Butter Corn cross to Banded Cal King referred to as Jungle Corns

Speckled King cross to Eastern(Chain) King, these are intergrades

Speckled King to Cal King, these are intergrades

Ok so this what these pairings produced, please don't ask me to justify these breedings, i never bred them, they are all for sale.

Pretty animals, the speckled king crosses are just awesome, love how they've come out on both projects.
The the jungle corns aren't as appealing, but still that's only by comparison to the others.
Thanks for sharing.

Fred, I will have to disagree with you, haha.

I feel that the King intergrades are a waste (no offense Sly, each to his own) as they look pretty normal and unimpressive. I would prefer pure Speckled Kings above any of these intergrades.

On the other hand, the Jungles have potential as they now carry the amel and caramel genes, so breeding sibs together could give you amel Jungles, caramel Jungles and butter Jungles.

The second generation also sometimes pops out something unique in terms of looks, so one also has that surprise to look forward to.

Thanx for sharing Sly.

Yes chaps, i personally don't do hybrids but do like the look of some( Puffie cross Gaboon) and that Retic cross Burm that Bob Clark bred is smoking) but each to their own.

Those Jungle corns look like pretty normal corns to me. I have my doubts about them.

The others I have seen before. The problem is that Chainmark kings and Cal kings would never intergrade naturally. The Speckled might actually normally meet up with Californian kingsnakes.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.
