Well, happy mistake. I remembered the tag being female, but when I got home to clean tonight, I looked and had it marked male. So I pulled it out, popped it, and low and behold it is in fact a male! This makes it much easier to prove out. I'll feed him well and breed him back to his grandmother and another bull that I've got that is 100% het for generic. That should prove or disprove what it is.

I've had so much cool stuff happen this season that I'm having a hard time keeping my thoughts straight. I've had a most incredible season, not only with the bulls, but with other species as well. Check this out:

1. The red-eyed ghost bulls were a surprise bonus.

2. The tiger patterned bull (oh yeah, a female ghost hatched out with nearly the same pattern!)

3. From an Anery Tessera to Ghost corn breeding, turns out they're both het for amel. I got two snow tesseras!

4. from anery tessera to anery stripe corn breeding, turns out not only is the tessera het for amel, it's also het for stripe! I got a couple Tessera Stripes.

5. from blood red corn to blood red corn, turns out they're both het for anery and amel. Got Fires (amel diffused) and Granites (anery difffused). I was hoping for the holy grail in the clutch to be an Avalanche (amel, anery, diffused) but it didn't happen. Not gonna complain.

6. From a five egg Het albino to Het albino ball python clutch, I got a pair of albinos

7. from a six egg clutch of het orange ghost to het orange ghost, I got a pair of orange ghosts.

I've got one more corn clutch to go and then a California King clutch. Don't know if I can take much more excitement. I took the last couple of years off (with the exception of breeding a couple of animals) because it was turning into more of a job than something I love. It was the best thing I could have done for myself. Though I didn't breed half of the animals I could have, I want to be careful not to get burnt out again. Gotta be selective but it's hard!
