Hey everyone I've just recently notice the scales on my Male Brazilians Saddles (?) are changing color, they are lighting around the edges to the colors of his cresents is this normal or is something weird happening?

Its just along the very edges by the black border of his saddles that the scales are changing from the darker burnt orange color to the brighter neon orange of his cresents.

I don't know the lineage of this parents, well the breeder didn't know. So i'm asking because i'm not sure if this is normal, genetic or something dangerous.

Thanks everyone.

I've seen that before. Nothing wrong, just unpredicatable. These snakes can change color throughout their lives. (I've also seen where the center of the dorsal spot darkened up, leaving just a bright border of the old color.)
