:I am a ball python morph guy, who has 1.2 hogg island boas, and debating on whether or not to get a trio of nice boa morphs. So, what is:

:1 super salmon, possible super salmon, and are they the same as a hypo? super from salmon to salmon breeding and the offspring that become dominant rather than incomplete dominant(co-dom) unable to tell visually. possible super salmon-same as above until proven dominant. Some people view orange-tail hypos and salmons as different, but as has been shown there isn't much difference from one or the other generally.
:2 what two morphs make the ghost?---boa and ball ghosts are different:) Ghost is the combination of Anerythristic and Hypomelanistic. Therefore a dh ghost is a Hypo that is het for anerythristic. You will never have a dh ghost that is normal in appearance. The hypo gene is not recessive as it is in some ball morphs if I'm thinking correctly(thought I've seen het hypo balls?!?!)
:3 Is the Sharp strain still popular, and any snows or sunglows been produced with this strain? I'm not sure how popular they are, but some still desire them for sure, they're just not near as common and most don't want to pay the price difference. As far as I know nobody has produced snows or sunglows with this line yet, though I'm sure people are very close if not. Hope that answers your questions. Take care!
