Anerythristic corn snakes lack erythrin, the pigment that produces red and orange colors. They can be shades of gray, black, some white, and some yellow. Some can have a brownish hue (typically seen in males).
No history yet
The head pattern of Anery corns is the typical pattern, V-shaped behind the eyes with a wide band across the nose, but it can vary. The colors will usually be shades of gray, but may include black, white, or in some cases, brownish. The eyes will have a black pupil with gray, charcoal, or silver irises. At maturity, Anery corns will often exhibit a mustard yellow color along the sides of their face and neck, although not all of them will show this.
The body of Anery corns will match the colors of the head, with shades of gray, black, brownish, and/or some white. The saddles will be a darker color than the background color, with black borders outlining the saddles. Hatchlings will typically hatch out with stark black saddles and a nearly white background color. As they age, they typically lose the high contrast colors and will end up being primarily shades of gray.
The belly of Anery corns will show the typical black and white checkers.
The tail will match the body color and pattern.
