Hi John
I do believe there is a difference in breeding a special local form and seeking out odd looking animals even various forms of albinos and similar. That is why I allways use the strongest, best eating animals for further breeding and not a special color, even if they should look prettier. I quess that is why I have maneged to keep situla for so many generations. I have no intentions to help, what I use to call the "Freakshow" Allready now there are problems finding cornsnakes here without any hidden albino gens. I have tried 5 times to get pure Oketee, but always found out that they were mixed, when I bred them. That is a tendensy that will spread to many other species, and that isn`t something, that I like. Just attend a show and see how many albino forms there are there. They can be nice looking and are far easier to sell, but I just like to know that on that hillside in that county, I can find a similar animal to the ones I have. Maybe it is me, that is crasy, but that is how I like my hobby.
I think you misunderstood "Nonprofit" I have animals to pay the bills, that is just not situla. They are simply to cheap according to number of eggs and the effort spend to breed them.
The best event this year.........Hmmm a good question. I think that was the time spend to help Bert during his illness in Alabama, but if you are thinking of the animals, i think it was when I bred Eumeces fasciatus ( Yes the little skink outside in your garden )THAT was something special to me, even I do believe it could make people in USA shake their heads. Another thing that was very very special was when my chinese alligators made a choir and "sang" together for hours. At that time I had newer heard the female roar before. I wish I had a recorder for that.

Best wishes
Søe
