|VRHD - Summer Phase
Subadult. This young animal is precocious in its color development and is destined to be a seriously beautiful adult. Just a hint of dark pigment is dusted across the nuchal area. VRHDs nearly always lack discernible patterns on the head with cheeks often showing a pink flush. The pattern elements are in the normal places on this animal but they have become increasingly more indistinct as the snake approaches maturity.
