    Litter #7 PANDA PIED MAKERS!!!

    This is a very significant litter. The dame is a melanistic female and the sire is het piedbald. These babies aren't much to look at because they are phenotypically normal, but they are 100% het melanistic and 50% poss het piebald, so they have incredible genetic potential. They have the potential to make a white snake with black patches, which could be very impressive looking. A total of 9 live babies, two stills, and a few jellys.

    Will be interesting to see if this is possible.. The only other "panda pieds" that I know of are ball pythons in which it isn't a melanistic used but rather a super form of the black pastel. I believe the melanistic will overpower the pied but should be interesting to prove out none the less.

    Congrats Jeff! That's some potential power, right there

    Tyler, hopefully the pied gene will work like they do with balls. You can have pied in combination with other recessives and not hide the pied trait.

    Fingers crossed for this project, its def. a cool one!

    I second the idea that melanistic will overpower the pied appearance, but nonetheless, they would make powerhouse breeders!

    Should be quite exciting in two or three years time! Best of luck
