The whole numbering system is whacky. A f2 boa is the result of breeding 2 salmon boas together. out of every 4 boas on average you will get 1 normal, 2 heterozygous hypos, and 1 homozygous hypo. The only true way to tell if a hypo is dominant (homozygous, having 2 hypo genes) is by breeding it to a normal, if all of the babies are hypos then you have a dominant hypo. even f4 hypos are not neccesarily dominant or super hypos. Just buy a really good looking hypo and go from there. Don't buy it because it is f4, f3, f100000000 buy it because it looks nice. Because if you breed an f3 to a normal you don't get f3s. it is just a marketing thing that is probably used improperly anyways.
