2020 Breeding Season
Early August & we have produced seventeen clutches and 115 eggs. Twelve clutches have hatched, with five more to go. Results thus far have been outstanding ... including three Dreamsicle Yellowbelly's, three Enchi Lavendar Albino's, four Freeway combo's & my first Desert Ghosts. Still more amazing animals coming! As clutches hatch, will update pics below and document the progress!

Firebee dropped a week early ... only two eggs, one did not candle. First disappointment this season, due to hatch 8/07.
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! YTD have witnessed 6 locks & her weight is good. But have not seen an OVY or behavior that she's building. Ugghh.
Ivory delivered again this season, dropped seven healthy eggs which hatched on 06/01. Outstanding results as we hit on four Freeway combos! Love working the Asphalt project & making gorgeous animals.
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
Clutch hatched 6/10, produced pair of Desert Ghost Pin's one with Orange Dream, the other Yellowbelly.
BUTTER-DADDY SPINNER X BUTTER LEOPARD Het CLOWN
BEL SUPER BUTTER Paradox X CORAL GLOW ENCHI SPIDER
Virgin girl dropped three healthy eggs, hatched 6/15 ... beat the odds & produced stunning Butter-Daddy Leopard Spinner! Wow, she's a beauty!!!!
New pairing with my Coral Glow male who delivered some beautiful animals last year. YTD have witnessed 3 locks. She then went ballistic on food & weight increased significantly. As of 7/10, dropped shed think she's a push for next season.
AXANTHIC KILLERBEE X AXANTHIC VANILLA LESSER
Repeat pairing from last season, clutch hatched 7/30, produced nice pair of Pewterpagne's.
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! YTD have witnessed 5 locks. Wow, she went totally ballistic on food in May like several others. She built nicely but will push to next season. Also another early play this fall.
BLACKHEAD X BLACKHEAD QUAD
My second pairing to produce what I hope will be some spectular Super Blackhead combo's. YTD have witnessed 3 locks. She's a bit light, slightly swollen, decent weight, maybe still a shot? Awaiting pre-lay shed, she's coiling on the heat ...
CALICO-PASTEL X GRAY MATTER
Entire clutch hatched by 8/03. Lots of pretty Axanthic animals, heavy on the Queenbee!
SPOTNOSE Het CLOWN X BUTTER LEOPARD Het CLOWN
Spotnose dropped seven healthy eggs, began hatching 08/5. Already produced a Spotnose Clown, looks like another Clown still in the egg? Some other very interesting animals, will post clutch pic when they emerge.
MOJAVE YELLOWBELLY Het GHOST X ASPHALT ENCHI PASTEL
Paired last season, hoping for more Freeways & possibly a Mardi Gras ... ? YTD have witnessed only 2 locks. Not happening this season.
BEL ghost dropped a nice healthy clutch of nine eggs due to hatch 8/05.
BEL GHOST X BLACKHEAD-YELLOWBELLY Het GHOST
BLADE FIRE JUNGLE WOMA LEOPARD Het CLOWN X
BUTTER LEOPARD Het CLOWN
Blade fire woma LEO virgin dropped very a healthy set of eight eggs, due to hatch 8/9.
BLACKHEAD YELLOWBELLY X ASPHALT ENCHI PASTEL
This pair has dropped clutches two years in a row and produced some awesome animals. Fingers crossed, as of 7/12 she's grown considerably after a couple weeks of gorging on 8-10 rats. She's now in shed coiled on the heat, hoping its prelay. She is quite swollen, stiff and gravid, I think she may go. (2200gms) This would be an awesome late season surprise & clutch #18.
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 ... YTD have witnessed 2 locks. Another borderline, minimal locks, decent weight, hard to tell. I'm guessing no this season ... again
BUTTER-DADDY #2 X BUTTER LEOPARD Het CLOWN
These two paired & produced last season. She's been very reliable, love this girl! YTD have witnessed 5 locks. She dropped pre-lay shed & would be scheduled to lay on 5/30.
PINSTRIPE X CORAL GLOW ENCHI SPIDER
"Hillary" dropped fourteen healthy eggs, (four more after pic) due to hatch 08/13.
CALICO X BLACKHEAD QUAD
Calico clutch hatched 6/26, very nice clutch, especially Blackhead QUAD. Calico looks to be high-white and other two Blackheads are striking as well.
BUTTERPIN X ORANGE DREAM DESERT GHOST
Butterpin clutch hatched 6/30, all 100% Het for Desert Ghost. Nice assortment of pretty animals.
SUPER FIRE PEWTER X GRAY MATTER & CORAL GLOW ENCHI SPIDER
Virgin Super Fire Pewter began hatching six eggs, on Aug-06.
Veteran Butter Daddy clutch hatched 7-18, seven pretty animals.
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. YTD have witnessed 3 locks. Too lite, not happening this season.
'16 LAVENDAR ALBINO p/het DREAMSICLE X
ENCHI YELLOWBELLY DOUBLE het DREAMSICLE
Here's my 3rd attempt at the "Extreme Dream" project listed above. Unproven Lavendar-Albino het Dream holdback paired new Enchi-Yellowbelly Double het for Dream male. YTD only witnessed one lock. In late May she went ballistic on food, consumed six rats in two days! She had a nice build but I think she's also a push to next season. Will line her up early this fall.
'08 LAVENDAR ALBINO Het DREAMSICLE X
ENCHI YELLOWBELLY DOUBLE Het DREAMSICLE
Lavendar clutch hatched 7/4, produced another stunning Dreamsicle Yellowbelly & three Enchi Lavendar Albino's. Great results, beat the odds on this one!
Killerbee het clutch hatched 6/27, landed four visual Axanthics & three hets. Several show Vanilla, nice!
