This litter was from an F1 Chicago female whose father was the wild caught green axanthic. Unfortunately once again there were no obvious axanthics. I am pretty certain that the axanthic is not a simple recessive gene, but it may be a polymorphic gene similar to the flame that will take line breeding to bring it out. the reason I believe this may be possible is that the mother of these babies was the F1 with the most green color and these babies have a more olive green color. Time will tell and I will be watching these guys in the upcoming months to see if any color develops when they have shed a few times. Again this project may end up being in vain, but I will might as well see it out a little longer. It is also possible that I will not be able to replicate the phenotype of the wild caught male for whatever reason.
