Method of Inheritance: Co dominant (hypo) and simple recessive (Leopard)
Appearence: A highly variable appearance of dark cryptic patterning often expressing spots, stripes or aberrant blotches.
These central american dwarf Boas were originaly imported from the Sonoran desert region of Mexico into Germany in the 1980's.
Although generaly a very dark Boa, Leopards often exhibit a strong pink/orange colouration, which is more obvious in designer morphs such as hypo or albino Leopards where the black is reduced/absent.
As with other Sonoran Boas, Leopards are also a very small Boa with females maturing at only about 5ft.
