New Orange Dream Desert Ghost male, paired with my veteran Firebee. YTD have witnessed 5 locks. She had her OVY on 4/27, dropped prelay shed & now projected to lay on 6/13.
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 on 04/01, due to hatch 06/01. Cut the eggs & results look outstanding ... count 3 Mardi Gras, 1-Pastel Freeway, 1-Asphalt-Enchi-Pastel.
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
Very cool, my first shot at producing Desert Ghost. This virgin girl dropped six healthy eggs on 4/14, due to hatch 6/14. Awesome.
BUTTER-DADDY SPINNER X BUTTER LEOPARD Het CLOWN
BEL SUPER BUTTER Paradox X CORAL GLOW ENCHI SPIDER
Virgin girl dropped her first clutch on 4/21, due to hatch 6/20. Three eggs candled + couple slugs.
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. Now giving strong odds & awaiting prelay shed. Likely set to lay late June.
AXANTHIC KILLERBEE X AXANTHIC VANILLA LESSER
Repeat pairing from last season, witnessed 6 locks & dropped four healthy eggs, scheduled to hatch 7/21.
Exciting project, attempting to produce the "Extreme Dream", an initiative I started with Justin Kobylka. He discovered the combination of Enchi into the Lavendar morph produces a brilliant orange. (pics below) YTD witnessed 7 locks. On 5/01, she dropped five healthy eggs due to hatch 7/1.
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 ... so odds have increased here immensely. Will monitor closely & continue to feed aggressively.
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
Repeat pairing from last season, she dropped a very healthy clutch of eight eggs, scheduled to hatch 07/24.
SPOTNOSE Het CLOWN X BUTTER LEOPARD Het CLOWN
Another pairing from last season that yielded some cool morphs but missed on a Clown. Hoping to get one this year. YTD have witnessed 5 locks. Witnessed OVY on 4/16 & dropped prelay shed shortly thereafter, scheduled to lay 6/3.
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.
Another successful pairing from last season, love those Blackhead Ghosts! YTD have witnessed 8 locks. In the final stretch, she dropped prelay & scheduled to lay 6/11.
BEL GHOST X BLACKHEAD-YELLOWBELLY Het GHOST
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! YTD have witnessed 6 locks. She had her OVY on 4/25, dropped prelay shed and is scheduled to lay eggs 6/12.
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? YTD have witnessed only 2 locks. So borderline on her this season, will watch for pre-lay shed & see where things go.
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
Decided to pair our favorite elephant, "Hillary" our beloved Pinstripe. I had given her a few years off, but thought we'd make some cool Coral Glow Pin's YTD have witnessed 6 locks. She's massive, (4800gms+), dropped prelay shed and now scheduled to lay eggs 6/17.
CALICO X BLACKHEAD QUAD
Veteran Calico girl dropped four large oblong and healthy eggs on 4/29, scheduled to hatch 6/29.
BUTTERPIN X ORANGE DREAM DESERT GHOST
Another pairing of new OD DG male to my veteran ButterPin. YTD witnessed 6 locks & she's massive! She dropped a nice clutch of eleven healthy eggs on 5/05, due to hatch 7/05.
SUPER FIRE PEWTER X GRAY MATTER
Pairing new Super Fire Pewter female to my Gray Matter. YTD have witnessed 5 locks. Good news here, she had an OVY on 4/22, and dropped prelay on 5/8 ... scheduled to lay 6/8.
Veteran pairing ... YTD have witnessed 2 locks. She dropped seven healthy eggs, scheduled to hatch 7/21.
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
Unproven Lavendar-Albino het Dream in lock with the new Enchi-Yellowbelly Double het for Dream male. Like the Dreamsicle above, the pairing here could produce a powerful "Extreme Dream" combo, albeit with 1/8 odds. YTD only witnessed one lock. She did drop shed on 5/13, so will watch her behavior but weak odds here given her weight & lack of appetite.
'08 LAVENDAR ALBINO Het DREAMSICLE X
ENCHI YELLOWBELLY DOUBLE Het DREAMSICLE
Veteran Lavendar-Albino het Dream girl dropped five healthy eggs on 5/10, scheduled to hatch 7/10.
Veteran Killerbee het had eight locks. She dropped eight small but healthy eggs on 5/2, set to hatch 7/2.
KILLERBEE Het AXANTHIC X AXANTHIC VANILLA LESSER
