I was directed to this post earlier myself, and it is something I am happy I saw. Several years ago I had a boa pop up in a litter that I referred to as "granite-sided" or "patternless sided" on various forums and Facebook groups. It went by with little notice, but it is a boa that I have held back and plan to breed at some point into various morphs as I strongly believe it to be a heritable condition (I am a geneticist working on various reptile related projects in my lab, but also a boa breeder of 20 years, so I feel that I have some justification for my belief). Anyway, my animal is identical to the non-hypo granite sided posted. Mine are Pure Nicaraguan in origin and came from two non-granite sided animals. After seeing the hypo super, I am certainly very motivated to get this project going. Its just been ticking over in recent years with no real drive from me as I have other projects I consider more important. It will be interesting to see if mine are also heritable and have a super form. Here are some pictures:
