    Re: Show me your (adult and baby) blue-eyed lucies!

    As promised, here is Arya after her shed. She does have a bit of a dorsal stripe, but it's more of a light pink, not yellow. Very possible it yellows with age.

I wasnít happy at all but decided her temperament was so sweet that it was meant to be. She has cleaned up more and more every couple months. Im very happy now with her whole package. She is actually my wifeís now and thats cool because they are both more each otherís speed.

    That's so interesting, and it sounds like things worked out really well for all of you, haha. Also, that's awesome that your wife enjoys the reptile hobby with you; I'm not sure if any of my family members would be quite up to the task of "inheriting" my BP yet!

    Thanks so much for these great photos, Arya's looking spectacular! And you're right, that dorsal stripe is definitely soft pink rather than yellow. I guess only time will tell if the stripe will gradually turn yellow, stay pink, or just fade away entirely, but honestly, as it is right now, it actually looks quite pretty.

    Re: Show me your (adult and baby) blue-eyed lucies!

    I have a super lesser with what i am guessing -does- have other genes at play, as she has gone rather yellow. Shes at 356 grams, when i got her at 75g she was pure white.
    Breeder said she might have pinstripe, spider, pastel or black pastel in there. Anyways just wanted to submit my data lol.

    Also i haven't seen anyone mention white weddings (spider pied). If you get one with no head markings, i have heard that is the cleanest purest white you can get, possible downside that it will not be a blue eye lucy as you may only be searching for that.

    Oooh, very interesting! The yellow on her seems to have a very soft, diffuse distribution along her body rather than a dorsal stripe or scattered dorsal patches. As for the Spider Pied, I actually hadn't seen any White Weddings before. Just looked them up, and wow, that is a VERY spotless white indeed, though you're right that they don't get the blue eyes anymore.

    Another contributing gene to add to the list of considerations is Bamboo, which also seems to yield the BEL "look" when combined with Mojave, Lesser, or Russo, though again with a lot of variation when it comes to how much visible "residual" pattern still shows through. (I've recently had my eye on a Bamboo Mojave myself, so if I do cave and end up getting him, I will also start adding to this database, haha.)

    Bamboo is very interesting how it interacts with other bel complex morphs. Most of the combos i have seen have patterning on them, but no yellows. Granted i haven't seen adult ones, so maybe they do. Bamboo bels tend to be more expensive than the usual, but if money isn't a problem, then you should get what you like!

    Thanks for the info! Definitely curious about what bamboo adds to the mix, and I don't actually have any objection to some faint patterning - the solid white is beautiful in one way, while having some lacy "phantom" pattern can also look pretty nifty. I know what you mean about the price difference though, and the reason why I'm considering this Bamboo Mojave in particular is because it'd be coming from a breeder I trust and have purchased from before, and who is willing to work with me in terms of price.

    Well, time to add my new boy to this thread! I didn't end up getting the Bamboo Mojave, but I'm not 100% sure whether this little guy is a Super Butter or Butter Mojave. As far as parentage goes, according to the breeder, the mother is single-gene Butter and the father is Pewter Mojave Butter, and that pairing yields a few different combos that would all visually present as BELs. At any rate, he's really darn cute, so I'm happy with him regardless.

    Congrats on your bel! Keep a record of how or if his color changes as he grows, i would be interested to see!

    Very cute! I love the BELs as well. I donít know the mix of my boy, so it will be interesting to see if he develops any color/pattern as he grows.
