Hi bushbaby thanks for the compliment about the hypo. I have ordered one of the suri's from constantine so maybe when the time's right i may consider trying to breed hypo surinames.

Nope Bushbaby does not have any of those. A hypo surinam cross would be an intergrade seeing as they do not occur anywahere near each other. Possibly not the best idea.

We do have a whole bunch of albinos and hets as well as a super salmon and a possible super salmon. The super salmon male is het for Albino and Kahl stripe as well so once he reaches breeding size we will be going for killer sunglows. We can look into trades when that happens?
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

Hey bushviper. I did do a search in google and i think a few people have bred a hypo with a suriname. It would indeed create hybrids. Since the suri is a bcc and the hypo bci but from a pic i've seen the snake looks a lot better than a normal hypo having a really nice tail which it must be getting from having a bit of suri blood in it. Will wait and see what happens in the years to come but i'm definately gonna try breed pure surinames one day when i have a beautiful pair

I don't get it. Why would you want a Hypo Surinam? Surinams are known to have those awesome red tails. Who spoil that?

I also ordered a few Suriname Boas from Constantine, those are some of the most beautiful Suriname's I have ever seen.

I spoke with Constantine recently and they will also be bringing in some Peruvians and possibly some Brazilians in the near future, I will be sure to get a pair of those, Peruvians are absolutely stunning snakes and are much harder to come by than a Suriname.

And the best thing is they not these rubbish German imports that are never actually pure bloods.

I will be sure to post some pics of the Snakes I get from Constantine soon.

Who is Constantine?

Quite frankly, I am not a huge fan of Peruvians. Seen too many that look like Bci. Surinams, or nothing is my motto. lol

just out of interest sake, and this is a question I am asking out of pure ignorance, if he did breed his suri with a hypo, and then a year down the line he bred it with a suri would the babies be pure suriname? even if it was bred with a hypo in the past? or will the hypo ruin that?

I don't know what peruvians you were looking at but they most certainly don't look anything like a BCI, at all!
