After many years, we finally hatched a Black Pastel Albino! We have dreamed about hatching one of these guys since we started breeding ball pythons, so it feels amazing to finally see one in person. We unfortunately only hatched one though, and he’s a boy, so we’re going to have to try again for hatching a female!
There are six other babies in the clutch, and one of them is an outstanding black pastel. Possibly the nicest example of a black pastel we’ve ever hatched! We wish we could keep him, but we don’t have the room, so he has been made available. If you’re a beginner ball python breeder, he would be an incredible addition to your collection.
This week, we received not one, but TWO dream snakes in the mail! Thank you to Patrick of MacKnight Stables and Jhun of Ballistic Pythons, the two incredible breeders we purchased these snakes from. We shot unboxing videos of both and put them up on our YouTube channel to share our excitement at receiving these two beautiful baby ball pythos.
The first snake who arrived is a Magma ball python, aka: a Red Stripe Clown, who came from Ballistic Pythons. The second snake is a Sunset, an exciting, rare ball python morph, from MacKnight Stables. We are so excited to expand our Clown projects and to take a leap into the Sunset morph! We’ll be doing update videos very soon with more about them once they’ve settled in, but if you’d like a preview, please take a look at our unboxing videos below!
August ended on a high note with Lilith, our Albino female, laying an 8 egg clutch! She was paired with Finn, our Black Pastel het Albino male, so we have high hopes of hatching a few Albino Black Pastel ball pythons! This is a clutch we’ve been working forward to for over 5 years, so we’re super excited for this clutch to hatch in late October.
In mid summer, our most anticipated clutch of the year hatched: The Blue Eyed Leucistic x Mojave clutch! We got three BEL ball pythons, two Lessers, and two Mojaves.
Why did this clutch not appear on our website? Because they all sold out within four hours of it being announced to our mailing list!
New babies are always announced on our mailing list the week before they are announced on social media and made available on our website and Morph Market account. In many cases, the babies sell out to the mailing list before they make it online to the public! If you’re looking for a ball python, we recommend signing up to the mailing list. We only send out messages when we get new babies, and you can unsubscribe at any time! Sign up here!
Our first clutch of 2020 has hatched! Six eggs, with three Highways, two Yellow Belly, and one Normal. At the time of writing this, all of the babies with the exception of one Highway are spoken for. It’s been so amazing seeing these guys in person. But WOW are these babies bitey!! The parents are both incredible eaters, so we’re hoping this means they’ve passed some of that onto their offspring! We’ll need to work with them a little more to get them more used to people, so please wish our fingers luck! (Curtis was bit five times trying to sex them!! It doesn’t hurt badly, but still, WOW!)
We got a video of the clutch, as well as some super fun footage of them hatching inside the incubator! Happy Canada Day!!
We’re excited to share our first foray into YouTube! Click on read more (below) to view our in-depth look at the Coral Glow Fire Woma clutch. Thank you so much to everyone who has subscribed, liked, and commented. We really put our hearts into this and are so happy people have liked the video!
Our Blue Eyed Leucistic clutch has also been laid! Nuala, our Mojave, laid seven big, healthy eggs yesterday! The father, Ansel, is a BEL, so we have a 50/50 chance at BEL babies. Three of the BELs have pre-hatch deposits already, so depending on what hatches, all of them may already be spoken for. We like to give our girls breaks from breeding so Nuala will be off next season, but we have other girls up to size who are ready to fill in. We may try to breed two BEL clutches as we can’t seem to keep them coming fast enough!
We have more clutches being laid late this month and early next month, and our first clutch of 2020 is hatching in approximately a month!
