安妮(Anery PieTOwns)

(Lichanura trivirgata gracia)
我專門與Anerythristic Pioneertown地區Rosy Boa合作,後者是世界上最稀有的針對特定地區的Rosy Boa“變體”之一。只有極少數的繁殖者會產生這些獨特的生物,這使它們在與之合作的人中倍受珍視。這些絕對令人驚嘆的小蛇散發著淡藍色的虹膜和近乎薰衣草/灰色的色彩,真正地引人注目。關於這些小美人最有趣的部分是遺傳突變(又名變體)首先出現在人工飼養中!有關更多信息,請閱讀以下這些令人驚嘆的小蛇的歷史。

簡短地說,Anerythristic Pioneertown Rosy或“ Anery Pietown”之所以特別,有兩個原因。首先,Anery表型起源於圈養標本,而不是在野外發現/收集的。其次,它是局部純係,也是簡單的隱性遺傳“形態”。
1993年,拉爾夫·克勞奇(Ralph Crouch)向米奇·艾倫(Mitch Allen)出售了一對F1對新生野生型(外觀正常)的加利福尼亞州Pioneertown,地處Rosy Boas。拉爾夫·克勞奇(Ralph Crouch)分享說,他親自在加州先鋒鎮(Pioneertown)收集父母。米奇·艾倫(Mitch Allen)繁殖了它們,並在1999年生產了三(3)只F2垃圾。米奇·艾倫(Mitch Allen)再育父母兩年,再也無法再生產安納莉(Anery)的後代,因此父母被賣給了當地的一家寵物店。
2004年,米奇·艾倫(Mitch Allen)通過將雄性Anery與其同胞雌性進行育種,證明了該基因是簡單隱性的。 F3垃圾中有另外兩(2)個Anery嬰兒,因此正式證明了“ Anery”的視覺特徵。從那時起,我們一直採取謹慎和故意的照顧,以確保這種本地性/特徵組合保持純正。

A Note from TC On "Morphs"
Over the past 30 years my perspective on "morphs" has taken all kinds of forms. For clarity sake I'm defining a "morph" here as a genetic trait that yields a phenotypic (visual) expression. Morphs are either multigene or single gene meaning they can be either a combination of traits such as albino and anerythristic or a single trait like striped or something. Morphs exist in many captive reptile species today. 

In general I find myself drawn to the wildtype expression in animals aka the natural form seen in nature. I find that contemporary nature and wildlife are my very favorite animals to observe in the wild and also manage in captivity. I'm not a particular fan of the subculture within reptile keeping that seeks to play with animal genetics either through line breeding, crossing genetic traits, or even worse hybridizing species to get a new pretty creation. Yet, I will absolutely support the liberty for those who wish to do so.  I will also own the fact that I do breed the anerythristic morph of Pioneertown Rosy Boas.

As for me personally, I see morphs as the sprinkles on top of the ice-cream sundae whereby the natural form is the ice-cream. It hurts to see most of the community so excited over a bowl full of sprinkles and no ice-cream at all. The growing trend that saddens me is that the wildtype is too often viewed as useless or worthless which is fundamentally untrue from my perspective. I have a passion for conservation, preservation, and appreciation for natural found beauty. Therefore, over the next decade I will be moving away from producing any morphs whatsoever including these beautiful boas. I hope to have limited animals available each fall for the next few seasons and then stop breeding them.
