    The Red Gene: 0.1

    This is a continuation of a thread in the genetics forum. I really don't really know much about this gene other than it was isolated from Blackhead, and does some (sometimes) neat things. Not a lot of information out there, and not a lot of people working with it as far as I know. That may tell me something right there, but I had to jump at the chance to work with it. I see potential, I just don't know if it'll pan out. Here are the shots as my observations so far.

    Full body shot. What strikes me here is the pretty much full body dorsal stripe. It has a lot of red blushing in it and it quite dark. Makes sense to me as it's related to Blackhead. No flames to speak of, and the alien heads are all wonky one way or another. Kind of looks normal, but then again not at all. I find the yellows along the belly line consistent all over the snake. You can definitely see a reddish hue to it as well.



    A detail shot of the back. The blacks and reds are evident here as is the red blushing.



    Belly shot. The yellows are evident on the belly as well. At least to me, and I hope I'm not reading too much into it. There is a large amount of flecking on the sides as the tradition to the belly area too. What stands out to me is the way the black areas wrap around the body onto the belly area. Someone said it reminded him of Leopard. I don't know, as I am not familiar with that gene, at least how it presents on the belly.



    We folks, that's it for now. Only thing to do is more research and then breed her in a year or so. If you have any information about this gene post it. I'm trying to find all I can about it.

    Thanks for looking,

    Dave

    Thanks. I just hope my observations are valid and I'm not reading too much into it. She's definitely different though.

    That would be an awesome pairing. I'm leasing toward Lopez here. Do you have a picture of the 1.0?

    Re: The Red Gene: 0.1

    No new info on this girl. So far either it's been dead ends, or people are just not responding to emails. Either way she's a keeper and is settling in nicely. Slammed a f/t at the first offering last night.

    Re: The Red Gene: 0.1

    Finally heard back from some people that know the gene well. The short story, and sorry if this is now repeated info....
    Originated as closely related to Blackhead and the Ringer gene. A lot of Blackheads actually carry it. This girl is 100% Red Gene. There are not a lot of people working with it at all. I think if I knew there names I could probably count them all on one hand. This is one of those finds that I truly feel blessed to have acquired. Now the big question, what do I do with it? Of course it comes down to "breed what you like". Not helpful when the most I've seen are Mojave and YB combos with this. Some lesser too, and a Calico. That's about it though. Sure, breed what you like if you know what it'll do. It's just going to be a shot in the dark I think. Lopez just might be it. Could end up with something crazy....or not.

    She looks good. I have a blackhead red gene female. I haven't decided if I'm going to pair her with my axanthic coral glow or axanthic champagne. There's a ball python group on FB called Blackhead breeders or something like that, you can see a lot of different combos there. Jennifer Chafin of Wicked Balls is where I got mine from. She's very nice! I'm sure she would answer any questions that you have.
