Whitewater Albino: The Whitewater rosy boa is a T+ albino boa that I think looks amazing as an adult. They have some variation in color and pattern which is typical of the boas found in Whitewater canyon. The variation in these boas is part of the fun of breeding and keeping them. If you handle them regularly and provide them with a great habitat, they become super tame and easy to handle.
The photos above are place holders until I upload some photos of my breeders. The second photo is the only Whitewater boa in these pictures.
Hypocabazaxanthics: I am very excited about the future of this project. This is a boa that is both hypomelanistic and axanthic. The hypo gene is from the Cabazon locality boa and the axanthic gene is from Pioneer Town. This is not a locality pure boa but each localities are not to far from each other. This boa would typically be called a ghost rosy boa but I would like to get the name hypocabaxanthics to catch on.
The first two photos are of two different hypocabazaxanthics. The third photo is a shot of a hypo that is possibly het axanthic and a axanthic that is possibly het hypo. These four snake will be the founding stock of the project. The forth photo is to contrast the different phenotypes. I may get more in the coming 2023 breeding season. I will be breeding 1.2 double hets. I hope I get lucky again.
Picasso and Het Picasso: This is one of the stranger rosy boa morphs in the hobby. The Picasso was first produced by the patience and hard work of Michael Goldbarg. I was able to pick up two het females and one male Picasso from Michael Goldbarg and Nick Smith. I should produce one or two more Picassos in the 2023 breeding season.
The recipe for this morph is a secret. I know because I purchased some and Michael was nice enough to let me know how they were created. My lips are sealed for now.
Catavina and El Rosario: I put these two localities together since they are very similar in color and locality. The main difference in these two localities is eye color. Catavinas have very rich orange colored eyes. The orange eyes are a product of the captive breeding efforts of Gary Keasler. These are amazing boas to work with.
Both localities have a dark maroon/brown striping with a gray background color. Based on the description I gave, try to figure out which photos are Catavinas and which are El Rosario.
Limberg Albino and Limberg Snow: These boas were first produced by Randy Limberg. He acquired an amelanistic male boa that was crossed with a group of females to produced boas heterozygous for the amel mutation. When the babies were bred together He was able to produce amelanistic boas. These boas have a red eye which hints that this amel is a different mutation than the Whitewater amel.
Randy went a step further and was able to cross an amelanistic boa with a anerythristic boa to make a boa that carries both mutations in it's genotype. When these double hets are crossed you have a one in sixteen chance of producing a boa with both mutations. These boas are typically called the Limberg Snow rosy boa.
