Wilds generally look 'snakier' and longer through the body than domesticated splendens.

It's fairly easy to pick the difference between true wild imbellis, splendens and smaragdina and a plakat, but when you add hybrids to the mix, it gets a lot harder to distinguish between what is pure and what isn't.

Oh my goodness, that imbellis is such a stunner! I'd take him over most domestic splendens any day.
