The first breeding of andesiana in the country was done by Steve Hammack of the Dallas Zoo. They had 3.2 animals from Colombia and bred them for the first time in 1987. In 1991, they made a few specimens available to the public, which is where the current stock all comes from. Bill Lamar claims to have brought back all founding stock of the animals now in the country.

The original juvenile andesiana was a male collected at an elevation of 2000 meters in Colombia in Aug. of 1978. The zoo later received a female in 1981, but she later died in 1984 shortly after having shedding complications. This same year (July of 1984), they received another female alonf with two males. This comprised the above 3.2 breeding group from animals collected around Cali, Colombia.

Your aberrant (and Scott's) originate from this same founding stock that Steve was working with at the zoo that had a strong predisposition for producing odd anomalies.

Great score man!!
