Others have made good posts, and have been completely respectable, combined with many, many years of experience, and a realistic outlook on the whole picture.

If you are wanting to breed, I would at first say congratulations! It is a very rewarding and totally exciting experience, and I commend you for it!!

And speaking of rewarding, the rewards of creating hybrids and actual, real snakes ( in regards to an actual species being propagated ) is like comparing a 99 cent frozen pizza to a killer, homemade pizza or one that comes from an exceptional restaurant. The product, quality that arises from the hard work, and the experience, all go together. Hybrids do absolutely nothing positive for the herp hobby, except for a feeling of excitement, which, like other human feelings, can linger about and then dissipate. Short lived and does not create other, pure snakes for the species to survive in captivity.

You know that excitement you are feeling now? Why not help a new herper in the hobby, in the future who wants to breed, enjoy exactly what you are enjoying, which is the newfound excitment and joy of having actual, real snakes, and not frankensnakes? Genetic pollution in snake lines is nothing to be proud of, and someone always ends up getting shafted, when they think they are getting something pure, and then, after the eggs start to hatch, they are sorely let down.

All I am saying is consider the big picture of creating jungle corns, vs. creating the pure goodness of allmighty corns and kings. It is a feeling like no other, and something you can be proud of yourself in accomplishing, when you look back years later.

There are so many cool morphs of corns and Cal kings, it is hard to even consider where to start!!

All my opinion, my friend.
