In the throes of the '20 breeding season, have increased # of pairings & engaged males with multiple genes including Orange Dream Desert Ghost, Gray Matter, Blackhead Quad, Coral Glow Enchi Spider, Axanthic Vanilla Lesser & Enchi-Yellowbelly Het Dreamsicle. As of early February counts have increased to "88" locks from 25 separate pairings, all listed below.

New Orange Dream Desert Ghost male, paired with my veteran Firebee. They jumped each other immediately ... witnessed couple locks.
Repeat pairing from last season, where she did not go. Hoping to get lucky this year as they could make some powerful Super Blackhead's with this lethal combo! Two locks here too ...
Another repeat & successful pairing from last season. Planning to make lots more Mardi Gras & Freeways!
IVORY X ASPHALT ENCHI PASTEL
FIREBEE X ORANGE DREAM DESERT GHOST
BLACKHEAD SUPERFLY X BLACKHEAD QUAD
PINSTRIPE YELLOWBELLY Het DESERT GHOST X
ORANGE DREAM DESERT GHOST
This is exciting ... my first chance to produce a Desert Ghost, albeit with Orange Dream. My new male is not wasting time, getting down to business quickly, he's been in seperate locks in the first two days of '20 breeding season!
BUTTER-DADDY SPINNER X BUTTER LEOPARD Het CLOWN
BEL SUPER BUTTER X CORAL GLOW ENCHI SPIDER
Repeat pairing from last season, where she did not go ... but good start this year. Love this girl, she's gorgeous & could produce some stunning offspring ... couple locks already.
New pairing, my Coral Glow male delivered some beautiful animals last year ... hoping for the same here.
AXANTHIC KILLERBEE X AXANTHIC VANILLA LESSER
Repeat pairing from last season, they produced an outstanding clutch.
My most exciting project, as I'm attempting to produce the "Extreme Dream", a project I started with Justin Kobylka. He discovered the combination of Enchi into the Lavendar morph produces a brilliant orange. (see pic below) We decided to call it the Extreme Dream as both of us are angling to produce this Dreamsicle version in '20.
DREAMSICLE X ENCHI-YELLOWBELLY DOUBLE HET DREAMSICLE
YELLOWBELLY Het DESERT GHOST X ORANGE DREAM DESERT GHOST
My second pairing chasing Desert Ghost, love this new male!
BLACKHEAD X BLACKHEAD QUAD
My second pairing to produce what I hope will be some spectular Super Blackhead combo's.
CALICO-PASTEL X GRAY MATTER
Repeat pairing from last season which produced some really cool pewter morphs.
SPOTNOSE Het CLOWN X BUTTER LEOPARD Het CLOWN
And yet another pairing from last season that yielded some cool morphs but missed on a Clown. Hoping to see one this year.
MOJAVE YELLOWBELLY Het GHOST X ASPHALT ENCHI PASTEL
Paired last season, hoping for more Freeways & possibly a Mardi Gras ... ?
Another successful pairing from last season, love those Blackhead Ghosts!
BEL GHOST X BLACKHEAD-YELLOWBELLY Het GHOST
KILLERBEE Het AXANTHIC X AXANTHIC VANILLA LESSER
Veteran Killerbee female, she always delivers.
BLADE FIRE JUNGLE WOMA LEOPARD Het CLOWN X
BUTTER LEOPARD Het CLOWN
New pairing with a powerful set of genetics, would love to drop a Clown out of this mix!
BLACKHEAD YELLOWBELLY X ASPHALT ENCHI PASTEL
This pair has dropped clutches two years in a row and produced some awesome animals. But I'm still hoping to hit on a Blackhead Freeway or Mardi Gras ... maybe this year?
SUPER PASTEL YELLOWBELLY X ASPHALT ENCHI PASTEL
Paired these two last year with multiple locks but she never went gravid. She's hefty, feels more promising this season ...
BUTTER-DADDY #2 X BUTTER LEOPARD Het CLOWN
These two paired & produced last season. Love making BD Leopards, BD's and BELs! She's been very reliable, love this girl!
PINSTRIPE X CORAL GLOW ENCHI SPIDER
Decided to pair our favorite elephant, the first Ball in my collection 10 years ago ... "Hillary" our beloved Pinstripe. She's dropped many clutches in the past, had given her a few years off, going to make some cool Coral Glow Pins.
CALICO X BLACKHEAD QUAD
Attempted couple pairings of my veteran Calico female with new Gray Matter male, but no locks. Fallback here to put her in play for producing more Blackheads, albeit powerful combo.
BUTTERPIN X ORANGE DREAM DESERT GHOST
Another pairing of new OD DG male to my veteran ButterPin. While still Het DG offspring, the OD+BPIN combo should be interesting.
SUPER FIRE PEWTER X GRAY MATTER
Finally these two locked ... new Super Fire Pewter female to my Gray Matter. Hoping to make some Fire Gray Matters!
Veteran pairing ...
BUTTER DADDY #1 X BUTTER LEOPARD Het CLOWN
ENCHI VANILLA Het AXANTHIC X AXANTHIC VANILLA LESSER
New female, opportunity to add super Vanilla into my Axanthic line. Her first lock & she's a bit light. So low odds here unless her appetite takes off.
