Need snake identification

A friend of mine was telling me about a snake that she saw on TV. She said it was white with a pear irridencant coloring throughout. She thought she heard the guy say it was a Rainbow something, but when i showed her pics of a Rainbow boa or Rainbow snake it wasn't either of those. She said it's about a foot and half long, and was at the San Diego zoo. Any help is appreciated, if you have a pic, that's even better. Thanks!!

Brian

Have you checked out the website for the San Diego Zoo??? Chances are they would know which species it is

All the zoo sites I've checked out lists the animals they keep and usually some info on them.

I checked out the site for the San Diego zoo and could not find any info on the types of reptiles they keep...

White, pearly? Was it a morph? Dunno of any snake which is pearly white as it's natural colour.

My bad, i found out later that it was not an actual zoo specimen, but one that the snake keeper had at his house...
