This girl continues to grow. Our lab breeding project will hopefully result in some great babies in May or June. We missed ovulation due to travel, so it will be a surprise when I walk into my office to find babies... Hopefully.
I have a few animals I am going to be selling to free up some space. These include (but are not limited to) - Boas - 1.0 adult proven Costa Rican T+ (will free unrelated female 2 year old Costa RIcan). This is a great entry into the Costa Rican T+ project. Make new hets within 2 years. $1500. 0.1. Hypo motley het Lindy line/Freedom breeder (according to Jeremy Stone) - $550. Balls - 0.1 2016 Super pastel - $100. 1.0 2015 Orange Dream Pastel - $275; 0.1 het caramel poss het desert Ghost - $85. Message for pictures. Short payment plans possible (up to 90 days on items over $1000).
We have an ovulation. I am not sure if this is the beginning or the end as I have been away for 4 days giving an invited lecture at Texas A&M. Pastel genetic stripe bred by a banana lesser. Now we wait for a post ovulation shed and eggs.
We are happy to say that our "lab/office" breeding project is going very well. We paired a male Costa Rican T+ to a Black Eyed Anery to make some dhets. Today I took her out to check her over and to clean her cage a little. She is looking fantastic, and is very gravid. We did not observed an ovulation, and did not record an post-ovulation shed (due to travel), so this one will be a fun litter. She has the right proportions to be carrying babies, so lets see what we get, and when.
Congratulations to our friend Kevin Hasley on the production of the worlds first IMG black eyed anerythristic. Some other great little beasties in that litter also. Good work.
Congratulations to by good friend Lucas Matlock with the birth of his first 2016 litter. What a great litter - VPI Snows, VPI T+, Motley VPI T+, Anery Motley poss het VPI T+, poss double hets. Great animals from a great breeder. Check him out if you are looking to get into these cool morphs - https://www.facebook.com/matlock.morphs/

We took out my lab office desk pet to check her over for signs of being gravid. Our opinion is.. yes, she is gravid. This is her today. She was bred extensively by a Costa Rican T+. Fingers crossed for Booth-lab made dhets. If these are something you might be interested in, feel free to drop me a message to discuss getting on the wait list. Below is her current pose, with some breeding pics from before.
We would love to have been at TInley Park this weekend for the NARBC show, unfortunately it was not meant to be. Maybe in the Fall, we shall see. But, with being unable to hit that show, we were able to spend time here with our own animals, and keep an eye on two very special boas that are currently gravid. Having been away so much over November/December, we missed post-ovulation shed dates on both, and indeed one may have shed from an ovulation just at the beginning of January. That said, both are on the heat, and looking great. The Lindy was with two males; early on a motley het black eyed anery (motley het Lindy poss het black eyed anery would be incredible), and then a Lindy male that was leaving sperm trails throughout his tub and I had no other females I wanted to pair this year. So, he did the job with her, big time. Either cross would be fantastic to see, and April is hopefully when we will see the results. The Costa Rican was bred extensively by a male black eyed anery. Double het black eyed anery Costa Rican line T+ are a dream of mine. The snow.... I can only imagine. Other than that, we might see some ball python eggs also. We shall see. As always, you guys will see the results first, good or bad. I do not believe in hiding breeding failures. For those heading to Tinley tomorrow, have fun. For everyone else with cash burning a hole in their pockets, we will be listing several animals early next week. Stay tuned.
Recently, we started switching everything from aspen over to Reptichip. Mainly for reasons relating to humidity, as it holds humidity well while also drying out went needed. Well, we had heard that poor feeders when put on reptichip often began feeding. We decided to try this with three ball pythons in the collection that have been live or assist feeders only. They were placed on reptichip on Monday night and placed back in their same slot in their vision V15 or V18 rack. Tonight, I allowed the rodents to defrost at room temperature, placed them over a warm heat mat for 20 minutes to warm through, then offered to each snake from 18" forceps. All three nailed their meals without hesitation. Amazing. Mind... blown.
