Well, at least one female cooperated on the boa watch and last night I found a great litter from one of our Pink Panther VPI Caramel albino female x super ghost male. She had 19 perfect babies, 1 slug, and 2 doa babies. I'm not sure how that happened, but I did notice that they had no membranes around them at all, so I suspect they broke out of their sacs inside the mom, which apparently is not a good idea! Mom looks great and she is my number one priority.
There are some really nice babies and I think for sure there are our first "quadruple" hets, being pink panther, orange tail, 100% het caramel albino, 100% anery. Now a pair of these babies can make a lot of cool animals!! Too many to list, but we can see in 3-4 years!!
These were really important in anticipation of the next litter caramel albino x Sharp albino due the first week of June. Now all of these things are pieces of the puzzle and as I get closer to that litter's due date I think I want to take a poll of what people think the result will be. So far my unofficial poll through conversations with a few boa breeders is running 50/50, that this pairing will make double het "normals" or "something new!"
Here is a close-up of one of the babies-looks like one of Jeff Ronne's snakes snuck in there-is this a quadruple het? We need these babies to shed and go from there!
