That's awesome news Rusty! I'm so happy that your hets proved out and now you can at least do selective breedings knowing exactly what you are working with.

It is odd how you've not been hitting the "odds" with the Anacondas. It could be just bad luck or it would be something else at play on the genetic side, something effecting the lining up or passing of genes when coupled with your Axanthic female or perhaps the Amel genes on both sides.

I've been interested in trying to understand why non-het Anacondas generally have solid black bellies but when hybridized with Amel genes, that the all black belly can be resumed back into displaying the yellowing we usually see in checkered bellied animals.

What do the bellies look like on your Anacondas, is there any deviation from the typical black belly often associated with Anacondas?

There's so much we, as keepers, really don't know about how the actual genetics are going to ultimately play out, especially when combining them together, in most morphs. Sure, we have a basic understanding of Dominant/Recessive and Codominant/Incomplete Dominant traits, but there is so much more to learn and understand than just those types of traits alone.

These are definitely exciting times for hognose and I am so happy for you Rusty that your pairings are finally starting to show some fruition!
