I'm not sure but the ones my friend just produced might be super striped abberrant amels. Both parents were striped abberrants het for amel. If a striped abberrant equates to a het and a super equates to a homo then 25% of the clutch should be normals, 25% should be striped abberrant and 50% should be super striped abberrants. In the amel part of the equation of course 25% would be normals, 25% hets and 50% amels.

He got 5 hatchlings. 3 were striped abberrant with normal color and 2 were striped abberrant amels.* I don't know if it's possible to tell just by looking which ones are supers but some of them should be by odds. The normal colored ones do look more like they would be the supers but the amels are pretty dramatic in their striping and abberrancies too.

You can send me you email address with ks' pm function and I will send you pictures of both the parents and the hatchlings if you want.

* Interesting that 100% of the clutch displayed some level of striping and abberrancy when het to het should yield 25/25/50. Perhaps one of the parents was actually a super? You should examine the pics because you can see that a low grade super might be very hard to distinguish from a high grade simple striped abberrant(aka het). That's actually a theory of mine that might fit with alot of things, ie melanistic thayeri, striped abberrant ruthveni and blackbelly hypermelanistic Cal kings. The theory being that low grade "supers" can be virtually indistinguishable from high grade "hets" and low grade "hets" may be virtually indistinguishable from some normals.