This little girl arrived with us today from Dave at 3D Reptiles. This is a Bamboo Mojave, and all I can say is wow. I thought this would have been just another blue eyed leucistic, but this is far from it. IT is purple, pink, lavender, white. Nothing that my crappy IPhone pictures can pick up. Just stunning. This girl brings us to a nice little selection of Bamboos to play with (male Bamboo het ghost, Female Pastel Bamboo het ghost, Female Bamboo Mojave). Not to raise these up.
We have some ball python loving going on at the moment. This Pastel Genetic Stripe girl has been building follicles and has paired with this Banana Lesser multiple times. Fingers crossed. Got to love that Reptichip also.
Its coming up to tax return time, so I might as well post some pictures of animals we have here for sale. These belong to our good friend Lucas Matlock and we want to help advertise these to the masses. Available animals include 2014 Aztec VPI T+ pink panther male, 2014 Aztec het VPI T+ pink panther male, 2014 VPI T+ pink panther male, 2014 pink panther het VPI T+ females, and of course 2.2 dhet berry blood Nic T+.
A little bit of CA T+ variation.
Thanks go to Dave at 3D Reptiles for our newest addition to the growing ball collection. We have a stunning female Champagne, a hidden gene woma female, and a beautiful bamboo het ghost male coming once the weather becomes a little more sensible. Its been quite a ride this year adding ball pythons to the family again (after quite a period of absence), but we are doing it systematically and bringing in only what we like and only what we will have fun with. Future financial gain has no influence here.
We had a fantastic day at the NARBC show in Arlington, Texas. Bob and Brian put on a great show. We also got to meet up with some friends, and see some great animals. Until I get better pictures, here are some quick pictures.
Its great having a nice pair of boas in the office at the lab.While these are not great pictures, you can see that the male Costa Rican T+ is still having fun with a female Black eyed anerythristic. Dhets from this pair would be a really season highlight for me. I have a female Costa Rican T+ gravid to a male black eyed anery already (see pics further down page). Do you think I am more than a little excited to make some snows from these lines. Ahh, yes I am.
We will be at the NARBC show in Arlington this coming Saturday. Just a one day trip, but we are looking forward to meeting people. We have one last reverse trio of het lindy Line boas, a male leopard Sonoran, and a killer super hypo striped poss het leopard sonoran that we can bring, thus cutting out on shipping. Drop me a message if interested.
We also love to see babies being born, and we have been lucky to catch it quite a few times. Here is a picture from one of our pure Sonoran Hypos giving birth a few years ago. I wonder what that little one was like from the bottom of the picture :) Very ghostly.
We do love our Sonoran boas here at the Boa Booth. Here is one of our Super Hypos. Pure Sonoran. Produced back in 2008 (I think)
Here is a question for you all. How many of you charge for a shipping box and heat pack? I personally do not, regardless of whether the snake is $70 or a $7000. Given the minimal cost of shipping boxes and heat packs I just chalk it up to my annual overall expense. Thoughts are welcomed.
Female F4 - Hypo het leopard - Sold
Folks, we are looking for a couple of ball pythons in trade. Specifically, we are looking for the following - Chocolate female, Ghost female, Superstripe (either sex), Champagne (either sex), blackhead (either sex). We have some great animals to trade so hit me up with what you have.
OK, last one for tonight. Here is a picture of one of the offspring from the Berry blood to Burke/Stone Nicaraguan T+. You will not find it easy to find any from a similar litter. We have two pairs available. Males $850, Females $1000, pairs $1800 shipped. Payment plans available. PM me and let see what we can work out.
Why buy a Berry line blood over other lines... here is your answer. They stay RED. This boy is over 4 years old. Pics as a baby and as an adult male. Got to love this line. I can only imagine how the T+ Berry blood will look. Of course, we will know in a couple of years :)
