Big Snakeroom News: Step 1 on How to Make Snow
These two were caught in the act of procreating tonight! That's right! The Loma Alta albino male and the younger of our two adult axanthic blonde (silver blonde) females were seen copulating around 9 pm!
A clutch of triple heterozygous (albino x silver x blonde) offspring would be the result of this pairing.
Of coarse, snow and snow blonde subocs are the result of breeding triple hets together. Albino blondes, albinos, silvers, silver blondes and blondes are other possible outcomes.
We can't tell you how excited we are about this summer's pairings. This is going to be a lot of fun!

Including one pic of my only non-Bogertophis ophidian, an outstandingly beautiful male Lee Abbott Okeetee corn.
The little normally patterned silver female TPRS is growing quite nicely. I lifted her humid retreat to snap this photo. All of my subocs that are offered a humid retreat with damp sphagnum moss use it regularly.
