  • Opinion on Hypo Jungle Morph

    First time posting on the forum so hello all!

    Hopefully after a bit of advice :-)

    I've taken a gamble on this female boa as I don't know the lines she has come from. However she's been sold to me as a Hypo Jungle. Now as far as i'm aware from her markings and colouration i'd agree but this is my first boa (The rest of my snakes are Royals). She has black speckles and a few broken black outlines on her tail markings so has a degree of Hypomelanism I would say.

    Her back pattern is very Irregular and broken/ non uniform.

    Would appreciate your thoughts!? The first photo is directly after a shed.

        I would say she is what you bought her as...a hypo jungle. She's very pretty, congratulations and welcome to RTB!

          Thanks for helping to confirm Zamora, she seems to be a great natured little snake!

          Her feeding response is night and day compared to the Royals haha

              I would say yes-if you bought it from a reputable breeder. I'm only slightly hesitant because of a few things. More peppered, less crisp coloring and an odd pattern compared to what I'm used to seeing in jungles.

                It has a strong Arabesque look to it. ie: peppering, pattern and head stripe.

                  After looking at photos of Hypo Arabesques she does look more like them than a Jungle Pattern. Infact almost identical to a couple I've seen.

                    Hypo does weird things to the pattern, jungle does weird things to the pattern, and when you combine them sometimes you get a kind of awesome chaotic mix. Yours is a great example.

                      Definitely unique and very cool.

                      I think if you wanted to be positive you'd have to go back to the seller and ask to see pictures of the parents and litter mates. That would probably answer it real quick because most of what we're doing is just speculation.
