Hi,

attached are a few pics of greeri morphs.
First is a morph I do call "reduced black". The trait is simple recessive and it reduces the black in the saddles. It gives the animals a pinstriped look and it also seems to lighten up the animals and to reduce the "newsprinting".

Also attached a hatchling pic for comparsion:
up and reduces the "newsprinting".
.

The second morph I would like to introduce is called "light phase" or just "light" by me. It is also a simple recessive trait. The animals hatch out as white babies and do not get as dark as normal adults. This does not have any influence to the pattern.


Acomparsion shot of two adults, one is "wild pattern" and one is a " light phase". The pic is not doing justice to the different look.

And the offspring:
.

It seems that both morphs in one animal is hard to get.
Last is a tripel comparsion of wildtype, light and reduced black.
