PAIRINGS FOR 2011

In order that we have the time to properly care for each and every one of the hatchlings we produce each year,
we aim for eggs in our incubators for as much of the year as possible therefore some of the species we offer
may not necessarily be available during the traditional "breeding season" therefore please be sure to check back regularly.

Albino Ivory Leucistic Black Rat Snake


Note: Albino Leucistic hatchlings have proven that both parents are het Albino! The hatchlings all have a yellow tinge, just like their mother and in order to be able to distinguish these from standard white leucistics we will refer to them as ivory leucistics.

FAILED TO COMPLETE INCUBATION

Note: Unfortunately, as the eggs were laid on the dry substrate and not in a laying box we are not confident that they will complete incubation.
3 eggs went almost full term but died in the egg shortly before expected hatch date.

First Time Breeder

Dam: Rusty, House Snake

Predicted Offspring - Boaedon species

Sire: Cameron, Cape
House Snake het Albino


First Time Breeder

 



Cape House Snake (50% poss het Albino)


This pairing is done in an attempt to ascertain the subspecies of Rusty

Conclusion: Due to successful breeding with Cameron we have assumed for the time being that Rusty is a Cape until proven otherwise.
Some of the offspring appear to display a lot of red colouration which we intend to pursue at some point.

Sire: Captain, Normal het T- Albino Cape House Snake


Proven Breeder


Cape House Snake
Albino Cape House Snake

Note: Some of last year's hatchlings from this pairing
appear to have ruby or even black eyes, this may
indicate that the parents are het for T+ albino.
Further work needs to be done on this

FAILED TO COMPLETE INCUBATION


Proven Breeder

Dam: Lulu, True Striped House Snake

Predicted Offspring - Boaedon species

Sire: Captain, Cape House Snake het T- Albino

First Time Breeder



Lineatus x Capensis House Snake


Due to a failed attempt to find a suitable mate for Lulu for this season and the fact that she continually produces slugs having never been with a male we have decided to test the compatibility of the 2 subspecies, capensis and lineatus as it has previously been believed that these 2 subspecies are incompatible. Successful hatching has proved that they are in fact compatible.

Dam: Cora, Cape House Snake het Albino

First Time Breeder

Dam: Crista, Cape House Snake

Predicted Offspring - Boaedon capensis

Sire: Crosby, Cape House Snake


First Time Breeder


Cape House Snake

This pairing was done last season and following multiple matings being observed, no eggs or even slugs were produced. So far this season multiple matings have been observed but Crista again shows no signs of being gravid.


MATED


First Time Breeder

Dam: Champagne, Hypo
Cape House Snake

Predicted Offspring - Boaedon capensis

Sire: Truffle, Hypo
Cape House Snake


First Time Breeder



Hypomelanistic Cape House Snake


Whilst Champagne was acquired as a hypo, she is considerably different in colour to our other hypos which leads us to believe the possibility that she may in fact be a T+ Albino. This pairing has confirmed they are compatible.

Predicted Offspring - Boaedon species

Sire: Harry, Cape House Snake het "Hypo"


First Time Breeder


Patternless Green Phase House Snake
(50% poss het Albino)

"Hypo" Patternless Green Phase House Snake

This pairing is done in an attempt to ascertain the subspecies of Grace

Due to successful breeding of Grace with Harry we have assumed for the time being that she is a Patternless Green Phase Cape until proven otherwise.

The offspring from this pairing are all patternless and most are dark coloured as expected and a few are paler "Hypo Type". Further work will be done on this. This pairing also produced a set of twins.

HATCHED


First Time Breeder

Dam: Gayle, Green Phase
House Snake

Predicted Offspring - Boaedon species

Sire: Gilbert, Green Phase
House Snake


First Time Breeder


3 different colours of Patternless "Green" Capes
(Normal, Hypo-type, Albino-type)

Note: Unfortunately, many of Gayle/Gilbert's hatchlings were badly kinked and almost all of the clutch (including the single Albino-type) had to be euthanised, as the clutch was incubated in one of our secondary incubators we are hopeful that this was an incubation problem and not a genetic one. More clutches are now incubating in our primary incubator which will hopefully prove more successful although many of the eggs seem unable to go full term.

Predicted Offspring - Pantherophis Guttatus

Sire: Gavin, Ghost het Amel/Stripe

Anerythristic het Hypo (66% ph Amel, 50% ph Stripe)
Ghost (66% ph Amel, 50% ph Stripe)
Ghost Aztec (66% ph Amel, 50% ph Stripe)
Snow het OR homo Hypo (50% ph Stripe)

As none of Bermuda's previous hatchling had any significant signs of aztec/zig zag, we are pairing her up with one of her offspring in an effort to reproduce her beautiful pattern.
Update: As before, there was no significant zigzag pattern in the offspring with the exception of 1 ghost female from the 2nd clutch whose pattern is very much like her mother.

First Time Breeder



1/2 Amelanistic (het Diffused, Caramel, Motley)
1/2 Ultramel (het Diffused, Caramel, Motley)


If Wade is confirmed as het for Caramel,
we would expect to see Butter and Goldust offspring too.

As this clutch contained no Butter or Goldust it looks likely that Wade is not het Caramel!

Granite Stripe het hypo (
66% ph Amel)
Ghost Diffused het Stripe (66% ph Amel)
Ghost Diffused Stripe (66%ph Amel)

HATCHED
Update: Wilmah is confirmed to be het hypo due to Ghost Diffused, Ghost Diffused Stripe and Hypo Diffused Stripe hatchlings. However, there have been no amel based hatchlings therefore we believe at least one of the parents (most likely Wilmah) may not be het Amel.

FAILED TO COMPLETE INCUBATION

This is the second year in a row that Lyla has laid small, not particularly good eggs and a great number of slugs. We have therefore made the unfortunate decision to retire her from our breeding program.

Note: Miami Motley hatchlings have proven that Miami is het for Motley and in view of this and the fact that it was only a small clutch, we have decided that we will not be selling any female Miami/Miami Motley this season.

Hypo Motley, Hypo Stripe, Anery Stripe

A few of Nina's hatchlings last year were much paler/brighter than the rest, leading us to believe that she could be het or even visually hypo. This breeding could confirm this.

Update: Hypo Motley hatchlings have confirmed that Nina is at least het Hypo. Snow Motley and Snow Stripe hatchlings have confirmed that Nina is also het Anery and Stripe. Normal Motley hatchlings have proved that at least one of the parents is only het hypo. Some of the Amel and Snow hatchlings may be Hypo Amel and Hypo Snow.
