My friend Chad e-mailed me the other day and asked me about what he should get to fill out his collection of breeders.
He had cool things, including a Pied project, but he wanted a few more females.
His question to me was "What should I do?" (with more words than that, but I am summarizing).
Well... I told him to get some Pastel females, some het pied females, but mostly I told him:
You should do what you love.
That is a great mantra to have across the board in life...
Do what you love!
But in terms of snake breedings, work with the projects you love. Work with the animals that make you happy. Play with the colors that are your favorite.
Well, I heart Pieds. And I heart Axanthics, and I heart Crystals and I heart many other projects. There are some projects I heart less than others, but I heart them enough to play with them.
Yes, I have a lot of heart.
Anyway, I really do suggest starting out, if you are a newbie, with something the INSPIRES you.
Take my friend Jackie. She got a Pewter cause she wanted to make Super Pewters. Well, there you go, my friends! She is on her way, with bells on! She didn't get an Albino cause she wanted to make Super Pewters... She had her eye on the prize.
So with all that I am saying, just keep your eye out for the one morph that makes you excited to work with Ball Pythons. And if you need more inspiration, keep an eye out for what hatches out around the world. There is some CRAZY stuff popping out of eggs every year, and I have to say, I'm excited to see it.
Every year is something new, something different, something worth striving for. Reach for the stars, and hatch yourself out the next big thing!
(And while your at it, get a few other things to tide you over.. that's what I did)
Have a fantastic day, my friends.
