So do I, and I am currently looking at what I would like to buy (Royal wise) next year, finances notwithstanding.

So far I am thinking of Pastel Jungles, Cinnamon, Spiders and possibly an albino or two.

Better start saving!!!

Ideally, i would like to breed my own blue-eyed leusitic, but will need platinums for that project.

I am swapping some corns tomorrow for a male graziani 07 so breed him to a few females, keep a female pastel back and sell the others to get cinnamon and spider maybe others : victory: Breed the pastels together then the superpastel to the spider ..... sweet Killer Bee :mf_dribble:

Would have to keep one pastel back to get superpastels, get so much out of them with other morphs. Just seen the Sterling Pastel ... I want one of they :mf_dribble: Super Pastel x Cinnamon.

another consideration, if breeding pastels to normals, is that offspring will be 50% pastels and 50% normals as pastel is co-dominant.

Pastel x Normal is 50/50, so i will breed him to a few normal females to start with, by the time that happens i would have probably bought a Spider male or Cinnamon and breed them to a few normals to as again you get 50/50. Then start mixing them up a little : victory:
Oh and i agree on the super cinnamon :mf_dribble:

as long as you have a few normal females to breed him with you should get a fair few pastels to sell.

Thats the beauty of co-dominant and dominant morphs, you don't need the female, you can breed your own :smile:

True. I am now looking at Pastel Royals. Found one for £380. but will have to see if I can stretch that much with christmas fast approaching and five kids to buy for!

I already have a pair of 07 Royals which are growing like weeds and will be looking for normal females at Rodbaston.

I am picking up some females at Rodbaston. Pm Iguanaman on here as i am getting a couple of females from him and i think he has some left.
As for the pastel, pm argentine boa as he can get lemon line pastel males for £180 on his Bob Clark run :smile:

Just had a quick look around and I really do prefer the Graziani pastels, but will think about the lemon line. argentine boa's bob clark order was for october so not sure if its too late for that one now. Need to make sure I want a lemon line pastel before i pm him.

Will pm iguanaman about the normal royals to see if he has any females left.

Cheers mate

I've been having a look around Bob Clark's site this afternoon, and spotted his Fire Balls which when bred together will produce a black-eyed leucistic. The Fire Balls are nice in their own right, but to have them produce a black eyed lucy is another very tempting factor for me.

I need to do some serious thinking and decide what I want to produce first before I start ordering any more snakes.

Would I be right in assuming that you can't have a 'het for spider' because it's a dominant gene, so it either is or it isn't?

Spider is a good choice doesn't really matter what you put it to you get something nice out :) Put it to a ghost and you get a very nice Honeybee :)

I've just bought my spider male and mojave male and some normal females from Captive bred, the females won't be ready to go next season, but they should grow like weeds for the one after. I've already landed a nice lemon pastel female, and a normal, so hoping for some normals, spiders, pastels or Bumblebees next season looking for some more big girls for the boys to share, so hopefully some Mojo's and normals from that. I'll probably end up keeping everything back and growning it on :) Good luck to everyone on the buying and breeding thing, it'll be interesting to see what we all end up with, apart from headaches from working out the hets etc at the end of it all.

Yes and no.

Yes, you can get an animal who is heterozygous for the Spider gene - they have only one copy and the other copy is "not-spider". So when you breed one to a Normal you cannot reasonably expect that ALL of the offspring will be Spiders unless you know you have a Homozygous Spider. Proving THAT, though, would be through breeding trials.

No, you don't get INVISIBLE "het spiders" - if it has a copy of the gene, it is visually Spider. If it doesn't look Spider, it doesn't carry the gene at all.

And I desperately wish I could afford to buy a couple of Mojaves myself.... lovely snakes, and the Leucistics are even better.
