Yearling male VR strain. Leonis phase. This leonis is on its way to becoming a spectacular adult. In life the colors on this snake really pop. Very narrow black accentuates the tomato red saddles which are getting brighter with each shed. The background color is a clear yellow transitioning into orange on the lower parts. VR strains with this type juvenile coloration produce bi-colored adults with orange that tends to creep toward mid body as the animal matures.
