You know, in 2008 I bred a butter mot to a bloodred in hopes of some day producing sulfurs.

Just asking for a sulfur mot just seemed like way too much to ask for. I figured that I would have to get some animals that where homozygous for 3 genes and 66% het for the fourth and breed them together in another generation to even have any kind of a chance to hit those odds.

This was quite a shocker!!!!

I kind of feel like I've burned up my luck for this season. I can't ask....or even hope that this female fire mot is het caramel.

But it'd be nice.

She was the very last egg to hatch. Before I saw her I figured that i would breed that male sulfur mot to butter mots and gold dust mots to produce 3 gene animals het bloodred and then go after the 1 in 4 odds in another generation. BUT if she is het caramel, then I can produce sulfur mots in one generation instead of two. And with 1 in 2 odds.

That's a lot to ask for or hope for.

Hitting the extreme 1 in 256 odds on this snake changes everything for me.
