BLACKHEAD SUPERFLY X BLACKHEAD QUAD
New pairing, Blackhead Superfly virgin girl to my Blackhead QUAD. Multiple locks but she never went gravid ... this was my one disappointment this season, only shot at making Super BH's. Will try again next year.
BLACKHEAD X CORAL GLOW ENCHI SPIDER
Another new pairing, proven Blackhead girl to new Coral Glow male. She's had two locks with him in the first month ... this girl is definitely gravid, very swollen!
SUPER PASTEL YELLOWBELLY X ASPHALT ENCHI PASTEL
Another first year girl, fast-growing Super Pastel YB to the Asphalt male. Not likely this year, but I hit on 3/4 Asphalt pairings, so can't complain!
BUTTER-DADDY #2 X BUTTER LEOPARD Het CLOWN
Clutch hatched 6/13, produced pair of Butter-daddy Leopards, Butter Leopard, BEL & couple Het Plattys.
LAVENDAR ALBINO Het DREAMSICLE X DOUBLE Het DREAMSICLE
Clutch hatched 6/22, no Dreamsicle, but very bright, pretty Lavendar Albino PH Dream male.
IVORY X ASPHALT ENCHI PASTEL
Clutch hatched 5/24 ... beautiful pair of Mardi Gras females, couple Enchi-YB's, Enchi-Asphalt & a Yellow Belly.
BLADE FIRE JUNGLE WOMA LEOPARD P/H CLOWN X
BUTTER LEOPARD Het CLOWN
Despite many locks her weight is not good, I project she won't go this season.
BEL GHOST X BLACKHEAD YELLOWBELLY Het GHOST
One of my more highly anticipated clutches, completed hatching on 7/23. We nailed this one, 5/7 were Ghost, producing three awesome Ghost-Blackhead-Mojave-Yellowbelly's! Interestingly I proved this male for Ghost three years ago, but after several misfires, this year was the first full clutch for the pair. Good reminder in this business, patience is a virtue ... very excited about this clutch, awesome animals!
BUTTERPIN X CORAL GLOW ENCHI SPIDER
Largest clutch hatched 6/20, combo produced some awesome Coral Glow variations, very pretty animals!
BUTTER DADDY SPINNER X BUTTER LEOPARD Het CLOWN
Another new pairing, virgin Butter Daddy Spinner girl has grown quickly. Multiple locks, had decent but not happening. Will try her again next year.
MOJAVE YELLOWBELLY Het GHOST X ASPHALT ENCHI PASTEL
Mojave Yellowbelly dropped two healthy eggs on 5/5, that hatched 7/11. Missed on the Freeway but cool looking Mojave Enchi.
CALICO X BLACKHEAD QUAD
Only one of the two eggs hatched on 7/1, producing a Calico male.
BLACKHEAD YELLOWBELLY X ASPHALT ENCHI PASTEL
Clutch hatched 6/20, highlights include Mardi Gras, Freeway & pair of Blackhead Asphalts, one Enchi-Pastel, the other Pastel.
SPOTNOSE Het CLOWN X BUTTER LEOPARD Het CLOWN
All seven eggs hatched by 7/28. No Clowns which was a surprise, but still produced several interesting animals. Love that Leopard Spotnose!
BUTTER-DADDY #1 X BUTTER LEOPARD Het CLOWN
All seven eggs hatched on 7/15.
LAVENDAR ALBINO P/H DREAMSICLE X DOUBLE Het DREAMSICLE
Offspring female from my Dreamsicle clutch dropped three eggs, but only one hatched on 7/5. It was a Lavendar Het, so disappointed here. WIll give her a go next season, she's a very healthy female.
AXANTHIC KILLERBEE X AXANTHIC LESSER VANILLA (SK)
All eight eggs hatched 7/1, produced a killer collection of Axanthics! And lots of Vanilla in these guys! Beautiful clutch of animals!
KILLERBEE Het AXANTHIC X AXANTHIC LESSER VANILLA
All five small but healthy eggs hatched by 6/12. Got three Axanthics, including some Vanilla!
PINSTRIPE X CORAL GLOW ENCHI SPIDER
Paired my massive Pin (Hillary) to the new Coral Glow male. Couple of locks, but wasn't a priority given her ButterPin offspring dropped nine eggs from the Coral Glow.
CALICO-PASTEL X GRAY MATTER
BEL PARADOX X BUTTER LEOPARD Het CLOWN
Repeat pairing from last season, several locks but never went gravid. She'll be back in the rotation this fall.
Firebee girl dropped pre-lay shed on 5/22 ... due to lay 6/20. She's sitting on the heat but no coil ... not happening.
Not happening here ... multiple locks but she did not get up to proper weight. Next year.
Big disappointment here, she dropped several eggs but all candled w/o veins. Nevertheless tossed all into incubator only to watch them go bad. Will try again next season.
Interesting clutch, first attempt at breeding new Gray Matter male ... produced a pair of Champagne Pewter's.
