PostSubject: I need some help with this...   Tue Apr 10, 2012 5:11 pm

My bf and I are looking for a super female to breed with our spinner blast. Someone we know has offered a sub adult female white diamond, which is russo/russo. He says that russo is on the same allele as lesser and butter and that the combos should therefore be similar.

Although World of Ball Pythons has Russo Leucistic on their morph list, they have no information about this snake whatsoever, and the generator doesn't work with it because they have no pictures of the combos.

Can someone help me find combo pics...or can someone who is a member of bp.net ask on the forum for me? I really need some info and am frustrated by how little I can find.

From what I understand Russo does work similar to the Butter to Lesser gene. I'll see if I can find a thread for you.

Thanks, Don. Those links were very helpful. However, I am still left in total confusion about snakes that are not just the russo het leucistic or the white diamond itself. I want to know what the russo gene would do in combination with, say, pastel and spider. Would it look like a butter/pastel/spider, or would it be different?

It seems to me the russo gene comes from the lemon het leucsistic gene i would try so of the combos your looking at trying usings the lemon het choice over the russo choice

this using info gathered off world of pythons

Yes I figured it out finally, but they still don't have any pictures on WoBP yet...why don't they keep up with it better.

They do their best. They have a ton up there but every so often i find a gene that doesnt really have much on it like this one. Maybe more people need to send the pictures

Well I did learn a lot today, and it's not the female I want to go with for this particular project.

Do you think it's interesting that most leucistics, no matter the combination, end up being worth about the same amount--$1000?

I have noticed that, it seems a bit odd sometimes.

I've also noticed that males and females are usually around the same price. A sub adult White Diamond female (800 grams) costs $2000. For a new line of leucistic...nearing breeding size females...that is dang CHEAP!

Well I for one will be owning one in the future, but I don't see the point of a leucy male ball python when better combos can be made, regardless of which traits went into the making of the snake. I think a female super butter leucy would be nice...and maybe a white diamond in the future.

Yeah I wouldn't mind a few different leucy genes. I am currently working with just a fire ball male but will hopefully be able to trade for an unrelated female or will buy one to get luecys from them.
