Our GraniteÂ Phase Mex Mex are pretty and special. Our femaleÂ started out looking like normal phase animals of this species but has transitioned into a “black phase” Granite Mex Mex. As she matured the grayish ground color between the brick red bands turned from gray to black. This heavy black “tinting” really accentuates the red banding, producing a very high contrast animal. Our stock came out of Europe through South Mountain Reptiles.
