That's very true Kyle. The "bug-eyed" gene is indeed a tandem trait found in the leucistic Texas rats. They could be true linheimeri, but another possibility is that if they were ever crossed with Blacks a while back, some offspring could still express that bug-eyed gene as well as the leucistic and amel gene when the traits align in pairs on the allele. because siblings would be carrying the identical genetic makeup and it is very possible these genes could still line up in pairs to be displayed in homozygous form. It's just impossible to say, but yes, seeing the bug-eyed Texas Rat trait is a good thing to see in this particular case. No doubt what subspecies that came from...
