Thanks, Hubbs. Because of your willingness to share and teach, you've opened up a whole new world for me. :thumb:

And Brad, I could use the photo of that king you found in your yard. I just need your full name for photo credit. You can send it to me if you like or post it here or in a PM. My add is ttyson86 (( at )) aol dot com.

Hey Ross. I really enjoy your site. Very informative and it is obvious you spent a lot of time on it. I also enjoy it because I am from the same general area. I showed your site to my girl and we concluded we need to find local kings to put on your site. If I would have found this sooner I could have had my girl take a "natural" shot of that king they found at universal studios. Again, good job on the site. :thumb:

Yeah Ross,
Killer site! I know I gotta get you those hypo images, and some other's as well. As soon as i get as much of my database entries in, for the 011 deadline, I'll get on it. Berdoo is way under-representated ... and that just CAN NOT STAND. BERDOO RULES!!!.... well... not really, it's actually the butthole of SoCal.. but hey...everybody's gotta come from SOMEWHERE... :crazyeyes: :lol: :lol: jim

Thanks a lot, KichiMark. I'm glad its help inspire you to find some kings and get some images. I am always looking for contributors to the site. A Cal king found at Universal Studios, that's cool.

Thanks a lot, Kent. Yeah, the guest pictures really add to the site. It would be pretty limited without them.

I do like how you have hyper eiseni and delta seperate. The hyper gene isn't completely tied into the aberrant gene from Merced Co. and south. Hyper eiseni can produce normal colored aberrant offspring, where as deltas can not. The 7th picture of "hyper eiseni" is what I consider a delta type with a lighter chocolate coloration, the 8th is a normal eiseni. :thumb:

Thanks, David. I just happened to be looking at those two yesterday and decided #7 should stay but #8 I wasn't so sure about since some of those Eiseni have a "dirty" white color to them. I just moved that one back with the normal Eiseni. I think you are right about them being different morphs. JP bred the two together and found they were non compatible, which is the best evidence so far. It would be nice to see more of those types of breeding take place. I'd like to see a dark hyper Eiseni bred to a Delta just to be sure those dark Eiseni are not double homozygote's (Eiseni X Delta). Anyway thanks a lot for all those photos and your help. :thumb:

I bred a Normal Eiseni to a Delta this year and produced all "Aberrant Black Bellys" some sharing some looks from the Eiseni, and some more like the Delta then a few in-between.

Chad, that is very interesting. Do you happen to have pictures of the parents? Are you absolutely sure the Delta isn't a dark Eiseni?

Yes because I know where my CB Eiseni parents were from well county wise, and I physically caught the father Delta which is on your website as a baby 150+ miles from the nearest Eiseni range.

I agree, Ross, I've stared at your website for hours. I can't believe I can find snakes like that here in Los Angeles County. Looking forward to this year..... :beer:

Thanks a lot. I was also surprised to find out what was in LA back in 2005/2006. Good luck this year. :thumb:

Horrid photo of her from a few years back she's now 6 or 7 years old. Bred by our own Scott Waters from WC parents.

Father as a baby. He's now 3 years old.

Give me a few days and I'll get photos of the last two of six babies.

Thanks a lot for those photos, Chad! Yeah, that looks pure Eiseni all the way. I'd like to use that photo on my website and write about your results. Thank you very much for sharing this. :thumb:

I too, have been really stoked on the Cal-King site. A true testament to the species..

Its amazing how much some of those dark central valley morphs, look like the LA mud and whittier morphs..

Great job, and will be looking forward to seeing it progress!

Thanks a lot, Danny! Yeah, its pretty crazy there are 3 areas hundreds of miles apart with the same types of morphs. And all 3 are probably compatible. :shock: :D
