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!
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.
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!
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.

All seven eggs hatched by 7/28. Produced my first Spotnose Clown!
