I don't mean to keep pointing towards ball pythons, but the bp world is where I see the most genetic diversity and examples right now. What really made me think of this, is there is a strain of albino bp's out there, that the het's often hatch out looking absolutely black and white axanthic. It's crazy, if you google it you'll probably turn up stuff on it where people actually thought that they just got axanthics at times...they don't stay that way, often by the time they go through their first shed they've started to color up like normal, and when they do it's usually a pretty fast change. I don't know that it's trusted enough still to sell them as definite hets out of a het to het breeding, although I have seen them being marked up over the other possible hets and people told that "these are most likely going to be the hets out of the clutch". A friend of mine had this strain of albino, I'll see if I can link in some pictures late tonight when I get home from work. (btw, I'm calling it a strain for lack of a better term, it's not a different albino gene, it's the normal common one out there, just some for some reason do this).

Genetics are fun and exciting, often confusing and even leave the experts scratching their heads coming up with answers for whats going on sometimes (research banana/coral glow being sex linked sometime for some real craziness). I'm sure no expert on it by far, I have a good grasp on understanding a lot of what I think I need to know, sometimes I may not be the best at explaining things. I do know that I've seen things that make no sense sometimes, and others there's a little sense but no definite explanation for why it happens sometimes... another friend of mine hatched out a clutch of pastel yellow bellys het pied that had so much white coming up the sides of them they could have been sold as pieds...but with the only pied gene coming from one parent who was a visual, we know that they're 100% hets. Obviously the pied gene is finding a way to bleed through, how exactly or why is anyones guess.

Anyways, sorry if I rambled, but just thinking through what's going on here with this new litter, brainstorming reasons for "why" other than simply natural variability in color, it crossed my mind that there could be the anerys, normals, and then the others which could possibly be giving away that they're anery hets. It's possible anyways and it wouldn't be the first time. Maybe this actually is a new gene of anery that leans in the direction of being incomplete dominate instead of totally recessive? Or it could be natural variability in color and totally wild luck that they happened to have tied into an existing line somewhere along the way and the gene has been being passed along totally unknown until now.

Fun stuff, guess we all get to sit back and have fun watching where it goes from here!

Charlie
