A HUGE day for the Bogey Industry: The first double-recessive suboc to be offered for sale since Axanthic Blondes
Advertised at $3000, a female from the Euro line of albinos made herself a page in Bogey morph history.
This represents, IMHO, an easy investment oppurtunity for any morph pioneers out there. This also exemplifies the success people are having with these animals as captives and breeders. Any double-recessive animal made in captivity is an earmark for a highly keepable and breedable species.
Unlike the axanthic blondes, which came about by loads of luck, the double-recessive Albino Blonde is the result of selective breeding and loads of patience.
Many congratulations to Todd and Glenn of Y-Knot Reptiles, who produced three Euro amel blondes this season!
It turns out that the albino blonde along with the entire group of European hets sold on the same day that they were posted for sale. This is a really healthy sign for the Trans-Pecos Ratsnake market!

We added another albino and another axanthic blonde to our collection this week. Both are females, and are from the Dave Katz camp. They just got here on Wednesday morning.
Beautiful little animals; the axanthic blonde has nice light-centered blotches and the albino female is pretty too. We plan on using her to produce new variations of albinos like orange albinos and orange albino blondes.
Second Clutch of Triple Hets Hatched
Seven of the nine TH eggs have hatched and are now in their Vision tubs. #6 and #7 hatched this morning. All of the babies are fat and beautiful.
We have sexed the first clutch of three now that they have shed, and it appears that they are all males.
