I was just wondering...
What type of morph, if any, would be good for beginning breeding garters. I currently have a w/c female eastern garter (caught this spring). This was my game plan- catch a male garter and keep it just long enough to make mine gravid. Then, when it gives birth, keep one or two of the nicest and clearest marked individuals. Then, in a year or two, get a male of some abberent morph and try breeding hets. hets could be bred to get both the recessive morph and more hets. The offspring would most likel be sold to local pet stores. I know of at least one that might take them. I dont think it should be to hard to offer captive bred garters to the small-time herp-dealing pet shops in my area. Anyway, i was thinking about (when it's time) what type of morph would be in high enough demand that i would get a good price, but not expensive enough that no one would want to buy them. im on a limited budget, so probably something under $50. I guess that limits it to Florida Blue, melanistic, blais peach, or a low-red blais flame or erythristic. Remember, This is allin the future. I havent worked things all the way out yet. anyway, input is greatly appreciated.
