In Reply to: Re: Would a Leu.TX Rat x indigo be possible?? posted by Dwight Good on November 28, 2002 at 13:42:42:
::Do you think I should just buy a regular tx rat that is het for leucistic and red phase? Regalreptiles has a few of those that I was considering since everyone says not to do what I want to try.
:In this case I think that would be best, but that's just my opinion. If you really want to use the leucistic gene in your hybridization then by all means do so. All of us are different and have varying opinions, which is kinda what keeps things interesting. Go for it!
::Heres what I wanted to accomplish with my hybrid play. I was hoping to find something to cross my leucy with that is Larger(in girth) that a texas rat. I wanted to eventually (f2 or later)be able to produce white(leucy)babies that would be a lot fatter/bigger than normal rats. Thats why I wanted to cross breed it with something fairly big like a fox snake, indigo, etc.. Since you seem to be a expert...Is there any snakes you know of that would give me that result I want? Thanks
:I'm definitely no expert.. or was that a jab at my previous response? Doesn't matter, figured I would get flamed anyway.. lol. AFAIK, the largest NA colubrids are indigos, bulls, and obsoleta rat snakes. If you are looking for girth, why not try a ball python?? Now THAT would be an interesting hybrid!!
