I haven't seen all the books that touch on snake genetics. The best one I've seen is on corn snakes, but it doesn't discuss dominants or codominants. So, in my opinion, you are better off going to a general genetics text. Schaum's Introduction to Genetics, by Elron and Stansfield, is better than most though has some faults. I like the problem-based format, and used paperbound copies of the latest (2002) edition are available for less than $10.

I know nothing about either the Jaguar or the Tiger morphs. Most of the genetics I've done has been with mice and ringneck doves. But the genetic principles are the same in pythons, mice, corn, etc. So I will look around on the web and see what I can see. The only thing that will really help work the problem out is a pile of detailed, multigenerational breeding records.
