Here are some pics of the babies from the pair of PE line breeding. They are all striped, of the 7 eggs-all 7 babies are striped. The question is what does breeding one of the stripes to a normal do? I have the male in with a normally patterned albino-don't know if I am getting eggs yet, but at some point hopefully we can see if these stripes are a dominant stripe or a codominant stripe. I was very happy to see that no normally patterned babies hatched out of the 7 eggs. Theoretically if the stripes were codominant (not supers) and you bred them, you would expect some that looked like the parents, some normal, and some that were "supers." This pair may actually be "supers" that were selected from babies from the original wc striped pair. If that is so, you would expect that the babies would all look like the parents-all supers, and they do. Normally in striped x striped, I would expect the majority of the babies to be striped, but at least some normals. Time will tell! These should be beautiful babies when they color up-the parents are both beautiful red snakes!striped red blood pythons PE line ch 0608striped red blood pythons PE line ch 0608
