Hello,

I posted most of this to an older post asking about the Tokay's from NERDS. I figure I'll repeat it here since it seems relevant.

Hello,

Actually, NERD sold the entire collection last year. I found this out when I tried to purchase some of his better morphs. The rumors suggest that up until then, they were snapping up most of the morphs for that breeding project.

The rumors also suggest that they were not having very good luck breeding which was blamed on plastic enclosures and poor ventilation. What I cannot seem to confirm is whether the collection stayed stateside, or went overseas.

There are a couple of small breeders working with granite, leucistic and various normals which can be found here on Kingsnake from time to time. Also, a few wild caught patternless olive greens, and a couple more common morphs show up as well.

My own Tokay project is just beginning with all wild caught animals which includes 6 patternless olive green pairs, 4 calico Pairs, 3 leucistic pairs, 2 pied pairs, 2 granite pairs, 1 super red pair and several mixed pairs with high reds, carmels, leucistics and normal pairs with yellow spots and normals with orange spots.

I'm working to prove out several genetic lines and this will take a couple of years I suspect. NERD worked their project for over 5 years to get to some of the great animals they had.

Only time will tell.

Good luck and all the best,
