Default Queen bee royal python

Pretty new to breeding royals, I have a limited understanding of how the genes work.
Ive got a queen bed male and I'm looking for some ideas of who to pair him up with.

No one has answered this, so here is my two cents.

According to the World of Ball Pythons morph list, a queen bee has three gene pairs of interest:
Gene pair 1 = a spider gene paired with a normal gene.
Gene pair 2 = a lesser gene paired with a normal gene.
Gene pair 3 = a pastel gene paired with a normal gene.

You can pair this queen bee male with just about anything you want. Here is the expected result if you mate him with a normal:
12.5% 1/8 Normal (Wild Type, Classic)
12.5% 1/8 Spider
12.5% 1/8 Pastel
12.5% 1/8 Lesser (aka Lesser Platinum)
12.5% 1/8 Bumble Bee (Pastel Spider)
12.5% 1/8 Lesser Pastel
12.5% 1/8 Lesser Bee (lesser spider)
12.5% 1/8 Queen Bee (lesser pastel spider)

I would not mate this male to a spider or lesser female, but pastel or anything else you fancy are possibilities.

Good luck.

you should try useing this mate.
it helps alot with trying to find out what to pair with.
if you having got much money and are looking to maybe make a 4gene animal i suggest try breeding with a yellowbelly or even a fire if your luck if good then you will get a beautifull 4 gene animal, tho its a 1/16 chance but will still make alot of beautifull 3,2 and single gene royals to.
hope this helped.
Good luck with breeding.
