California Herpetologist Unveils Rare Reticulated Python Known for Its Distinctive Coloration
Jay Brewer, a herpetologist in California, revealed on his Instagram page footage of one of the rarest and strangest black snakes, famous for their unique rainbow color reflections when exposed to sunlight.
Brewer repeatedly shared videos of the snake on his page, which was admired by viewers and followers.
In a statement to CNN, Brewer confirmed that it is not poisonous and that it is admired by visitors and celebrities alike because of its strange color.
This rare and unique snake was born nine years ago in the American Reptile Zoo. It acquired its uniqueness due to two specific types of genes, a “selective breed that is produced by breeding two different species together to make this color.”
