Kurt,
Good to see you on this forum! As for these boas, I totally agree that it's an exciting phenomena that's produced some really unique animals- and with the fact that it's been shown to pass to more generations is even more exciting! As for pairings to examine this further, I have three-four offspring from the same mother as your girl ready to go this season. With that being said, there are 2.2 of them and within the females, neither show anything "crazy" to them ( then again, neither did your girl when I sold her to you in 2011 ) , but with the males, one is a ghost motley jungle 66ph albino that looks "normal" while the other is the crazy one in my original post. I had planned on pairing him to a different female but after hearing from you with your "Frankenboa" and subsequent conversations about what could be going on, Ive been wondering if he needs to go back to his mother for one litter only and see what comes of it. I'm honestly still torn between mom ( "normal" looking morph ) paired to a "normal" looking morph VS paired to a "freak" boa... as to which would give more true results. My thought is while it makes sense to use the freak male to hopefully boost the chances of more freak boas, does that give support to the theory as much as if I used the "normal" looking one? Neither of these males have been proven yet either so theres that component to it as well. I do not know what contribution their genes have since I haven't bred them to an unrelated female. Also, they have actually came from different fathers in different litters ( same mom though). So.... lots of things to consider. Im open to any opinions.
