    Lol i suppose any publicity is good publicity. But seriously no one yet knows who owns this line or when it will be available on the market, so advertising couldn't be the purpose of this thread.

    Maybe not advertising as such, but this thread is definately building hype!!

    3,244 views since Tuesday :shock:

    Also, in the first post, bapi said this new line was "completely unrelated to Blondie and her descendants" yet in his most recent post, his comment was "how closely related or otherwise they are to Blondie is impossible to say than for any other Darwin carpet - what happens in the wild stays in the wild :)".

    Isn't the second statement kind of conflicting with the first? :|

    I'd really be interested in some more information concerning this other line of albino's if possible.
    And of course love to see some more pics if available. I never ever tire of looking at albinos :D

    Whoa.
    "You might wanna provide a bit more evidence before you go ahead and defame someone else's line, from the pictures I have seen so far...blondey certainly looks to be the greater snake"

    No I am not slandering blondey's line. She and her descendents are very beautiful & healthy snakes. To be clear I have never seen an ugly albino. Nor have i every seen an unhealthy one.

    I am not saying this line is better, just a different origin. I did say that they seemed to be bigger and brighter coloured on average compared to the (limited) average of those that I have examined of Blondies line. BUT I followed up by saying that this is unlikely to be due to the mutation rather it is likely to be due to the natural variation in Darwin carpets. Darwin carpets vary a lot.

    Stephen, will you be taking Doc up on his offers to see exactly what your line produces with the Southern Cross line? Wouldn't that then give everyone a better idea of whether it is a new line? All this genetics stuff goes waaaayyyy over my head, so that's about as technical as I get :oops::lol:

    Sorry, no there are supposedly many more, Bapi said "I have examined many examples of both blondies strain and this strain."

    Actually I am not the owner or breeder of these snakes - just their vet. It's not my call. I will have to see what their owners think.

    Well if you do then that is good. But i don't think it is the person who you think it is and even if it is the person you think it is, there are not that many people who know.

    There are plenty of "Blondie" origin albinos available so i imagine if the owner wanted to cross to that line he easily could. I imagine one reason for holding the aniamls off the market is to keep them pure to keep control of the breeding of that line.

    Hi Colin, for that brilliant idea you win a pair of albinos from my stunning pair of Simons line when they breed, which by the way have a beautiful lemon & lime colouring, the packaging will be very expensive though ha ha.
    cheers, Paul.
