Method of Inheritance: Simple recessive and co-dominant mutations
Appearence: Complete absence of any black/dark pigment. Red pupils and pink tongue.
Connecting dorsal pattern often displaying a striped or ‘squaretail’ appearance. Absence of belly speckling and typical ‘diamond’ pattern to the flanks, generally replaced with lateral striping.
Our albino motley Boas were produced by combining the Kahl albino gene with the Colombian motley gene.
As the name suggests, this line of Albino Boas was originally developed by Pete rKahl. In 1992, Peter bred a male Albino Boa (one of 4 Albino Boas imported into the U.S. in 1983) to a Het Albino female to become the first person to reproduce Albino Boas in captivity. This strain (or line) of Albino Boas are referred to today as Kahl Albinos, or the "original" Albino.
The original Motley Boa was imported from Columbia in 1994 and later proved to be a co-dominant mutation.
Our albino motley Boas are a great example of how two separate morphs can be combined to enhance the overall appearance, producing a ‘designer morph’.
