    I am not the best with the genetics so I am posting some questions.

    1. What boas does it take to get a motley?
    2. What would you get by breeding a het snow to a ghost?
    3. What would you get if you bred a het snow to anery?
    4. What would you get if you bred a het anery to anery?
    5. What about a het snow to a sunglow?
    6. and where can I find a really comprehensive guide to snake genetics and morphs?

    1. Motley is a co-dominant trait, so you need a motley or super motley to a normal. Not sure if any super motleys have been fertile though.

    2. 25% ghost pos het moonglow
    25% Hypo het ghost pos het moonglow
    25% anery pos het snow
    25% het anery pos het snow

    3. 50% anery het snow
    50% double het snow

    4. 50% anery
    50% het anery

    5. 25% sunglow pos het moonglow
    25% hypo pos het moonglow
    25% albino pos het snow
    25% het albino pos het snow

      Man, you are throwing way to much at us LOL.
      Here is a link that will help you big time. It is from our very own Chad Horne from Arabesqueboas.com.

        Re: genetics

        Well some of these depend on what you mean. There isn't really a "het for snow" because a snow boa is an anery albino. So most people will call a normal appear boa that carries the albino and anery genes a double het for snow, but an albino boa het for anery or an anery het for albino are also in essence "hets for snow."

        If you use the typical DH for snow then that with a ghost could yield:

        12% Het. Anery,
        12% Het. Anery, Het. Hypo, DH Ghost
        12% Het. Anery, Het. Albino , DH snow
        12% Het. Anery, Het. Albino , Het. Hypo, TH moonglow
        12% Homozygous Anery, Anery
        12% Homozygous Anery, Het. Hypo, Ghost
        12% Homozygous Anery, Het. Albino , Anery het albino
        12% Homozygous Anery, Het. Albino , Het. Hypo, Ghost het albino

        DH snow to anery:

        25% Het. Anery,
        25% Het. Anery, Het. Albino, DH snow
        25% Homozygous Anery,
        25% Homozygous Anery, Het. Albino, Anery het albino

        So then a DH snow to a sunglow:

        12.5% Het. Albino ,
        12.5% Het. Albino , Het. Hypo, DH ghost
        12.5% Homozygous Albino ,
        12.5% Homozygous Albino , Het. Hypo, DH sunglow
        12.5% Het. Anery, Het. Albino , DH snow
        12.5% Het. Anery, Het. Albino , Het. Hypo, TH moonglow
        12.5% Het. Anery, Homozygous Albino , Albino het anery
        12.5% Het. Anery, Homozygous Albino , Het. Hypo, Sunglow het anery

        Remember that with the DH for snow to the anery, you can't tell which of the normal appearing boas are just het for anery or also het albino. So this is where the %s you see come in. They would be called het for aneries 50% het albino, because they have a 50% chance at carrying the albino gene as well.

        As far as books go, Designer Morphs by John Berry is no longer in print, but is an excellent book if you can find it. There are also many online resources as mentioned, plus the "What do you get when you breed" sticky on the Genetics Forum here.

          Also you have to have a Motley to make a Motley.

          It is a Codominant trait
