Cinnamons are corn snake/emoryi rat snake crosses expressing hypomelanism.
Hypomelanism is a reduction of, but not complete absence of, black
This usually results in brighter remaining colors.
Motley is a recessive pattern trait as opposed to a color morph. The belly is usually patternless, the saddles tend to blend or stretch together down the back and there is basically an absence of side patterning.
When you add the Motley pattern to the Cinnamon colors you get a combination that is hard to beat.
These crosses are considered hybrids. Anyone wishing to work only with "pure" corn snakes would want to stay away from the corn snake/emoryi crosses.
