    Photo #249

    WT ('Normal') with Brazilian Agate.

    Breeders Note:
    My clutch #1 finished hatching.
    Parents: Pastel/VPI Axanthic/Het Hypo x Het VPI Axanthic/Het Hypo
    8 eggs/8 hatchlings

    The Outcome:
    4 Pastels (Hets)
    2 WTs (Hets)
    1 Hypo (Het)
    1 Pastel Axanthic

    With a 50% chance of Axanthic, and only 1/8 produced...the probability of this happening (with a simple recessive) is about 1/32.
    I bring it up because I have seen historically poor outcomes on my VPI Axanthic intercrosses (not backcrosses).
    Just saying...

    Re: Snakes and Stones

    Haven't had much time to work on photos recently.

    I checked my Clutch #7 today and I was so tired it took me a few minutes to figure out why I had a 'white' head showing.
    (Pairing: Fire/Het Clown X Pastel/Het Clown)

    Of course my good luck did not hold out.
    My Clutch#11 was/is almost completely consumed by mold.

    I collected Clutch#12 at the same time after Clutch #11 and it is in the same incubator in mint condition...Which makes me suspect the eggs from #11 were bad from the start....
    This marks the first entire ball python clutch I have lost in many years.

    Well you got some real cuties, in spite of your bad luck with the other clutch. It happens... Congratulations for the ones you DID get.

    Re: Snakes and Stones

    I was starting to overthink last night that maybe that 'white head' could be some hidden gene I had missed.
    Thankfully it was not the case today.

    When I looked at the pictures of the eggs, I was searching for which one was a stone.

    Very cute hatchlings!

    Thank you, Thank you! The odd gods denied many of my axanthic crosses this year, but, gave me many more clowns than expected.

    Brazilian Agate with a Mojave Het Ghost.
    The stone has many little irregularities in the patterning which I initially tried to grind out, but, those little squiggle lines are in the stone itself.

    Some more local rocks and a 'WT'.
    I put 'WT' in quotes because any genes with less than a 50% probability I don't keep track of...
