I like them all, but I'm particularly fond of the Burmball.

Feels like a bit of a waste to cross a ETB with and ATB, but I guess each to his own.

Thanx for sharing.

What size ball would you use in making the burmball

Just to add, I am quite fond of the superball hybrid "blood x ball"

Shaun, when making a Burmball, I assume you just have to make sure the female is the Burm and the Male the Ball.

If the female were the Ball, I think she might not survive the gestation period due to the size of the eggs. Or the male could even damage the female internally if he is too big.

But I'm not speaking from experience, just common sense.

So what I'm getting at is the Ball does not need to be bigger than normal, nor the Burm smaller than normal.

Thought as much, but my mind was just picturing this little male ball with a huge burm
