Talking Stunning New Mexican Milk

I've been looking for a mate for my female Mexican milk snake Rosita. She's exceptionally nice with bright, clean banding. Her yellow bands are almost orange.

And then I found *this* guy. Santiago is a Freer, TX locality Mexican milk with traffic cone orange bands. Holy cow! (First 2 photos are by his breeder, Legacy Reptiles.)





He's in shed at the moment but even so you can see an iridescent flash in his black banding. I'll get another pic when he has his new "paint job."



Here's Rosita (photos by Dan Eby).

Re: Stunning New Mexican Milk

Nice. Very nice. Milks are noticeable by their absence from my collection and I'd love a pair...

Re: Stunning New Mexican Milk

Boy, they both are stunning! Grats. What is the difference in ages between them? Santiago's coloration is very strong. Nice saturation.

Re: Stunning New Mexican Milk

Rosita is a 2015 model. I *think* she'll be ready to breed next year. She's as long as he is at about 4 feet but not as beefy yet. Those photos are older.

Santiago is a 2013 model and already proven so he's ready to go when she is.
