This extraordinary Corallus canines female immediately stands out because of her black base color, which is interrupted with white, yellow and green scales. Along her dorsal you can see the white lightning shaped markings which are typical for this species. The light yellow color of the flanks turns into cream white at her belly. If you take a closer look you can spot little green and yellow dots on some of the black scales. This increases the outstanding look of this animal. Her unusual looking brother, CA03-02 , suggests a genetic component. We’re looking forward to what is possible with those two animals in the next years.
This little corallus caninus female is an offspring of the anaconda phase 2015 project of Glenn Boog (Dutch Arboreals). Both parents are anaconda phase, additionally the sire has a mustard coloring, like it’s seen on Morelia viridis. All juveniles were green and blue-green when they were born. Only one offspring was visibly mustard, but the color of our little lady is changing more and more from light-green to mustard.
This supports the assumption of a genetic aspect of this coloration. To our knowledge there are no other C. caninus with this coloration than those from this project. Her lack of markings emphasizes her light and glowing color.
The female was born as an orange neo in 2016. Her dorsal pattern is rich in contrast and is framed with single black scales. Special about her are the black spotted flanks. The sire is an Austrian cb. He has black spotted scales distributed over his entire body, which he developed after his color change was finished. The dam is an import. Her brother CC16-03 is also in our stock. We’re looking forward to see how they both turn out.
