Q: Cornsnake Genetics (Normal x Silver Queen Ghost)
Posted By:


In Relation To:

[Normal- het anery, het amel, het hypo]

Just curious if anyone would know what the babies from a Normal female corn snake with no known hets and a male Silver Queen Ghost corn will most likely come out as? Thanks .

Assuming the Normal female has no hets, they'll come out as 100% normal het for Anery and Hypo (together, Ghost). The "Silverqueen" is a selectively bred line of Ghost, not a gene in itself, so it doesn't factor in here.

Since Anery is a such a common gene, it's a pretty good chance the female is het for it, which means you may end up with Aneries in the clutch. If she also proves het for Hypo, you'll end up with a mix of Normals, Aneries, Hypos, and Ghosts.

Hope this helps. Smile
