Hogg cross or ??

Ok, this guy was sold to me as an "uncrossed" BCI pastel hypo, but the more and more I look at him, he looks to me like a hogg island cross! Which I guess isn't necessarily bad, but it muddies his blood a bit which is a downer.
Anywho, I'd love to get some more opinions. Cause I've pretty much convinced myself he is lol.
I have TONS of pics of him you can see through the link in my sig. if these aren't enough.

Thanks for your input!

I don't see the Hog influence that you're seeing . How would this " muddy" it up ? Hypos are already a Panamanian/Colombian cross, so all Hypos are somewhat "muddy" -- unless you purchase one of the rare pure Colombian Hypos that Jeff Ronne has . I personally wouldn't breed a HypoHog back into Colombian stuff, but like I said, I don't see it in your Hypo.

So is it the tail pattern, or the speckling, that has you thinking it's a hog (with one g) island cross?
While I see some similarity in the tail, I agree with David...I don't see hog island. Pastels tend to have a reduction of black pigment anyway, so that look could just be the combination of pastel + hypo.
Either way, it's still "uncrossed" BCI...it just isn't a locality specific BCI (which, as David stated, it wasn't anyway; even before you convinced yourself)

Oh, I didn't know that! I have read other posts that are always asking if it's a hog cross like it's a bad thing..I dunno. Thanks!

OK thank you! And it was both his freckling and tail! He just has TONS of big freckling and that reduced tail pattern..an he's just so colorful! Thanks for the info. I did not know a lot and still don't about the hypo morph in columbian's so I probably just had too much time on my hands lol.

That's because most people that are looking for hog island boas want pure ones - once they are mixed with other BCI (or anything else), they simply aren't hog island boas anymore
