Snake Subpecies

Hello,

I am researching and reading in reptile forums, websites, blogs for 3-4 years. The majority of the websites are promoting the morphs of each species. In my opinion natural colors are the most beautiful snakes.

I had the idea of creating a small article for subspecies ( up to now for boa constrictor and carpet pythons).

Whoever has the knowledge, if i made any mistake please let me know. I tried to make it as simple as possible.

Boa Subspecies
Carpet Python Subspecies

Re: Snake Subpecies

Your picture for the southern carpet looks more like a coastal and the coastal is an irian jaya

Re: Snake Subpecies

Genus is capitalized while species and sub-species is not.

Don't get me wrong but all you are saying is that i should replace subspecies with sub-species?

I am not sure i understood what you are trying to say.

No, you have the capitalization wrong. For example "Morelia Spilota Imbricata" should be "Morelia spilota imbricata"

Re: Snake Subpecies

The carpet python being represented under harrisoni does not look IJ, or atleast not pure IJ. It looks like a coastal or a coastal cross. This is what an actual IJ looks like.




I have never seen an IJ with a head pattern like the one shown there.

I made the change for IJ. Again i want to thank you all for your corrections. if you have any other proposal for similar articles let me know. I am thinking of creating a sand boa subspecies article now (snakebytestv helped to this).
