Thanks again Gregg, Your reply was great, I am not doubting the genetics at all, just the level of expression. Easy examples are, what was the standard definition of anaconda, 4 years ago? I think many of the ultra low expression individuals were called normal. Then you learned that those you considered normal, were indeed just lower expression individuals(conda genetics)
Time will tell. And surely its not important. Its just that I have seen this in the past.
Now for a weirder question. When talking about polygentic and co dom. How do you separate or do you separate normal phenotypic traits compared to morphs. I understand that non normal traits(morphs) are easy to track. What as normal traits have a "expected" element and are normally not looked at.
What is polluting my brain is not captivity, instead the sites I am looking at in the field. One site is extremely variable in color types, and contains a number of pattern types. But zero mutations in pattern. With most species we see, pattern mutation such as striping is not all that rare. Examples are gophersnakes. A similarly blotched snake like hognose, yet its common to observe connected blotching and striping. At times, finding totally striped gophersnakes was not uncommon. Most of our Crots have blotch striping fairly common as well. ALso totally striped crots pop up from time to time, the fella I am making cages for, just picked up another(atrox). Crots also have a similar pattern to hognose. Any thoughts sir?
