Hi Bryan,

Sorry for not posting this here sooner, I sent you an email with some info then my laptop suffered the blue screen of death and I'm just now getting back online.

I've done a fair ammount of digging and research on this subject as it is what got me interested in reptiles almost twenty years ago. Most of my information and ideas have been formulated from my own breeding projects, discussions with some academics that I have access to, the internet and some good literature.

In terms of books, I can recommend the following (I may be paraphrasing the titles a bit - I don't have them in front of me at the moment):
For understaning the mechanics of coloration and patterning in Reptiles and Amphibians:
Color, pattern and scale variations in Reptiles and Amphibians by Bechtel & Bechtel, published by Krieger Publishing
Albinos by Stephen Broghammer by Professional Breeders Series
Designer Reptiles and Amphibians by R.D. Bartlett
For genetics: Schaumm's outline of genetics

There are a few good websites outthere:
www.vmsherp.com
www.vpi.com
www.geckosetc.com
to name a few.

I think that most of these come startlingly close to full accuracy on most all reptiles and amphibians. There are points that I would disagree withon some, but they are trivialities and they are my personal opinions which are based on my own interpretation and observations.


If you have any questions whatsoever, please don't hesitate to ask. I'll be happy to answer.

If you can't find a title, let me know and I'll dig it up for you. I'll also try and see what else in in my Herp Library (this one was just off the top of my head)

Ian
