      Default Sought after genetics

      I am new to breeding but not to owning red tail boas. I am looking into sought after genetics. I currently have a 2015 female ghost het for albino. I’m looking to go the moon glow direction. I would also like to experiment with some motley but have heard super motleys rarely live to adulthood. Is this an issue with 50% motley. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Most Super motleys are doomed and very rarely reach adulthood,
      As the Motley gene is a co dominant one , your snake canít be het or (50% )for it ,it is a full motley,
      only recessive genes can be het for meaning you need both parents to be carying the recessive gene, ie albino to produce a visual
      Hope this helps
      Cheers Rich

      So if I get a Motley male, none of the offspring will be visual motley if the famale is not Motley?

      No motley is co dominant gene .
      so No matter what you breed it with you will get some visual motley babies

      If itís a jungle (co Dom)female you should get motleyís,jungle motleys as well as normals and jungle babies and if you bred with a hypo (co Dom)boa you will get some hypo, hypo motleys, motleys and some normals ,
      If your motley male is carrying the albino gene and so is the female , then you should get motleys, normals , albino and albino motleys and all the non albino babies will be 66% het for albino but if the female is visual albino then the babies will 100% het for albino

      there is a good morph calculator on line , that will give you a rough percentage of what you should expect from a paring
      , when I bred my motley last to a normal female, she had two motleys out the 5 babies she had, there was possibly more but 7 was slugs,
      hope this isnít too confusing it takes some getting used too

      Thank you Richyboa72. I appreciate the input. I just wanted to make sure I wasnít going to make a litter that had negative effects from the motley genes.
