So as time went by, another thought surfaced, even wilder than the first one. Could it be some genetically inheritable kind of hypererythrism? Something like the “Blood” variant in Boas, for example?

If so, then this trait probably originated from the original Stillwater female (his mother), not the original Kingsville male (his father), as I raised two clutches of pure Kingsville Red Bulls, giving a total of 27 hatchlings, all of them “Tiger” and none of them “Blood”. Also, this would imply the trait to be dominant, or else it wouldn’t have surfaced in the first generation.

Yeah, I know. This all sounds like quite the little stretch, right? Well, as it turned out, I was right. About both. And then some.

I just love it when a plan comes together.
