***** Super Tiger from Baldogos -Because they breed for tractability first. I have two of their females.
***** Classic tiger line bred from Hermann line- Because it is the calm giant that started it all. I have one male bred by the Baldogos
***** Lavender super tiger from the Baldogos- Why? It isn't all about morphs but about a beautiful giant that can be kept in a family home for life. The lavender super will be my last acquired retic.
:
:The Purple Phase Albino. ***** 5 stars for this incredible looking snake with unparalelled purple background. Reasons for choice: Magnificent beauty. Docility.

:The White Phase Albino. ***** 5 stars for this stunningly beautiful snake. Reasons for choice: Outstanding contrasting coloration. Dazzling beauty. Docility.

:The Super Tiger. **** 4 stars for this beautiful banana yellow retic with black velvet linear stripes and orange or black wedges or dots on their sides (based on my Bob Clark supers that I have yet to see paralelled). Reasons for choice: This snake's beauty increases with age. The great diversity in the appearance of the offspring, some have gray or white bands along their sides, others have tangerine orange wedges and still others have black dots with gray centers. Often there is a single narrow black dorsal stripe, and sometimes three very broad black stripes. I have seen body coloration ranging from brite yellow like mine, to a deep bronze like many of the Baldogos. This snake offers a great variety for widely differing tastes.

::I would appreciate if all the forum members could take a few short minutes to respond to this retic 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 dwarf phases as well as normal phases. Here is a partial list of available morphs: Albino (purple phase, lavender phase, white phase, type 2 phase, albino dwarfs and tigers and future albino supers) Super tgers, tigers, calicos, striped, granite backed and any other phase that I am forgetting.
::Here's the survey,.... If all these retics 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 retic 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.
