First bred in Italy from the awesome @boaline team and sourced in the US from our good friends at @beyond_genetix, the Indy Morph is new, strong and beautiful! Meet OI (Indy), Gizmo (Hypo Indy) and Paulie (Motley Indy) with more to come….
Aww thanks @caron! We are big B&T fans. We are both solidly #genx (born 1961-1981 depending on the source, but we like the NatGeo one below)… which is another reason why we are SO excited about the Indy morph!!!
Grunge/Indy Music Labels/Indy Everything/DIY Fashion/Alternative - being Indy - was what our generation was/is all about We are few (statistically, we really are the smallest generation!), but we are fierce!
(And to correct my movie quote paraphrasing above…
"be excellent to each other… and PARTY ON, DUDES!:
I can certainly understand your excitement! Your snake is absolutely a beauty! Since I live just south of Indy I love the name of the project!
Thank you for clearing up that statement! Lol! Bill and Ted by chance? Lol!
Even though I have a few years on probably most of everyone here, I am still young in heart and spirit! Snakes are my passion (pets only). Even though I have a mix, boas by far are my favorites of all the snakes I have. But I have a couple of geckos that are pretty darn cute too!
However, retics fascinate me. Aside from that, all of you guys in this community have been amazing to me! And:
@caron that is awesome, and thank you for the kind words!
We really do love this species and are super picky during the selection (and care!) process. And totally agreed about this community! That is what we love about it too: the support for each other and the true love each person has for their animals .
(And regarding age: I TRULY believe it is just a number and we are “in” the generation with which we most identify! I would tag you as a Gen-Xer for sure You definitely have that rockin’ spirit!)
With lots more to come… hoping we can get a cohort of folks who want to join in on “The Indy Initiative” as launched by VMB with the above mentioned Indy Morph credited to @boaline and originally sourced in the US by @beyond_genetix!
Our planned breeding trails are going to be REALLY interesting and the marketing will be VERY cool as well: international, friendly and fun.
Ie Aaron’s suggestion: make the shirts with the Italian flag on one sleeve and US flag on the other . And then we brainstormed other shirts with logos of everyone who has an Indy (and who wants to participate) … like a band tour or 5K shirt.
Anywhoo, thank you for participating in this thread, all! Stay tuned with more to come with this and other VMB projects tooo… (PS: We had this logo designed via an IG logo designer; this is an actual rendition of OI, our Indy girl!)
Oh. My. Gosh. That is a truly stunning snake! Love that big wide dorsal stripe with the patterned sides, and I love all the freckles! I’d love a boa like that. If that one goes missing, I definitely didn’t snakenap it. Honest. I swear.
@jawramik thank you so much!!! She truly is special. And although you can’t have this one (I’m not saying she’s lowjacked, but… ) our breeding plans will hopefully produce some stunners in the season ahead! I’m sure we’ll be updating everyone here a LOT with our progress as things move forward. Thank you for the support!! We appreciate the good vibes!!
Had some solid picture time with our Indy girls today and wanted to post here to show the difference between the regular Indy the Hypo Indy and then the difference between two Hypo Indys . We are LOVING this morph!! Can’t wait for next year’s breeding pairs!!
