Controversial Qestion

Not to start a war on opinions, I just want yo know. Do the babies in the pics look like Jungle Corn Hatchlings. Someone advertised them, but I think they are pure corns.

Personally, I don't see anything in those pics that were alert me to any sort of hybridization taking place to produce them. But then again, I never knowingly worked with hybrid corns.

Typically, a jungle corn is a 50/50 product of a California king mated to a corn snake. However, that doesn't mean the seller isn't just acknowledging the fact that those young snakes are hybrids. They could have more than 50% corn lineage, and they do look like corns. The one curious thing is the dark spot just behind the eyes of each snake. I have seen that on several kingsnakes, and kingsnake pictures.

I'm more than content raising what I'll call pure corns, but if I found out one of my snakes had suspect lineage I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

Thank You to everyone that answered, I find the spot behind the eyes to be interesting. I never knew that about King Snake hatchlings. Thanks.

What "dark spot" are you referring to?

Presumably the central , dark scale just behind the eyes ( top oh head )

That's it, the dark scale spot. It's usually more pronounced in a king snake.

Heck, never paid any attention to that when I was hatching out the little buggers. I actually went through some of my old pics (from back in 2006) and had to search through quite a few pics to find any babies having something similar. So it doesn't seem common, at least in the babies I hatched out back then. But it is an interesting observation concerning "Jungle Corns" if it proved out.

I notice it a lot in my Sunkissed hets. Not sure it really indicates much, let alone hybrid ancestry.
