Hey Kevin,

Other than the fact that you had obtained F1 Ivories in your original deal that is what I was saying.

My hypothesis is that the founding male of your stock is of the same genetic material as the Indonesian bloodline(i.e. the bloodline Kam produced his Leucies from). Where as your matriarch is likely het for the ultra line. Time will tell, but currently it is the only theory out there which holds any water.

This is similar to: Mojave and Lesser. Mojave X Mojave = a white snake with a lot of blurred color and pattern. Lesser X Lesser = a white snake. Lesser X Mojave = an inbetween version. Although the phenotype of any of the BEL complex animals may very, they are all located on the same gene locus.

I believe we will find the confusion in all of this is simply due to two seperate white snake making mutations being combined in the founding stock, madness ensues and here we are today... confused and figuring it out.

I also believe that the mitotic transfer done when the ivory was bred to the albino tiger substantiates my theory. If the ivory in fact is an animal with one affect "ultra" chromosome and one affect "abu" chromosome, and the offspring leucistic from that breeding is a leucistic via mitotic transfer (the only mode of gene transmission which explains this phenomonen) then the animal is in fact genotypically heterozygous while being phenotypically homozygous. Since the animal is only a het genetically, but is expressing the mutation it is het for in its homozygous form- then that animal is simply het for the abu ivory. In turn that shows that you have two seperate forms of platinum at play.

Regards,
Jordan
