    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

    Re: NERD's 2012 Balltic hybrid (Retic x Royal)

    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.

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

    wow! looks awesome! looks like there's GC in there. i like how it has eyes stripes. anyways i didn't realize it was already done and it's called the Balltic. all this time, i was googling "Ballticulated Python" lol.

    that IG pix is tagged NERD (and apparently taken there) and it's from Dec '17. it looks like it's reached adult colors and size. i think it's the first baby. u can see the top and left side profile, but u cannot see the right side. the IG adult pix is the right side profile and there's a black dot under the right eye. could be baby #1 as we don't have pix of it's right.

    i was pretty convinced that snake on IG was the first Balltic picture i posted, but i couldn't actually confirm it through the photo so i assumed it wasn't. i wonder if i can ask NERD about it? do you think they'll respond to an email? LOL.

    i'm just really heckin' curious about these snakes!

    EDIT: where u been, Ax?! we missed u
