lol and so begins round 2...Knowledge - The one thing you can give away freely while still keeping for yourself
its just silly that people put genetic name tags on animals that arent nearly proven.
especially calicos, ive worked with many "calico" bhp's its not known/proven to be a recessive trait, it take 2years minimum for the snake to turn cal. and in other sp. like cal ball pythons and retics etc its even more the opposite to whats displayed on that carpet.
not getting into a debate champ, just put the hard work in and cross it back to its siblings/father and see what happens i guess then if there is anything there think up a name that suits whatever trait your looking for.

i have a Question what does it really matter if its a calico or not. is it that you would just like to know because its a really strange pattern or that you would like to have your name to having the first one. i myself barely understand basic morphs so i could not say any more than its a beautiful snake and if it does have hatchlings that turn out similar or better i would love one.
What about a poor quality hypo coastal...

I saw your so called project ? Inconsistent story, not clear on what it is you are doing, no evidence to back up your assumptions etc etc. . . but instead of burning you to a cinder I let it be. Why because it is pointless !!
For such a poor Hypo I have been offered some seriously good money for her, I would be inclined to wait out future breeding before
carrying on like you have been. What is seen in the flesh is hard to reproduce in pictures although Derper herper (whom app is only 13) understood what I was referring to (nice to see) . While I have speculated I haven't assumed unlike others whom assumed it is just a Hypo etc. . . yet all the examples have done is shown me a lot of pretty Hypos. . . no washed out pigment just snakes with reduced black.
And as an after thought it was pointed out to me that retics that display the calico gene tend to be HYPO, unlike the Ball pythons or BHP's. So like seems to be said a lot from many who called out Hypo, maybe wait and see if anything proves out. . . . and I really dont give a rats sphincter what you call it

1. Santa Claus is made up. . sorry but live with it.
2. APS is not a Morph approval committee. . . or any other approval committee.
3. You are not on a Morph approval committee. . . . no one is seeking your approval.
4. There is a herp world outside of APS with so many cool things going on that is not and most likely never will be discussed here. . . why? because most of the serious guys feel no desire to share what they are doing to only have to debate it out with people with attitudes like the one you have displayed here.
5. I have shown one snake out of my collection that might turn out to be something more and then again it might not. . . why has it become such an obsession of yours to poo poo it when you ask me to send you more pics. remember this - "that calico looks pretty cool do you have anymore photos? what stage are you at with the project, how many do you have?" -PM from Citrus
And you had no manners in your PM's just a lot of can you send me more pics. . . try please and thank you.
6. I have spent 35+ years gaining knowledge on herps from extensive travel and field trips to conventional study of literature, a stint at a wildlife park and experience as a keeper.. . . You behave as though you have all this superior knowledge, how many years have you put in and where was your knowledge gained?
7. Morphs and designer snakes. Basic knowledge of inheritable traits and year 8 biology knowledge of genetics does not mean that you are capable breeding designer snakes. Understanding and insight from breeding experience is essential and then you need that ability to guess out the outcome. I have shown a few pics of my selectively bred Jungles that have distinct goals in mind, are you able to produce quality looking sibs that you bred?
Anyway. . . after just reading through the line breeding thread I have seen more conflicting stories about your project, and yes I do have other things to do than wait around for a reply. . . I have a life and was of enjoying it for the rest of that weekend.
Here is the story about your project thus far
Pm from Citrus - I can't put photos up as I'm at work but will when I get home.... The only male hyper Darwin in australia
Post from Citrus - (new morphs thread) - Rp/hyper Darwin project
Q from Sigridshurte - Citrus that a nice snake! Were you able to produce melanistic snakes ?
Reply from Citrus - It's not actually part of my melanistic Darwin project as he is dark brown and not black. He is the second dark animal produced from this line which is pure rp darwin. this year he is being put back over his daughter to hopefully get a super rp it seems to be co Dom so if it proves out the super form should be something that looks jag but with the neuro problems. Well that's the hopefully out come. As for the dark look of him might be a bonus pop up just have to wait and see.
Question from Stryker (line breeding thread) - By the way can I get one off those Darwins of you?
Response from Citrus (" ") - I don't breed them every year but will be next year as I have some new wc males coming.
(but you said that you are putting him over his daughter this season)
I asked you a question in regards to the project and this is what you said-
Yes a rp project, A standed Darwin is banded not striped down it's back. he has got very dark over last 12months but you can still see his pattern on the back of his neck. The other dark one that I know of came from different clutch same parents. As for being melanistic I'm not holding my breath that it will be rec. or co Dom.
So since when have darwins not come in a striped form? You have the nerve to badger every thing I post as well as plague this thread with pointless rude comments and all you can produce to back up you claims of superiority is a standard looking darwin that you claim is RP because it has a stripe???? So where is the RP/melanistic project? as I said inconsistant You should have stuck to your Melanistic story it at least was more believable. Even if I think it looks like a dirty brown snake thats coming into shed.
Last point worth considering, the herp world is relativly small it is not wise to go burning bridges as it is likely to come back and bite you in the rectum.
