In Reply to: Burmese Morph Survey. Please Respond. posted by BrianSmith on May 01, 2003 at 17:20:13:
This was a very tough choice because unlike the retics there are many many equally stunning phases. And while I can't rank the normals with the three choices below, the regular phase burmese will always remain one of my favorites in sheer beauty.
The Granite Burmese. ***** 5 Stars for this unique and incredibly patterned and colored burmese. Reasons for choice: The wild and beautifully contrasting pattern including the uniquely patternless head with handsome, strategically placed spots and freckles like poetic visual punctuation. To add to this they often have a stunning green tinge to their coloration. And to add even more optical flavor their blackish bubble eyes contrast nicely with their beige heads.
The Blonde Burmese. ***** 5 stars for this incredible looking python. I can't wait for Bob to produce these. I sometimes will look at the pictures in the magazines or online for great periods of time, just longing for the day. Reasons for choice: Should be obvious. A snake like no other. Perhaps part of it is the anticipation of something "new". But it's beauty speaks for itself.
The Burmese/Retic Hybrid. ***** 5 stars for this phenominal python coctail too. While sometimes not overly attractive,.. those that I have seen that ARE attractive are mind blowing. Almost indescribable. Reasons for this choice: Sheer unique beauty and bizzare pattern and color. Retic eyes in a burmese-like snake...... invaluable.
:I would appreciate if all the forum members could take a few short minutes to respond to this burmese morph market survey. It isn't just because I am curious as to what everyone likes, but it will play a direct role in just how much I will breed each phase in the future. Don't forget to include all phases as well as normal phases and related molurus species (ceylonese & indian). Here is a partial list of available morphs: Albino granites, granites, albino labyrinths, labyrinths, albino green/patternless, green/patternless, blonde (if Bob ever produces them) hybrid burmese rock python, hybrid burmese retic, and any other phase that I am forgetting.
:Here's the survey,.... If all these burmese had the EXACT same monitary value and say all of them were available for 100.00 each,... if you could get any three,... what would they be? Please rate each choice with a 5 star system and list a reason or two as to why you would want this particular snake. For everyone that takes part in this survey I will put you in a list to get 10% off of any one snake from me next year, regardless of value. Just make sure to email me with your name and contact info. Thanks in advance to all that take part in this very important market research that will benefit not only every burmese breeder that reads this, but even the rescue shelters that will have to deal with fewer abandoned snakes as a direct result of something that helps to only produce snakes that are in demand.
