Melanistic green tree pythons are being bred for more and more black.  The colors are truly stunning.  Below are a few of the animals we are working with.


Male ID# 05188

Captive bred at our facility 8 September 2005.

Dam: 00069     Sire: 02152

This male was the result of crossing one of our TW blue line males (Mr. Blue x Carolina) with one of our PNG line females.  We hope to be pairing him up in the spring of 2008.

This male was paired with a female (Shade) owned by Chris Haight in spring of 2008.  She produced a clutch of 13 eggs and they are expected to hatch around the first of May.  This clutch began hatching on 29 April 2008.  Click here to see images of the neonates.

In 2009 we entered into another project with Chris Haight.  This time pairing him to a female named Smurffette from the Walsh & Holland "Mr. Blue x Carolina" clutch.  This 2009 pairing represents one of the highest concentrations of blue genetics to date.   Here is the pedigree for the pairing.

We also paired this male with one of our mixed heritage females, ID# 00111, in 2009.  Unfortunately only one offspring survived.  Click here to see images of the female and the neo.

This male is being bred to a couple females in 2010.  One is an undocumented TW blue line female on loan from Kevin Kopf and the other is one of our 2005 offspring (sibling to Super Man and 05079) from Blue Max.

Female ID# 07079

Hatched 24 June 2007.

Dam: 03032     Sire: 02126

This female was produced by a mite phase pairing between a Maxwell line mite phase male and a (TW x PNG) female.

This female was bred to  a melanistic line male ID# 08019 in 2012.  A clutch of 17 eggs was laid on 29 November 2012.  Click here for images of the female and her clutch.

         

 

Female ID# JMMV08001-5

CBB by John Mack in 2008

Dam: FemCl1    Sire:


Female ID# CHRW0904

CBB Chris Haight

Dam: Smurffette     Sire: 05188

Pedigree in PDF.

This animal was the result of a breeding loan with Chris Haight.  The dam, Smurffette, was from the well known Mr. Blue x Carolina pairing (by Trooper Walsh and John Holland) and the sire, 05188, was produced by one of her siblings.  This is a great concentration of blue genetics.that is showing good melanistic traits as well.
