New Bull Snake

I saw a post on FB Friday night for a young female bull snake, and picked her up Saturday. I was told she was ready to shed in the next day or two. Wrong, she shed a few hours after I placed her temporarily in a 4x2x2 on some damp cypress mulch. I was short on aspen and the commercial paper bedding I mix with it for the 40 breeder she was going into, so after dinner went to WalMart for supplies. Came home to find a fresh shed in several pieces, a fresh pile of poop in the corner, and no sign of the snake. I figured she had burrowed under the cypress, no big deal. Got the 40 breeder set up and then started searching through the cypress, no snake in the enclosure. Apparently there was just enough of a gap at the bottom corner where the glass doesn't quite meet the plywood side for her to squeeze out through. Found her a minute later, took a few pics, and put her into the tank with a well-secured screen top. Here she is, around 3', very calm disposition and great to handle. First pic taken w/out flash:

Flash on this one to show up her colors better:

Since I haven't taken any recent pics of the male fire bull I got him out for a few as well after she was secured. He just shed a few days ago, is a bit over 4' now, and much bulkier than the new girl.
All taken w/out flash, washed out his colors too much:

The tail end is really showing bright orange/red, he's a bit too active and large to show all in one or two pics:

The fire bull is a Kingsville red crossed with a Stillwater hypo. If these two are bred together, what % would the offspring be het for hypo?
9.4 Dominican red mountain boas, 1 Jungle cross carpet python, 1 IJ carpet python, 1 jungle carpet python, 1.1 BCI, 1 Dumeril's boa, 1 ATB, 1.1 climacophora, 1.1 Candoia, 1.1 prasina, 1.1 speckled kings, 1.0 bloodred, 0.2 Okeetee corn, 1 Woma python 1.1 black rat, 1.1 savu python 1 Boiga nigriceps, 3 Olive house snakes.
