 Hybrid or normal?



She has the coloration of a green but pattern of a yellow. I’ve assumed her to be a hybrid but lately have been questioned on it. Could she be a pure? Thoughts?

Really? Even with her black and green coloring? You’re not the first to say that, I just haven’t seen yellows with her colors. Maybe you’re right though.

See if you can post a couple good head shots, top view and side view. Scalation is different between the two species so combined features are often quite noticeable. At first glance it looks possibly hybrid to me.

I agree with you. This snake looks like a hybrid to me even though you cant really see the head that clearly in your pics you can definitely see the colour difference. Most yellows that are " dark " like that are brownish honey mustard colour but that snake has some green in it for sure. ... Just my opinion But weather it is a hybrid or not you got yourself a cool fricken snake pal!

Thanks for the replies. I’ll try to get some close up pics but it’s tough with her. She has only bitten me a few times, but she is a challenge because she never stops moving and has a GREAT feeding response with anything near her head. I’m actually trying to sell her, a potential buyer told me she wasn’t a hybrid but I think he was just trying to get a lower price. Let me know if anyone is interested, i’m selling her for $250.

I would say that is 99.999% a hybrid. The post ocular stripes are that of the green. But the spots on the back and sides exhibit traits of both a green and yellow. Beautiful looking anaconda!
