Really, let's kick this idea around a little bit. There are several ball morphs that for all intents and purposes, look pretty normal. For some reason, ball keepers fill their rooms with racks holding up to 30 adults per rack. They have a LOT of animals to play around with. They're also studying every aspect of an animals "look" trying to find the next morph. There are not many people WORKING with Dumerils. So, looking at the dark female I just posted. Color wise, you could compare to a chocolate ball. You take away normal coloring, you get a pretty blah looking animal, but when they combine the chocolates with things like pinstripes, they start making some pretty wicked animals. Yellow bellies? Are you kidding me, I have some and how normal do they look? Who is studying belly coloration on their Dumerils? I am, but really how hard are we looking at these animals and working toward putting two animals with these subtle differences together. Most people just buy a Dumerils or two, and take what they get. Very few are extremely picky in what they're picking up and in the end with what they're breeding. So, maybe we have some hidden treasures we just haven't happened across yet. Maybe there isn't anything though, and we're just stuck with normal Dumerils. I'd have no problem with that at all. Morphs will just bring outsiders in looking to make money off something they had no interest in up until that point. So, do the next best thing and breed the best you can to make animals that stand out on their own.
