I know of some Olives that had the same issue, the parents produced the same problem more than once so must or at least was likely to have been hereditary rather than anything else.

Sorry Herpingmad but i just had to ask.
When stevie died did you happen to do an autopsy to see if the skull had formed without the eyesockets as well? It would be interesting to see if the snake did have part of the eyes formed with the scales growing over, or if the skull was solid with no chance at all of eyes.

The most venomous snake in the world is the one that just bit you... Unless its a python.

Hi Mon, I didn't do an autopsy myself.  I gave it to Mitch Ladyman who was keen to look at it as he had done some research on the blind tiger snakes of Carnac Island.  I don't know if he ever got as far as autopsying it though.
