Hi Dan, thanks for the pics, but, there is no question the larger individual is axanthic, the belly is pure black and white, etc. It meets all requirements to be axanthic. The question is, western or Mexican.

The smaller one, I agree, normal, oh so near but normal. The vendor that had these, indeed questioned both, in the way I described above.

As you may know, I do question the understanding of morphs in the trade. In this case axanthisum. Not that what your calling axanthics are not, they are. But are limited to the variation that can and does occur with different founders. The hog trade with axanthics is based on ONE founder, maybe two(BHB and NY) as far as I know.





What do you think of these. Thanks
