Thanks again, Please understand, I get those definitions.
I also get other input, like from the Ball python folks and others.
As you known what we are calling cod in snakes is not the same as actual genetic cod, when cod expresses both cod and other in one snake. not one clutch.
If you know me, I look at these things as intended, from the product first. Or better yet, in practice first.
Many years ago, 1971, I acquired a very slightly odd Blairs from a clutch. I bred it and kept a very slightly odd opposite gender from that clutch. Bred those two and produced striped blairs. Not all in the clutch in the clutch were striped, It was a one in eight type of thing. If the striped(supers) were bred to eachother, they mostly produced striped. I then bred that gene into alterna phase, and produced totally speckled alterna. Of course at that time, there wes no Codom associated with snakes.
I also bred other traits out of many many species, It all worked in a very similar manner. Notice an oddity and bred it out, With snakes, It worked easily and regularly. Odd traits were always expressed in a way that Codom(cod) does. Generally within three generations, you could completely change the snake. You could do it with pattern, striping, colors, etc.
As you know, I worked varanids, with them, it was a horse of a different color. breeding for color and or pattern was a lot of work and inconsistent. With Red ackies, I bred for red and achieved black. Hmmmmmmmm hated it. I did succeed in producing a line of banded flavi/gouldi crosses. And a different line of banded gouldi. But by and large, their genetics is set in stone. part 1
