Patternless Emeralds

 

Patternless emeralds are occasionally imported from Surinam and Guyana.  Some reports have these animals occurring in small, isolated populations and others claim they occur randomly in all populations along side otherwise normal looking individuals.   Either way, we find them to be very unique and striking looking animals.  Our goal is to breed animals that are similar in appearance to produce offspring with these same unique characteristics.


Female ID# 99149

This is a completely patternless green animal.   No evidence of saddles can be found anywhere on this animal.  It's truly a striking individual!  Very unlike any of the patternless animals that normally have deep green coloration where the white saddles would occur.

This female was paired with the patternless male, 01005, below in spring of 2003.  She produced a nice litter of 10 healthy babies and two infertile ova on 23 August 2003.  Click here to view pictures of the litter.  To our knowledge this is the first successful patternless to patternless pairing in the U.S.

In 2005 we repeated the above pairing.  A litter of 16 offspring were born in August of 2005.  Click here to view images of the litter.

This female was paired with the same patternless male, 01005, in 2008.  She produced a litter on 9 September 08.  Click here for images of the female and the neonates.


 

Female ID# 00013

This is a very bizarre looking individual.   The normally white saddle areas are oval in shape and have an almost ghostly appearance.  This is the first and only individual we have ever seen like this.

             

This female was bred to male 01005 in 2004.  A litter of 8 offspring and 11 infertile ova was produced on 5 December 2004.  Click here to see images of the female and her litter.

This female was bred to male 01005 again in 2006 and she produced a nice litter of 11 offspring and 4 infertile ova on 15 November 2006.  Click here to see images of the female and her litter.
