Leopard Phase

Leopard Boy

I 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, I noticed that this litter was very varied with there being an array of colours/patterns.

I 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 I clearly noticed that nearly half of the clutch expressed the fathers pattern “Leopard Boy” which is heavy speckling of the sides, I 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?

Testimonials

I was really impressed with the quality of the snakes. I've had mine for over a month now and it eats and sheds perfectly with an excellent temperament. Highly recommended.

I am absolutely delighted with the quality of service provided by Anthony. He was more than happy to answer all of my questions. The quality of the snake I have received is second to none. Anthony helped me choose the snake via photos and descriptions, to ensure I got exactly what I wanted. Anthony agreed to hold my snake for me until I was 100% happy with the setup I had provided, temps and humidity etc. Advice was always readily available for the best way to house and care for my snake, and on top of that the offer of a lifetime of advice is only a phone call away. Comprehensive feeding and shedding records were provided from birth, something that I intend to continue. I would recommend that anyone wanting a top quality BRB contact Anthony. I will certainly be contacting him in the future when I am ready to purchase a male for my new little girl.
