Amel buf Male and his mother. Both are exhibiting missing head scales. His missing scale was not apparent until about 4 months old. This is somewhat common among amel corn snakes. That being said, I haven't seen it outside of amels. Anyone know of any other corns with missing head scales? No, this is not "het" scaleless or a hot new mutation. Although it is not exactly more desirable; it is interesting to explore how it is inherited.
