As of this writing (02/15/00) the Sunglow Boa has not been produced. This
morph will be the product of breeding an Hypo-melanistic Boa heterozygous for
Albinism. These "double-hets" are produced by breeding a
Hypo-melanistic Boa to an Albino Boa. When this "Double Het."
is bred to an Albino Boa, 25% or more of the offspring should be Sunglow.
When two "Double Hets" are breed together the litter should yield
50% or more Sunglow Boas. The current speculation is that the Sunglow Boa will be
very intensely colored with vibrant pinks and reds. Below
you will find a photo of both an Albino Boa breeding a Hypo-melanistic
Boa...creating "double hets" for Sunglow.

Reptile and amphibian expos, symposiums, zoo and museum exhibitions and other educational events are great
