What are your breeding projects?

What are your breeding projects and goals that you’re working towards? How long do you think it will take to reach those goals? Pictures of the animals in the projects are always welcome.

I’m personally working with leopard geckos. I’d like to produce an Albino Eclipse W&Y Tangerine and an Albino Eclipse W&Y Super Mack Snow Black Night. I expect that it will take me about 3 years to produce the tangerine combo and about 4 years to produce the black night combo.
I would also like to produce a snow stripe sand boa and a sunglow house snake (albino hypo). In many years I may try a Super Anaconda Arctic Albino x Super Anaconda Arctic het Albino western hognose project but that would be very expensive so it would be in at least a few years.

Plan to capitalize on the Sterling and IMG genes in boas eventually mixing in VPI obviously to make Sterling IMG VPI Snowglows. With all the recessives, it is going to take a while to stack and buy lol :joy:. Willow is the start of a life of a breeding project, as I really would love to work with other projects too.


Definitely getting some size :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

@lumpy Willow’s looking great, she’s gained a lot of size.
@westridge Those are lots of projects, they all look very impressive. I’d love to see more captive bred calabars in the pet trade.
@reptilian_rapscallions Those look like very nice projects. I really love the look of ultramel clowns.

Rubber boas (maybe this year, maybe not)
Calabar boa (a few years away most likely)
Rhamphiophis (whenever they decide to go again)
Kukri (probably in a few months, but maybe not)
Bredli (maybe this year)

And then whatever balls I decide to throw together, though more and more I find myself caring about those pairings less and less

My plans are all future at this point.

Hognoses:
Ultimate goal is to produce snow superconda (few year project for sure… i want to produce snow and all of its conda “phases”)
Axanthic superconda
Albino superconda
Arctic
Toffee
Tri-color (years down the road. Inhave plans to hopefully get a tri this year)

Ball pythons:
Pieds, mixing mojave, and eventually pastel in.
Leopard (not sire if i want to mix this into pied or have a separste project).

Bps are a more casual eventual project. Kane is of age, but my mojave is just a baby so ive got time while she grows out.

@t_h_wyman Those are some amazing pairings. They are all species I would love to get and breed someday.
@jverz Supercondas are my favorite hognose morphs so I think these are awesome pairings, keep us updated with all of these.
@jfalconer I love how lavenders look, I just looked at watermelons and they look super cool, awesome project.

Daaaaang. I had no idea they got that beefy. Is that regular weight for her?

That is her post-brumation weight. Female Kenyan Sand Boas can actually be much bigger than that. I just sold one that was over 1000g.
