Brazilian Rainbow Boa Morphs and Traits

Example Pictures Characteristics

Lockwood (EBV) Hypo - Proven recessive

The animals are very noticeably lighter in color and the typical black areas are light to chocolate brown in color. The original hypos were produced in 1994 from a pair of siblings that were bred together and subsequently sold to EBV.

Darin Bell (DB) Hypo - Proven Recessive

European Hypo

Sharp Anery - Proven Recessive

Originally produced by Brian Sharp, the babies are silver and taupe.  As adults they are mostly brown with white crescents.

Seib Anery - Mode of inheritance unknown

Originally produced by Robert Seib, it was originally thought to be recessive.  Mike Lockwood bred his Hypos to two Anery females to produce "double Het Ghost" babies.  When those babies were eventually bred, there were four litters produced with 80 total babies, 20 Hypos and two odd "Ghosts" but no visual Aneries.  This event places the Seib line mode of inheritance into question.  More work TBD.

Outback Albino (T-) - Proven Recessive

White and orange with no dark pigment is typical to t negative albinos.
Wild caught adult male visual acquired by Outback reptiles in yyyy?  Was in rough shape and took them several years to recuperate and acclimate to captivity before they could produce the first litters of hets.  Visual Albinos first produced by them in 2014.

Caramel Albino (T+) - Proven Recessive

Caramel colored with Dark eyes is typical to t positive Albinos.
(History needed)

Candy Stripe - Incomplete Dominant

Heterozygous expression ( Candy Stripe) is dorsal striping with intense coloration.
Homozygous expression (Super Candy Stripe) is full body striping with dark head, pink tongue and split frontal scale.

Discovered by Dave Colling in 2011 by breeding siblings with dorsal connected patterns.  To date original pair has been bred twice with approximately 1/4 of each litter Supers, 1/2 Candys and 1/4 normals.  The male has also been bred to two unrelated females with some Candy stripes and some normals produced. F3 Super Candy and Candy stripes were produced in 2019

Zebra Pearl Stripe - Incomplete Dominant

Found within my Pearl animals but seems to be related to only a few of them.
Zebra Stripe is defined as connections between dorsal and lateral patterns and is quantified by number of connections "Z-xx"
Heterozygous expression seems to be in the 1 to 10 connected spot range.
Homozygous expression seems to be in the 35 plus range. 

Picasso Stripe - Incomplete Dominant

More of an Aberrant pattern morph. Single gene expression is odd shaped patterns both dorsal and lateral.  Double gene expression is significantly greater number of aberrant patterns with some blending into stripes.  The most extreme Supers have near or even complete body striping.

Ted Thompson Stripe - Proven Recessive

From Susquehanna Ectotherms. 
(Additional details TBD)

Wipeout (reduced Dorsal Pattern) - Partially Proven Incomplete Dominant

Heterozygous expression - Some hints of reduced dorsal pattern and/or some dorsal patterns reduced to only a black dot.
Homozygous expression - much of the dorsal pattern either totally missing or in some cases reduced to dark spots.
Discovered by Aubry Ross in yyyy?
(additional details needed)

Pearl - suspected recessive

A pattern morph where the side crescent patterns are so exaggerated they are completely crescent colored, no black. 

Pinstripe - Mode TBD

Orignially produced by Nic Garofalo the Pinstripes are characterized by dorsal patterns connected together with a fine dark outline.  These connected patterns often have almost straight edges, not just multiple spots merged together in a zig zag type pattern. Some are only a few dorsal spots while others are near full body stripes.

Eugene Stripe - ????

Calico - Mode of inheritance TBD

A pattern morph where areas are turning white.  I took this project over from Brian Sharp.  According to Brian, he was originally sold as a normal in CA.  At two or three years of age, he shed off areas of color and has been that way ever since.  I produced three litters of offspring in 2008/2009 a,d a litter of F2's in 2012.  I'm raising up the entire litter of F2's to see what happens.  fingers crossed!

High Orange

BRB's specifically bred for the brightest of orange colors.

High Red

Similar to High Orange but bred for bright red colors.


A pattern morph where the side crescents are completely missing.  Sometimes leaving a light blush in the middle of the side medalions.  Has shown up in a few babies descended from Savannah, an adult I acquired in 2004.  Working to see if this is genetic and can produce more. 

Bull's Eye

A pattern morph where the side crescent patterns are so exaggerated they will sometimes form complete circles. These are still in development and at this time have some side patterns complete. My current first generation breeding trials show this trait is most likely polygenic or not specifically tied to one gene but is definitely passed on from parent to offspring in a varying degree. The babies range from less crescent to much more crescent. As I breed this trait through the next few generations I expect this to continue where the babies are plus and minus the parents. As the parents approach fuller Bull's Eyes, the babies should get better and better. Future plans include breeding this pattern morph into all of my color lines


As if that can be said for a BRB, they all show amazing colors and patterns along with the rainbow iridescence that is typical to the species. All my breeders are being selected for specific traits and the babies are getting better and better with each generation.
