how was the scaleless gene transferred to corn snakes?

I remember hearing that the rat snake gave the scaleless gene to corn snakes, by hybridizing then breeding it true.. I was curious if anyone had any literature on that.

First scaleless snake I ever saw was a Texas rat snake in the possession of Dr. Bernard Bechtel MANY moons ago. As to the gene showing up in corn snakes and how it got there, sorry, I have no historical information about that event.

I saw several at the Daytona show this year that i could have placed in with my high red scaleless Texas rats and you couldn't pick them out. i don't know if all are mixes. I have heard rumors there was a scaleless corn found in the wild. However I have seen many being sold at triple the price of Texas rats as corn morphs and they looked just like what we produce here year after year.
