Hypo Boa (DH Sunglow)

Latin Name:

Boa constrictor imperator


Hypomelanistisch +
Het Albino = DH Sunglow


dominant (Hypo)
recessive (Het Albino)


One of the first breeders of hypo boas was Rich Ihle who gave them the name Salmon Boas. So Salmon boa is just another synonym for hypo boa and links to the line of Rich Ihle.


The hypo genetic not only causes the reduction of the black pigments it also makes colours clearer and more brilliant. In other words these animals offer endless potential for the serious breeding of other Designer Boas.

My hypo boas are also het. for albino so I am in the position, amongst other things, to breed sunglows. That's the reason why "hypo het. albino boas" are also called "double het. for sunglow" (dh sunglow).
