    Re: Black-headed python progression thread

    So I got a message from a fellow bhp breeder near me who had to downsize a bit. He knew we were planning on working with the yellowjacket line and made me an offer on a 2015 female produced by Derek Roddy that I could not refuse. Here is a pic provided by Brandon. She is in shed currently and it's a bit cold outside so I will get some better ones later on down the road.

    Thank you! It is definitely a work in progress and even with all the anticipation and research done prior to diving in we are still learning day by day. There is a lot to be said for certain lines and genetics. Some traits are line bred (yellowjacket for example) some dominant/recessive genes (axlanthic and tiger) and some local specific looks (pure western being the most desired yet hardest to come by). All of this goes into the decisions on pairings so that we can produce clean attractive animals that will be desirable and improve on what is considered "U.S. lines" rather than just breed for the sake of breeding.
    With all that said or plan thus far is to pair our new female to our current male. Both are a mix of Lazik/Goergen lines and share similar color/contrast. If everything goes as planned we may actually be able to pair as early as this Dec. The goal with this line is to produce high yellow/high contrast animals.
    Our first female however is a true gem. She is pure Lazik western blood which is very difficult to come by. Preserving this is going to be a priority for us. Fortunately due to the time it takes females to reach sexual maturity compared to males mean time is on our side so we will be very selective in finding her future mate.
    Anyhow, I will try to get somenupdated pics as wether permits.

    I applaud your efforts, patience, and desire to continue quality lines instead of saturating the market with anything you can produce. The BHP takes that extended time with maturity compared to other snakes and that takes a lot of self control by a responsible breeder.

    I'm looking to add a (normal/regular/plain ole LOL) BHP to my collection with no interest in breeding. Although I would love an amazing specimen, I would hate for all that time and effort to "go to waste in a collection and not a breeding program."

    In addition, there isn't a ton of information out there about them and that also makes it exciting for me to care and raise one. Not to mention they truly are an amazing snake; temperament, pattern, etc...

    I'll keep an eye out for more stuff from Stinkers, Inc too LOL
