This is a very cool project, started by Dan Johnson back in the 90s. If you google Dan Johnson Black Gap alterna you can find his site that lists all of his breeders, and offspring, clutch results, etc. (I'm sure most of you know this)

3 morphs have come out of this Black Gap locale, Hypomelanistic, Anery and thus the combo of the two, Ghost. (Probably this too)

I hardly ever see any of these available online, so hopefully in a few years I'll have some of my own to offer to the public.
Unfortunately the Black Gap locale doesn't always take to rodents quite as quickly as the leucistic line, and my 2014 pair are still being force fed mouse tails, though really they eat them with no force, just to have get the tail in it's mouth.
Would be cool to one day find out if any of the Black Gap morphs can combine with Leucistic and create something new. Though leucistic might just mask the other gene. Even if that were the case, multi hets that could produce Hypos, Anerys, Ghosts AND Leucistics? Pssssh, who wouldn't want those bad boys??

I also have a 2013 double het ghost female that is way bigger than these, but haven't had time to photograph her properly yet.

Hypo and Leucistic male... will have to try this pic another time, the Leu is in shed and the Hypo was pretty skittish by the time I got to this pic.
