Hi y’all! Banana is one of my favorite genes, and in the next couple of months I will be on the lookout for a beautiful female banana pied. I have some ideas of genes I’m interested in mixing with her in a few years, but it occurred to me that I see tons of photos of adult single-gene bananas, but not a ton of combos. I’m really interested to see how banana works with combos as the snakes grow and settle into their adult colors! If you have an adult banana or banana combo, show it off!
My prized boy, Banan — he’s a banana yellowbelly. One of my sweetest snakes with a great temperament.
He was paired to a pastel het VPI, so hoping for some banana combos out of those two!
I also have a banana het pied but he’s still a baby
Almost always in his hide, and a slightly finicky eater.
@stewart_reptiles What are the genes involved in those top three, if I may ask?
banana enchi, hypo coral glow leapard lesser, coral glow leopard
Everything in order
Coral Glow Enchi Pied
Hypo Coral Glow Lesser Leopard
Coral Glow Leopard
Hypo Pastel Coral Glow Leopard
I’m expecting this boy tomorrow so the picture is made by a friend. Was not planning on it but got an offer I couldn’t refuse. He said he got him as a banana pastave but seeing the black spots, colour and alien heads to me he looks more like a really nice banana pastel, but I love the brightness of the colours
This is my banana champagne pastel het VPI boy. His name is Akira.
I would classify this guy as more of a sub adult, but he likely won’t change in color too much more than he has. He used to be nearly white as a hatchling, but when I got him he was already really yellow and has only gotten brighter. He is roughly 580g when empty. So close to that 600g mark. I love the subtle darker yellow pattern on him, and the yellow stripes behind his eyes.
Another one to show off could be my favorite to date and I still have to figure out what he really is but at worse it’s an Hypo Coral Glow Calico Pinstripe.
Whoa! That’s a stunner! I’ve always been curious how hypo interacts with banana/CG. And the pin & calico I can definitely see, and I love it.
Thanks Hypo simply help reduce the number of black spots, and for the few that are present they are grey instead of black.
Also if anyone has suggestions on what to look into pairing her with in a few years, I’m open to them. A good friend said always pair a female with a male equally as powerful or more so. I’m looking into going with a dark gene het pied male, but what genes is still in the air.
A post was merged into an existing topic: Who doesn’t love the Banana gang?!
Well… This is now my wife’s favorite combo and i need to get one asap…
Love banana combos! Been looking for a banana calico for forever. Prefer something older than hatchling but not necessarily an adult.
