    They remind me of Steve's B&W radix line. And of they darken they aren't a million miles from our WC parietalis (Nobby).

    Nice work Sjoerd, this is another thread where I'm looking forward to seeing updates as these guys grow.

    Me too, but Steve's are hardly a "line" just yet.

    I speculate that in his case, and these, that it's polygenic. Bring together certain unexpressed genes in just the right combination and specific order in the DNA sequence and viola, together they become expressed in the outward appearance.

    WOW!! That snake is a beauty. So as far as projects go, (Joe, Don, Jeff, other forum breeders). How many years out are these cuties from being available if the right formula for producing them has been stumbled upon? Very cool snake.

    If it is polygenic, the "right formula" may never be known.

    You may have all the right cards in the deck to produce a royal flush but that doesn't mean you will deal that hand to any one player. Make sense?

    Sjored.... I agree with Chris if you think testing out this line might be something 2/3 years in the making please keep all of us updated. With the progress of these little ones for sure. Amazing. What are the sex of the 5 you have? And do you now repeat the same combo next year (mother/father) and hope for same results. Because the offspring (original 5) won't come into the picture for years, right???

    So if this was "dumb" luck we could never see these snakes again? Just these 5. In no way am I saying that any humans that had a hand in producing these beauties are "dumb", just the luck of it having happened only to never do so again. Not fair.....

    I hate to be a pessimist, but yeah, that's a possibility. Still worth "testing out" for sure.

    Steve, you have a B&W radix "line". Are there pics in a post somewhere......

    It was my understanding that there was one litter with a few of them in it which popped up at random, just like with these. That is not a "line"
