KILLERBEE Het AXANTHIC x AXANTHIC PASTEL (SK)
Mid-July nearing the end of a banner season, finally hit on a long-term project to produce a Dreamsicle, hatching a pair! Also created Axanthic Killerbees, more BELs & several Butter-Daddy's. Lastly, went all-in on Blackhead pairings and hit the jackpot. Hatched -10- Blackhead morph variations, including my first Quad & multiple triples! Feel very fortunate, results below, enjoy!
BEL Het GHOST x BLACKHEAD-YELLOWBELLY het Ghost
CALICO-PASTEL x BLACKHEAD-YELLOWBELLY het Ghost
LAVENDAR-ALBINO p/h DREAMSICLE x DOUBLE Het DREAMSICLE
BUTTER DADDY #2 x BUTTER DADDY
MOJAVE-YELLOWBELLY Het Ghost x BLACKHEAD-PASTEL
IVORY x BLACKHEAD-PASTEL
Another run at a Dreamsicle, attempted seven years straight, no luck. Update: clutch hatched Jun-08, crushed the odds! Produced two Dreamsicles, boy & girl! Also 1.1 Lavender-Albino's Het for Dream & pair of 1.1 double hets. Took forever, but she delivered. What a first clutch for the season ... very fortunate.
Finally hit on an Axanthic Killerbee last season, trying again. Update: Clutch emerged by Jul-04, awesome results. Created -3- Axanthic Killerbee's, unfortunately one badly kinked. Also three Super Pastels, one Axanthic and pair of Hets. And great looking Killerbee Het. Thrilled with the results given eggs were tiny and the 1/8th shot at another Axanthic Killerbee.
Highly anticipated Blackhead pairing with potential for quad & triples. Update: Clutch emerged Jul-09 with o/s results! Hit my first Blackhead-Quad, couple Blackhead-triples, Blackhead-YB & other really pretty animals. Love the Blackheads ... :)
Another Blackhead pairing, Ivory to BH-Pastel. Update: although all -7- eggs were healthy & candled, lost entire clutch to mold ... first for me.
Blue-eyed Leucistic (Super Mojave) to the BH-YB. Update: Only one egg survived, but its a beauty! Hatched a Blackhead Ghost Mojave-yellowbelly boy! Huge surprise to confirm my BH-YB male was Het for Ghost.
FIREBEE x BLACKHEAD-PASTEL
Another interesting Blackhead pairing, Firebee to Blackhead-Pastel. Update: hatched six animals Jul-09 with great results. Produced a pair of stunning Blackhead SuperFlies & a Blackhead-Fire-Spider. Also some other great Fire morphs! Awesome clutch, happy with this one!
CALICO x BLACKHEAD-YELLOWBELLY het Ghost
First attempt pairing, virgin Mojave-YB to Blackhead-Pastel. Update: hatched four nice animals on Jun-10. Got a triple-blackhead, but he's puny, only 30gms!
Looks like my only dud of the season ... plenty of locks but appears she re-absorbed. No complaints given all the other successes so far.
And yet again, more Butter-Daddy's. Here I also mixed up pairing, both to BD-male & Butterbee. Update: cut eggs 7-14, can see -3- BELs & -3- spider variations ... maybe another plattybee? Final update, produced 2.1 BELs & 1.1 Butter Daddy Bee & a normal. Unfortunately I forgot to snap some pics of the clutch ... opps. Long season!
Another Blackhead multi-morph pairing ... veteran Calico female Update: clutch hatched Jun-30, got the triple, a beautiful Blackhead-Calico-YB & pair of Calico-YB's.
BUTTER DADDY #1 x BUTTER (m)
Creating more Butter-Daddy morphs, mixed pairing, both to Butter-Daddy & Butter males. Update: Hatched -7- healthy animals on Jul-02, including three Butter Daddy lessers.
Check out the video of this female back in '08, when I purchased her from Ralph Davis Reptiles ... this is what hooked me! (starts @ 2:35)
PINSTRIPE x BLACKHEAD-YELLOW BELLY het Ghost
Started pairing in April. My Pin girl (Hillary) is a veteran breeder & dropped a massive clutch last year. Update: shed Jul-13, has -5- locks on record, & weighs almost 4800gms. Final update, missed on the season.
