AG5-14-01 male at 2 years
On May 5, 2014 the clutch from Alba x Gamma5 produced the most unusual jaguars I've hatched to date. They are so heavily banded the "banding" has become the dominant color scheme, with some formation of circle patterns. The head patterns and ventral scale colors are also not typical of jaguar pythons. They are no doubt jaguar pythons, and are distinctly different from the jaguar-sibs of the clutch. Because their circular patterns reminded me of anacondas as they emerged from the eggs, I've decided to call them "anaconda Jaguars".
Time will tell if they represent a new morph of jaguar pythons.

Gamma 5 (CB 2008) is a diamond jungle jaguar from the epic clutch of Gamma x Antonio. In addition to the clean, bright scales typical of Gamma-line pythons, he has also developed intense yellow coloration. The color is so vibrant he appears fluorescent, much like a tropical fish. He remains intensely bright and clean at 9 years of age, and has sired nothing but trophy quality pythons. He is beyond doubt the most fantastic creature I've ever produced.

Gamma11 (CB 2011) is a female diamond jungle jaguar offspring from the stellar clutch of Aphrodite (jungle carpet python) and Gamma5. In addition to the clean, deep yellow so characteristic of the Gamma-line pythons, she has developed rich orange hues as well.

Gamma was a diamond-jungle jaguar python produced by Jeff Favelle (Canada). Sire was a
jungle jaguar and dam a diamond-jungle python, both fairly average appearing pythons.
Gamma turned out to be spectacular, both in her bright clean scales that did not fade or
smudge as she aged, and by the quality of pythons that she produced. The Gamma-line of
jaguar pythons continue to have colorfast bright colors that do not diminish with age. Her
legacy lives on with her sensational progeny here at the Morelia Trophy Club.
Gamma3 was a diamond jungle jaguar
from the Gamma x Antonio clutch (2008).
In May, 2010 he was featured as the
Breeder's Choice for Reptiles Magazine.
