut to helping beginners understand what a morph is exactly, they cause more misunderstanding in the long run.

A snow is homozygous for amel and anery, two recessive mutations. Snow is very similar to blizzard because charcoal is considered an "anery-type" (sometimes referred to as Anery B) mutation; it removes red and yellow pigment. When you add amelanism, which removes black and brown pigment, you end up with a mostly white snake. Anery and charcoal do not remove the pigment perfectly, and many aneries still have quite a bit of yellow, so you can still see a little bit of pattern on some blizzards, and usually even more so on snows. Pigmentation is a complex thing in reptiles.

So the only things you can visually produce with a snow are more snows, amels, aneries, and normals.

Wow thank you I'll read about genetics
