Yeah Doug,

That's what is going to bug me for a while now! The grandparents of my pair are also classic examples of Texas rats. If the amel gene did come from black rats, it is quite a few generations before the grandparents even!

I guess there is no real way to tell for sure anyway. Without direct lineage paperwork for the grandparetns, it is all just based on phenotype. We'll see what this albino looks like as it grows. Right now it looks pretty much spot on to the juvenile wildcaught. I am curious what the rest of the clutch looks like, I can't wait to get home to check on them!
