Offspring outcome question! Red tail boas.

Hey there!
I recently received a male Jungle 100% het sharp, as well as a female Ghost (hypo/anery) Jungle 100% het sharp. I've tried doing my own research but the genetics of it all still confuses me a bit. I'm wondering if any of you knowledgable herpers out there could help me out with what this pair could produce together, as well as what would be good investments to pair them with?
I appreciate your time, and any info.
Thank you!

There are a variety of genes at work here. Both Hypo and Jungle are dominant. Two jungles together would result in approx. 25% super junlges, 50% jungles, 25% normal. Hypo would result in 50% hypos and 50% normals. Since both are het sharp (recessive) 25% of the babies would be visual sharps and the rest would be poss hets. Since the mother is a visual anery, all babies would be het anery.

Assuming both are what they were sold as and the odds gods work their magic you would expect this probable outcome with a 1/32 chance in hitting the last one
