Some of the new additions

Post by Warren_Booth on Fri May 13, 2011 11:24 am

I took a break from working on a paper last night at 4am to check on some new animals that I have in quarantine. I snapped a few pics on my iPhone but will get better pictures once I get a chance.

The fisrt 2 Parthenogenetic are obviously not from the BWC litter so you have discovered more? How many more?

Thats right Phil. They are not from the Boawoman Caramel litters. These are from a second case that I have documented. The full story will be made public soon, once I get round to writing the manuscript. It is quite a remarkable case and different than the the previous report.

I have also documented parthenogenesis in Colombian rainbow boas, copperheads, and am awaiting samples from a Green Anaconda litter. I also need to get the samples from Jeff from his super ghost/Anery litter, and his Argentine boa litter.

Has parthenogenesis not been noticed before ? say from the likes of a Homozygous recessive animal breeding to an animal not carrying the same recessive gene and all the young turn out homozygous for this recessive gene. like breeding an albino to a normal and getting 100% albino That is whats happening here isn't it. Or has it been happening and people have just misinterpreted the result.

its mind boggling stuff Warren, must be very exciting working on it.
