    Just wanted to share some of my California King collection.
    Most of these will not breed until 2014, but I'd like to think we put together a pretty interesting group that'll produce some killer babies for many years......

    I like snakes 2, 13, and 14. The second one of the first post and the last two of the second post. I have a question...all these color morphs are they found naturally in the wild or a product of human cross breeding?

    Thanks everyone...
    The striped, banded, newport stripe, amel, lavender, hypermel and hypomelanistic are all found in the wild.
    Double homozygotes like the lavender hypermel and blizzards are the result of selective propagation in captivity.

    The High Whites are the result of line breeding the newport stripers and crossing them into the desert phase for the white.
    Here is a list of what the pics are if anyone is interested:
    1. Lavender Hypermel or Purple Passion
    2. Reverse Stripe High White
    3. Hypomelanistic
    4. Amelanistic Aberrant Coastal Phase
    5. Hypermelanistic Banana (Chocolate Banana)
    6. High White Banana
    7. Reverse Dotted High White
    8. Aberrant High White Banana
    9. Amel Coastal Phase Possible Het Lavender (possibly a double homozygous lavender and amel)
    10. Hypomelanistic (This is an ontogenetic hypomelanism - there are 4 types of hypos so far with californiae)
    11. Hypermelanistic (Het for Lavender and Amel - Chocolate Tiger)
    12. Desert Phase Amelanistic
    13. Aberrant Hypermelanistic (Possible het for Lavender & Amel)
    14. Mosaic (Codominant trait - Possilbe het Lavender or Amel)
    15. Dark Lavender Newport-like stripe

    Wicked snakes man!

    Have you seen the aberrants, stripes, super stripes, amels, yellow amels, aberrant amels and striped amels yet?

    Hahahaha......I will have to post them all up soon....No super striped amel yet though. Only a few folks are working on that right now.

    Most of those morphs come from Amealco, Mexico stock.
    Some aberrants like the Diablo morph come from Tapalpa, Mexico stock.
    Then there's a few Jalpan, Mexico stock in the nation. We have a pair that should breed next year. I know of no one else breeding them in the US.

    I like the striped ones, I found one online that has almost a greenish yellow line down its back! Its a nice snake. Both my Ruthveni are 100% het amel. Im looking to find another female to try and push onto the male to get another gene mixed in there. Im not sure what to look at. I was told to find some simple recessives to breed into the mix to make some multigene snakes.
    I have to re-learn my punnet square first. If i remember correctly, my 2 hets should yield a.25% chance of albino, with a 66% for hets, and the remainder are normal?

    You, my friend, are the king of kings!
    Awesome snakes! I love the high whites.

    Those are awsome! 2,5,8, and 11 are my favorite

    The only recessive trait in ruthveni is amel.
    The rest are polymorphic but can be passed on genetically.

    Het X Het
    =1/4 homozygous
    =1/2 heterozygous
    =1/4 normal

    So out of the 3/4 that look normal 66% of them are true hets.
    The other 1/4 or 33% are normal, het for nothing.

    So are correct!
