:which is the best partner to have interesting offspring, for a female honduran? possible choice:
:- albino striped kingsnake
:- albino corn
:- oketee corn
:- hypo corn
:- albino sonoran gopher
:- albino striped kingsnake--- has been done. Called Jurassic Milks. They also have Fla king in them but they make great hybrids. Andy Barr did them and said he wasted the breeding potential of 9 female Hondurans to get 1 female to breed. Not easy to accomplish.
:- albino corn-- Probalby the best bet. Still hard to do. Andy Barr did this a couple years ago and I think he got 1 female and the rest male hets. I believe he used a striped snow corn though. Good potential.
:- oketee corn-- I think the albinism is better than this.
:- hypo corn-- There are already hypo Hondurans and I think they are better than what this could ever be.
:- sinaloan-- Been done. I had these years ago . Bill Gillingham out of Calf did them. Kind of neat but nothing special nowadays.
:- albino sonoran gopher-- Don't care for the hybrids I've seen with Bull and Gopher in them except the ones that were Corn x Gopher. This however hasn't been done so who knows?
I feel albinism is the best bet but you need an extra plus such as a pattern mutation to make it more interesting. This is why the Jurrassics are so cool. Lots of variation. I would try and get a Zig Zag Albino Corn or a Striped Albino Corn to use.
Good luck. HDEAN
