Sorry to triple post but my computer is acting up.
As far as tokay morphs go we deal with Calico's,Albino's and Melanastics.

I have been keeping an eye on the calicos and leucistics for years but have never seen any babies. What is your experience with breeding these gorgeous morphs??

i prefer the normal tokays myself, those are a bit weird for me.....but still cool. :D

Well we have produced alot of offspring from them and they usually start off normal looking and gradually turn into the Calico trait.

Thats great. Can't wait to see them offered. How about the leucistic, albino and pied traits. Do they hatch out different or do they also change as they get older?

Is anyone working with Hypomelanistic Tokays at present?

NERD has something they call a "hypo" I think. But its not like the hypo trait you see in ball pythons.
Heres Kev's new site he put up. . hes still workin on it though.

I love that site, but it mentions nothing about a hypo. The animals i am talking about have a lighter base colour, with orange patterning and light orange eyes.

Umm.... I'd have to see a picture of it to know for sure what your talkin about. I have some that sound like that but they are just some nice normals.

I do produce some tokays, which I do call hypos.
Brilliantly looking as adults. Look at the tail. A few segments retained red dots in wildtype colouration, that helps to tell the difference


Right out of the egg these animals have lost the ability to darken upon stress. Other than that they look pretty normal as juvies . As adults most lighten up, showing a whitish blue background colouration with orange spots as depicted above. Some anyhow darken with age and then are not too different to the wildtype.
Seems to be recessive, possibly monogenic. But still too early to be sure.

I think I hatched one out like you describe this year. Its in a cage with other babys and its always really really gray with real nice red spots.

Ingo that is the coolest Tokay picture i've ever seen! Mainly the spots on the head seem to have the usual colouration (darker), do all of your hypos show this difference?
