Default what happens when you breed 2motly boa

am assuming that motly is co dom

guessing you would get motlys
and normals
would any suppers be produced (normaly from dad and mum)?

heard that super motlys are produced parthenogenicaly form the mum
and tend to be haploid(half gene count)

are all supers haploid?
do you get male and female supers?

any inherant defects from breeding motlys together ?

thanks

put a M and a F motley together and you'll get motleys and supers..

the supers can be made either throu a breeding and taking the motley from both sides, or if its a F motley to a normal male say, then if you get a super its throu parthenogenesis aswell as motleys and normals..

hope that kind of makes sense:/ lol

I thought people had stopped breeding motleys together as most are born with quite obvious defects and don't survive long. I'm not into breeding myself but i thought this was a big no no.
