and, seeing as how body/tail kinks are common signs of severe inbreeding, your snake may be carrying other defective genes as well.
Kinks are actually most commonly due to improper temps or spikes during incubation/gestation, rather than genetic fault through "inbreeding", although this still can occur (not necessarily from inbreeding - just a bad pairing, related or not).
