What is your goal?

I have been going in my snake room much more often these last few days, and I realize that I have some morphs in the collection that are there and I have no goal for them. I have no idea what I want to do with them, and I am really somewhat taken aback by it.

Of course, I rationalize getting an animal by saying all the things I CAN do with it breeding and genetics wise, but my goals to achieve are sometimes not there.

Pastel Calico
Perfect example... My Pastel Calico.

I got her pretty recently, within the last six to eight months. She is very cool looking, and I've always wanted a Calico in the collection. The problem is, I have NO IDEA what the heck I am going to put her to.

Sure, there are plenty of things I COULD do, but I don't have a "I gotta do this or else" kind of mentality with this gal. Which to be quite frank is the case with many of my females, but the time that I have before I have to decide is a factor that I greatly appreciate. In three years, I'm pretty sure I can figure something out...

I gotta get cracking on checking more on the forums and websites for more ideas... I had a few, and I still have a few, but not enough.

I still have my goal of the TSK Snows that have eluded my grasp for the past two years... And Snow Spiders, which are on the way (I hope). I am considering things with the Special stuff that I can do, a Pastel Crystal Pied sounds pretty good, don't it?

But other than those lofty aspirations, I have no idea.

Time for some inspiration!!!

Share with me what you guys plan on doing (I promise I won't steal your ideas if it's a brand new morph) so that I can use you all as my muse!

Have a fantastic day, my friends!

calico enchi, then take it to a nice clown.. hey why not hook that g-stripe up with the pastel calico.. wonder what the calico gene would do all the way down the side brown side of the g-stripe then the pastel on top of that?? WOW
I truely believe the future of the ball python hobby is really depending on these recessive traits..meaning the one that has gotten the furthest with them will dominate the future.

I think either a pastel spotnose or anything albino would go well with the pastel calico. I personally would like to see a high white albino calico.

I LOVE calico bumblebees. YUM. You got any bumblebees boys back there? Or better yet killer bbes or spinner bees? Do we know what calico blasts look like?
