First off, congrats again on the litter and hitting on the anery gene! That adult is a beautiful animal too!


For what to do next, obviously where you decide to go is your choice, whatever you decide to do it's definitely going to be a long time coming to really prove out what is what here. Personally, I still think proving it against at least the most common line out there would be a good idea and important. The ball python world is a mess in a bunch of different places because of people finding something, screaming new morph, naming it their own and putting it out there without actually proving what it was. I think it's just as important to prove what it is, as to prove what it's not...still speaking of the bp world, there are different hypo lines which are visually identical, but not compatible for example. This has happened with other gene's that have shown up too through the years, back in the mid 90's I was shocked when I bred a pair of lavendar albino cal kings and got a whole clutch of black and yellow normal appearing babies. If I were a buyer, I'm going to want to know what line I'm getting into, how common it is, and what it is/isn't compatible with. On the flip side, there are a number of gene's out there with multiple names because of two different people getting hold of one and not taking the time to work through that it wasn't a gene that was already known. I know we're not talking bp's or cal kings, but proving out genetics is still just the same and it's not hard to look at the bp world and see what a mess things are because of people rushing to name something as their own new morph and not taking the time to be more responsible about figuring out what they have first.

I'm thrilled for you that you hit on anerys and I don't think anyone here is questioning that that's what they are now. Exciting stuff! What I do question, is what you believe may be a pastel or something else when I feel like it could be easily and more likely explained simply by natural variability. I wouldn't be surprised either if it turns out that the odd ones you're seeing are something along the lines of visual hets.

Whatever you decide to do with it, good luck and I hope you have a lot of fun out of it. I'll be looking forward to seeing how things progress and what the little ones grow into!

Charlie
