I have a panda female that I’d like to breed more of, for obvious reasons. I don’t have another panda to breed her with, so I have heard I can do it one of two other ways: Breed her to a cinnamon pied (to reduce birth defects) or to breed her with a black pastel pied.
When I type those options in the calculator, the black pastel seems to be the only way, so I need some clarity.
A lot of people have been avoiding making combos with super cinny/black pastel due to birth defects (severe kinking). Even breeding the two together can cause issues. Many have been moving away from cinny/black pastel and instead they are working with mahogany. Super mahogany, or suma, have no known birth defects and you get a dark snake just like the other combos. Suma pieds look almost the same as panda pied, but without any issues. I would recommend working towards suma pied project instead of bothering mixing those two genes. Get yourself a mahogany/suma pied/het pied male for her. Abyss (suma ghi) pied combos are going to be very popular in the future due to the fact that neither gene carries any chance of defects, so I would also recommend that over projects with black pastel/cinnamon. They also create even darker snakes that don’t fade as much over time from the reports.
We produce panda pieds from a black pastel het pied(female) to a back pastel pied (male). We haven’t had any defects in years. All of our black pastels are from the same line and purchased from reputable breeders.
There are many ways to produce panda pieds.
I know that the genes by themselves have no issues. I meant the genes together but forgot to add super before them lol. I wrote it at like 6am when I hadn’t been asleep. I was also referring to the 8-ball combo later. From what I have heard the 8-ball can have issues too.
I have a black pastel pied male and female I will breed and see what happens. So now–I just need to work out with to do with my Panda pied female. I was planning on breeding her to the black pastel pied male…
I’m also going to be trying to get pandas. Let’s just hope we beat the ugly odds. I’m going to try and incubate them low and slow. Hopefully it’ll help will defects🤞Good luck🍀I love this girl so much, can’t wait to pair her up!
