    I have had that twice. Tiny litters with 3 or 4 babies and a bunch of slugs. They never seem to be good litters. Those two were both litters where I did not try to breed the female. But, I have had one year an Anery female gave birth to one Anery with a non-anery breeding. I have heard of that kind of thing happening many times actually to other people.

    How often have you had retained sperm births? Like an unsecesful breeding the previous year. Then have both pop up the following year?

    The double Daddy possibility is so remote that I don't really consider it a real possibility. I know of no instance where it has happened in a Reptile of any kind. Though Dr. Booth knew of it in something but I don't remember what. Still a first time Boas and to have a Key West Motley het Prodigy would be fine with me!

    Now its Larry being the instigator I can't wait to see what comes out of this litter. You might have really outdone yourself this time Jefe.

    This is the ovulating Prodigy Female:



    Though she is quite dark in this picture, she is a raving beauty to me!

    She was bred by three males! Three males? You ask. Yes three males. In this case I will be able to tell at first glance who fathered every baby in that litter and so will you! I don't think this has ever been done before. It is most likely that only one male will have sired all the puppies she is carrying, but there is that possibility. Here is the group that bred her and what they will each produce.

    1. Hypo Motley. A Hypo Motley can ONLY produce Hypos and Motleys. Any of either of those and we know the Hypo Motley is the Daddy of those babies.

    2. Prodigy Male. Of course the only thing that any of his sperm happens to create with her eggs will be a Prodigy.

    3. Key West Male. The only thing that a Key West can make are Key West babies and normals.

    Pretty nifty huh? I am hoping to make in one litter three visual dominant or co-dominant mutations all het for Prodigy and maybe a few Prodigy Boas too. The world certainly needs more of them!





    She is by the way... "Loaded to the NECK bone"!




    Oops, I almost forgot... 25 days to go!

    Those are insane Jeff. I'm guessing those are all holdbacks?

    By the way, that little guy was only in with her for the last week. The first three months she had two other males back and forth who show three visual mutations between them. All these combinations are such that I will know which male fathered every single baby in the litter. That is assuming I do get some babies. Five different visuals possible including "normal". Any normals will still be het Prodigy and will have come from this little Key West boy. I hope I am fortunate enough to have a little bit of everything, with at least one male of each visual. Then again, I guess that's pretty greedy isn't it?



    BY the way, the Colombian import, the "Purple P" ovulated again!



    That was yesterday and some what unexpected. Last time I bred her was two years ago when she ovulated Jan. 27th. SO I figured it was most likely just too late, though she was looking quick chunky. Here are a couple babies from that litter two years ago:

    I'm sending some extra will-ment your way Mr Jeff. Every spare ounce of it I've got. Maybe if I also chant that Lady Gaga Ra Ra Ooo La La thing as some sort of incantation..
    Thanks for the "will-ment"! It's clearly worked!

    Typical of Boas that are just about to turn gravid, my Prodigy female was looking really dingy while at the same time she is looking pretty chubby yesterday evening.
