Bloodred Stripe or normal stripe?

Nanci mentioned to me on the devil that you can tell the difference with a good belly shot. So I took a few of Kato's belly to see what everyone thought.

Beth- don't take this the wrong way but the pics need to be sharp and clear...My guess, from these, is normal.

Oh, I am not! These are definately not my best work!
Had an uber excited 10 year old girl helping me, and the snake was squirmier than usual too.
I may just breed him to see.
There is only a 50% or less chance that he is homo, but his daddy is a definate blood.

I'd be interested to see how accurate that method is on adults.

I'm going to disagree with my friend and say that it could be bloodred. I should really sit down and photo the underside of my stripes and blood stripes so that you can see. All of my non-blood stripes have completely clean bellies, where yours and my bloods have that color bleed.

I expect not to see so much color surrounded the belly with stripes, I am really not sure

I agree with the others about it probably being a bloodred stripe. The substantial amount of "color bleeding" from the sides is very typical of bloodred phenotypes. Motleys and stripes tend to be far plainer and cleaner looking on their ventro-lateral area.

Just to throw the exception to the "rule" in there, this motley (first photo) has absolutely zero bloodred in her lineage and I can go back several generations with more clutches than I can count. I know the color bleed tends to look a little different in the bloodreds versus motleys and stripes, but to a newb, it might be confusing, especially when you compare it to the 4 bloodred ventrals I threw in for comparison.

Beth, yours does seem to have the usual bloodred bleed, but since I have no experience with motley/stripe bloodred combos (yet), good examples from breeders with experience would be the way to well as test breeding.

Susan, are all the red snakes bloodreds?
