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.

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!

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.

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.

IMG_4774

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!  

IMG_4786

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

IMG_4815

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.

IMG_4808

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.

IMG_4823 IMG_4853 IMG_4860 BEL on eggs

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 BEL-like animals NOT highlighted on morph-market or even BP wizard.  Appears this pairing creates a super form, that needs to researched further.  Nevertheless ground-breaking & excited for me ... very beautiful animals!
