Might be a hybred?

Tonks came from a reptile show from a couple of young people who had a table with an eclectic mix of reptiles and inverts.
I thought she was red, they didn't say different, they were anxious to sell and...
Anyway, I think she might be a hybred. She has a dark face.

And a lot of red and black in her pattern

What do you'all think?

From my relatively uneducated browsing over the years (take with a grain of salt), red females can be darker with near black bands and brick reds sprinked with small amounts of white they can also range to typical brighter red tones. her coloring does not look unusual to me. It is the males which usually can get the brighter more unbroken red colors. I could be wrong though, hybrids display in vast range of colors so she could be a hybrid.

She reminds me a lot of one of Rose City's red breeders, Ryder. She's very pretty!

Ryder is pretty. I thought Blues were the only type that have black on their nose and head. Honestly Tonks is fine no matter what her breeding.
Thank you for the link and your answer.
