    NERD's 2012 Balltic hybrid (Retic x Royal)

    Balltic #1




    Balltic #2





    so i just found out about the existence of the Balltic, a Retic x Royal cross that was first produced by Kevin McCurley in ~2012. google images shows 2 different animals, both Balltic hybrids, but idk if they were both produced at NERD or not.

    i can't find any new OR old info on this, or if the snakes are even alive still. does anyone know anything about this animal or project? my google fu is coming up empty.

    The Reptile Report from 2012

    i don't want this thread to turn into an ethics debate, i just want to know how the snakes are doing or if there's anything to know or share that i might have missed. thank you!!!

    They look pretty cool. I like the way Bateaters look too

    I saw a snake that was apparently one on an IG post a while back, I'm not convinced it is but it didn't quite look Retic. I have it saved somewhere I'll post the link to it if I could find it.
    EDIT: found the post.

    interesting. that one isn't one of the babies in the photos above. something about the head pattern isn't like a retic, tho.

    Those are pretty awesome snakes, it always amazes me what animals can be crossed but I wonder if this pretty babe is still alive?
