VPI Pink Panthers Caramel Albino Boas!!!! What is it about these guys??!!!

Here is a baby that was born from this pair in 2008! This guy just is to me fabulous looking! When the babies were born I didn't have a clue they would end up looking this good!

Based on what I know now, I can tell you that this litter will be awesome looking as big snakes!

100% het patternless female that was bred to patternless male. Is this small mark on her head a clue that she is a het? We are breeding two poss het females that have a small marking on the head to see if it could at least be a clue.

Quick phone camera pic of Burgundy Albino female x Pied male (maybe Leopard Pied) ovulation. What is this snake? We still don't know because we haven't hatched any homozygous babies! We have only bred her to non related males! We have Mojave het, Spot-nose het, and normal het ready to breed next year. I could have bred her back to one of those male hets, but decided to prolong everyone's guessing one more year and breed her to a pied!

How is it possible that this ruling has been made, and now here we are back again because entities didn't get what they wanted?

It is hard to believe that after the final rulemaking and listing of four species, years in the making,  Congressman Tom Rooney R FL with his bill HR 511 would feel he should negate and or overide the Department of Interior's decision on this issue in the complete opposite way one would expect.
