Yes, hypomelanism is a simple recessive trait in Honduran milksnakes.

SerpentMan,
Are you the person that tried to contact me with this question a couple of weeks ago? I replied to you but my email was returned saying that your email address was invalid.

To answer your question, hypomelanism is simple recessive in milksnakes. These hets come from a hypo x het. Typically this cross would result in approximately 50% hypo and 50% hets. I had two clutches of these this year. In one clutch, only 25% were hypos (2/8), and in another clutch 80% were hypos (4/5)

I waited and received no reply on your advertisment (I am sure I messed up on my E-mail) will send you my E-mail again.
I am still interested in these if you still have them.

Also, since I never purchased from you I did a Inquiry on your Business. I found that you are honest!
