My take on this is the color we see on normal animals predominantly a mix of orange, red, black, etc. Just as leaves turn from green to a variety of colors in the Fall, we can engineer designer color morphs by eliminating different wavelengths of light from being absorbed. Take an extremely dark red animal, strip away the red with the anery gene, and now maybe yellow will prevail. The hypo gene will reduce black, and so forth. Maybe we can create a snow, and then add back color as desired? We are way behind other species in these regards, but I sure there are many projects in the works. It's just a matter of time.
