Leopard Phase

Leopard Boy

We purchased a CB03 male Brazilian Rainbow Boa back in October 2008 from a nice gentleman who was selling him due to moving away, I noticed that this Brazilian Rainbow Boa had a lot more speckling on his sides than my others but never really thought it could turn out to be anything special.

He was paired to a CB01 Female Brazilian Rainbow Boa called “Rio” who was a very mature un-bred female, the pair were introduced in April-May 2009 with locks being witnessed in May. Thankfully the pairing was succesful & “Rio” then went on to drop a gorgeous litter of 20 healthy live babies & 1 slug (infertile ova).

Upon removing the babies from the birthing box, we noticed that this litter was very varied with there being an array of colours/patterns.

We noticed that certain neonates stood out but didn’t want to disturb them too much so they were left to settle & have their first shed. After shedding we clearly noticed that nearly half of the clutch expressed the fathers pattern “Leopard Boy” which is heavy speckling of the sides, we also noticed that the neonates who inherited this pattern also had different head marking to the siblings which expressed the Normal Brazilian Rainbow Boa patterning.

I am hoping that this will become a proven morph as it has been passed on to around half of the litter & to test this theory, I will be doing the same pairing (Leopard Boy x Rio) once the female is in good condition to breed again. I have also kept back neonates to pair certain siblings together when they reach breeding size, this will be a long but exciting project for me which I hope proves out, there may even be a super phase to come?

Thought I'd say a few words about the Corn Snakes I have bought from Anthony. After many years of not breeding any corns I decided I'd like to just have a few again, but they had to be top quality high end morphs. I really wanted to get back into them at a hi morph level right away. The Bloodred Lavender mix really interested me, so I was lucky enough to see Anthonys ads, not only do these snakes fit in just nicely to my plans, but also will insure I have some great top quality corns to offer. The future looks really good. Thanks Anthony

I am so impressed with the my BRB, Anthony was very friendly and helped me with any questions I had, Along with helping me get a BRB which was in my price range. He also organized a courier for delivery which made all of the payment simple and easy. I would definitely recommend Anthony to anyone looking for BRB's
