motley and super-motley boas
OK, so this is probably going to sound like a dumb question, but I'm trying to learn about all of the genetics of boa constrictors because sometime in the near future I would love to start a breeding project or two of my own. I am really enthusiastic about this and I'm trying to figure out what project I want to start first.
I was thinking about working with anerythristic boas, maybe breed with an albino and somewhere along the line make a snow. That all makes sense to me, but when I was looking through your gallery, I saw something I have never seen or heard of before--the super-motley!!! Needless to say I now have a new favorite! Getting to my question now... how would I go about making one?
BY THE WAY--I LOOOVE YOUR CARAMEL ALBINOS! Thanks, Chris
The super-motley is the blackest of all boas, absolutely an incredible snake and definitely a favorite of ours, too.
A super-motley (solid black) is a motley bred to a motley. The cross produces 25% normal babies, 50% motley babies, and 25% super-motley babies.
And the miracles don't stop with the super motley! A hypo/super-motley (solid orange) is a hypo/motley bred to a motley. An albino/super-motley (solid patternless white with dark red eyes) is made by breeding a het-albino/motley to another het-albino/motley. DGB
