    Brian, I have a question. I’ve noticed when you cut eggs you don’t pull the head out where jay from prehistoric pets does. Is there a reason you don’t? Or why he does?

  4. Fran Wi

    Fran Wi25 dagen geleden

    You are one of the greats in the community and inspire a ton of people into the hobby. With that you have one of the largest followings of all breeders, so when you put out misinformation its does a ton of damage in the community. You should know ghi isn't in a complex, let alone part of the blue eyed lucy. Idk if you were just having a bad day or what but you should definitely be better that that....

    Hi Brian . I love snakes and I like what you are trying to do with and about snakes . Brian is any chance that you could slow your roll down and just talk about just one snake so we can take it all in about one snake at a time mate.your talking too fast and I don't know about anybody else but you are starting to bore people as it is nearly coming out of your mouth like mumbo jumbo . Please Brian we want to learn all we can about your snakes and the like just not all of it in one show thank-you . ps: I hope I haven't upset you or anybody else that is watching your show.

    There actually are two websites where you can plug in different ball python genetics and see the chances of getting different combos :) as well as . I run genetics through both of them whenever I'm getting a snake and figuring out breeding plans!

    For the truly curious, World Of Ball Pythons is a VERY visual website and app that will teach you a bunch. And if you're a true snake person, make you drool and plan a breeding program so you can lay your grubby paws on some of the morphs they show, lol!

    Jc Zamora27 dagen geleden

    Sorry got a little confused. Is GHI and Mojave really allelic? Cause I've seen a few super GHI mojave and GHI BEL that are being sold on ball python markets. And i believe you can't have 3 genes in the same complex on 1 animal. Hope you could shed some light on this. Awesome clutch by the way.

  107. Jc Zamora

    Jc Zamora25 dagen geleden

    @MsOnly1Truth i did some googling my self and went down the rabbit hole. Even the soul sucker got a few debates whether it’s allelic or not. Kevin from nerd explained it on one vid but still can’t understand it

  108. MsOnly1Truth

    MsOnly1Truth25 dagen geleden

    I got confused when he said they were allelic, too! Granted, I'm not always on top of things with remembering what genes are allelic, but I just went on a googling spree and found a good page that lists all of the allelic combos (none of which are GHI and mojave):
