The parents were unrelated captive bred '97 animals. They were produced by Rich Ihle but I purchased them from a local friend of his. I don't have any locality information on these but he said that he produced one that was even more yellow than my adult male. I tried to track him down with no luck. Due to the amount of orange on them, I personally feel that there is some Mexican ssp somewhere in the lineage. I have a male Mexican ssp. that I may breed back into the line to freshen up the genetics. I haven't really seen any other animals that would do justice to my project, although there must be some out there somewhere.
:Your spilotes are incredible! You mentioned that you thought the specimen in the link I posted resembled the spilotes that come from Guyana. Do you have any locality info on your high yellow line. They have some nice orange like some of the mexican spilotes but they obviously have a lot more yellow than any I've seen from there.
: Thanks for the great pics,
::Well, since printroom kind of ruined the thread below, I thought I would take new pics of a couple young ones I produced and upload them to my imageevent account. The top pic is one from 2002. So far this one is the best, lots of orange. The second pic is from the same parents but in 2001. She is nice but her sibling sister is just a tad better but in blue at the moment. 2004 will allow me to line breed. At this point in the game, I only have the one adult pair and an unrelated male. Still looking for a nice adult female, any appearance, just healthy.
