It is worth mentioning that the color and pattern morphs of Boa constrictor are almost all crossbred animals. The same is also true for "albino" Boa constrictor, so called "snowboas" or hypomelanistic boas. Don't fall for somebody trying to tell you otherwise.
Another valid argument against the breeding of color and pattern mutations is the fact that these aberrancies of the "normal" form are nothing but genetic defects in the animals; hence the inheritability of the aberrant patterns and colorations.
Speculations that the genetics of these animals contain further defects are not easily dismissed, and the emergence of one-eyed specimens among litters of albino boas in the U.S. certainly points toward this as well. Such effects are then further strengthened, as animals with the same genetic defects are bred with one another.
It is also notable that the breeding results of albino boas mating with albino boas appear to be inferior to those of albino boas mating with heterozygous specimens (animals that look normal, but carry the genes for amelanism).
