In between photographing hatchlings, I took the opportunity to get a couple shots of some holdbacks. The first two are 2020 clutchmates that I’ll be using to produce Sunburst Superconda’s. The last gal kind of amazes me. I hadn’t looked closely at her, she was a holdback regardless. While editing her photo, I noticed that she’s got a lot of similar markings to my yellow mystery gal, Blinkey… and she should, since they share the same mom
I’m loving the second one because of that intense red stripe! I get excited every time I see you are posting pictures of hognose!
Super nice stuff as always! Love them! Second is my favorite just in case your wondering lol
I love the black mirror affect that you use
The second’s also my favorite. It seems to have a more silvery iridescence than the other ones.
I’m the same way.
Another vote for #2 as my favorite! Really cool babies!
Jeez… no love for #3
#2 is I don’t even know how to describe her colours in person.
I’ll have to remember that! Because I keep mostly hogs, I don’t tend to post often. It’d be ALL hognoses.
I’m always curious which are everyone’s favourites Shaun! It sounds unanimous
She does have that silvery iridescence! I’ve never tried describing it, but you did perfectly Riley
Thanks Olivia! I was hoping they’d turn out maybe half as vibrant as they did. The parents are super, super red and dad is one of the darkest Sables I’ve seen!
Still unanimous - they’re all very, very nice, but to my eye that second one is an absolute stunner! What are the morphs? I’m a corn snake girl who has always been charmed by wild hog nosed snakes.
Second has a stunning stripe.
But number one has some lovely bright face markings that draw me in and such a lovely colour.
And I mean number 3 is just a cutie
I would like to be on the record that number 3 is an absolute screamer As well!
Top is an Albino Superconda, second is a normal Conda and the last I’m not sure about. Albino something. The Superconda’s are “painted stripes”, a name given when they have the darker dorsal colour.
The first one is so bright in person, I didn’t expect her to turn out as red as she is
Isn’t she though?! I’m really looking forward to growing her up, the pattern is amazing!
Yeah I’m that guy that doesn’t breed or know anything about morphs or genetics or anything like that. I just like looking at gorgeous reptiles. And those are gorgeous reptiles!
I mean I’m certainly not complaining! I’d love to see you post more of your hognoses, in my opinion there’s never to many photos of hognose snakes!
