    Sunset ball !!

    I saw this on Facebook and had to share it because I think it does an amazing job of capturing this awesome animal. I saw him in person last month when I was up in MI and he looks great. I saw the original import back in the day when he was imported he was smaller ( and I presume younger ) than the animals pictured and still didn't look as good. I can say with out a doubt this animal blows the socks off of the original import.

    All photo credit goes to Aaron Jones. This animal pictured is the 2012 male Sunset that proved out the project last year and belongs to BHB. The photo was taken a few months ago by Aaron Jones and the animal is pictured with a normal for comparison.

    Aaron Jones takes some great photos. As for the Sunset, I'm still waiting to hear if BHB will accept 25 year payment plans on one of those..

    I think they're a cool looking recessive and they are already in collections. Anybody have adult pics? Could do well with pastel , enchi, yb, orange dream, and so on.
    Oh yeah...it's me alright.

    Already in collections ? I have followed this project closely from my good friend Josh insisting on pairing the original sunset with his one remaining offspring (that Brian did not even regard as a het and did not want to even pair with the sunset) to Brian telling Josh he was in for a big disappointment to Brian calling Josh confused / amazed that it proved out after all those years to seeing them in person multiple times over the past year. Now I have heard that the one existing het female did lay again this year and some one has put a very large cash deposite on the first visual male to be hatched but other than that I dont know what you could be referring to. Please explain

    Also, I definitely agree with your combo suggestions!! I think enchi fire or enchi YB would crazy orange / red with the sunset gene. Also, pied and albino will be super freaking crazy!!

    Re: Sunset ball !!

    From what I have been told hets and visual females have been sold. They have been available for months now. A buddy was interested in getting into the project and was offered animals but he decided against the offer. This will be a project that will do well with people making visuals from hets. Once the visuals are out there in quantity it'll be a blast to also breed things like coral glow and different pattern morphs into them. Now that I've seen things like the lesser ultramel and Mojave ultramel I think a color mutation like the sunset will be really cool with a lot of those too! Orange dream mojo sunset???
    Oh yeah...it's me alright.

    Yup...I think there were some recent clutch pics on Twitter/instagram of the het female's clutch and a super pastel female bred to a visual Sunny male. I haven't asked too much about it otherwise, other than to make smartass offers of 25 year payment plans.

    The 'origin story' behind it is really cool though...I can't imagine sitting on something for that long and then having it ultimately pan out how it did. I'm a sucker for recessive stuff.

    That comparison photo is outstanding, thanks for sharing. I really hope you're right Winston about the first CB batch of sunsets outdoing their dad. The BP world needs red

    Thus far they definitely have. I agree with you, this is a whole new color we are adding to our pallet and I think there is ALLOT of potential for what can be done.

    Re: Sunset ball !!

    Winston thanks for posting the picture of a really cool new rare morph. Yes they are that rare. One visual was sold last year but she died. Also there are no 100 percent real hets to be purchased from last year. Only one from last year remains and allegedly Fred has it.

    It is sad when people are already dogging on the project because of their childish politics. There motives are nothing more than childish.

    On a side note I feel that the Sunset project is going to awesome when combined to a great many color morphs. I think buying hets this year is a great move for those wanting to stay on top of the ball game.

    All I know is that some combo with this NEEDS to be called the 'Tequila Sunset'... (I know the drink is 'Sunrise', but close enough)

    I do really wonder how Hypo will react with this gene. Its pretty predictable with most things but since we have never seen this color before I have no idea what it may do lol This is going to be exciting thats for sure
