Granite Irian Jaya x Normal Irian Jaya

Postby Mitton » Sun Jan 11, 2015 4:21 pm

I put my Granite Irian Jaya male on one of my dark Irian Jaya females. I managed to get 10 babies, 6 females and 4 males, all 100% Het Granite.
I could not believe how big the babies were when they hatched, almost as big as my yearling Jungles.

Here is a recent pic of the male Granite:

This is what the female looks like.

Some crappy pics of the babies.

I did not know the zebras would make such big babies. Those are massive if you look at the newsprint under them. The odds were also great. I have only ever seen this one granite. Do you think the babies will turn dark as they age?

Thanks guys.

BV, the babies from this female's previous clutch were rather dark, if these babies turn out darker and make darker babies then it could be very interesting to see the influence in Granite.

The Granite male had a bit of an injury on his nose from bumping into the tweezers when grabbing food a while back and I was a bit worried if something was to happen to him I would only sit with the Jag Het female, so I decided to breed him late in the season. He is now perfect after his last shed (only a small scar) but I am happy with these babies.

Yes, these are Carpet Pythons.

They are all basically Irian Jaya Carpets and the male in the first pic is a morph being a Granite Irian Jaya. Granites are recessive genes meaning these babies will all carry the genes from both parents but not show the Granite genes. If these babies are bred together 25% of their babies will be Granite, 50% of the babies will be Het (Heterozygous) for Granite and 25% of the babies will just be normal Irian Jayas.

They are pythons so no venom.

Congrats Eugene

Seems you are having a good year so far! Must be the first het granites bred in the country. Can't wait to see what the following generation looks like.

Did you hold back all the hets last season? And what are your future plans for them (breeding projects)?

Looking good as ever!

Yep, kept back all the Hets.
Lost my female Jaguar Het Granite a few months ago so will have to raise these and breed them together and to dad and see what can be produced, hoping some of them are dark like mom and then will see what that does when Granite is produced from darkest pair.
