I fully understand...no not really, but, I know you understand where I'm coming from, yes, maybe the pattern and the 'butt ugly' may be hard to overcome, HEY take a look at me! But, when you breed that dodoma to a butt ugly, those litters will still look the same 5-6 years down the road without the dull and flecking.

I've seen Jeff Holloway's anerys and they are super reduced patterned and maintain their color as they age, I don't know what % they are of dodoma/nuclear, but they sure aren't 50% or 25%, they are anerys, so they are multiple generations removed from a nuclear or dodoma, yet they still hold their color.

How much 'dodoma/nuclear' blood does a snake have to have to exhibit this 'trait'. I am unsure, but it does not appear much. That's the point I'm trying to make. It seems like we look at 'line bred' traits as negatives (or atleast, less desirable), because if you have a super high orange bred to a super high orange and some in the litter don't come out high orange, well, it isn't going to throw you a litter of high orange when you breed it later to a normal.

But, it will retain its color as it ages even multiple generations of litters down the road. Breed that litter to other Kenyans and the resulting litter would do the same (retain its color, but may still be butt ugly). Again, what you want to call it, I don't know, but 'line bred' insinuates, the high orange to high orange example above. So, I'm against calling the dodoma's ability to maintain its color over its life a line bred trait. The reduced pattern is most definitely a line bred trait, no doubt.

Is that your nuclear or your meltdown in the middle? One of my males is getting more nuclear color after every shed (a 'Screamer' as the father of the meldowns recently called them!), the other one is not...damned line bred traits! LOL!
