Perhaps I am not following this thread logically and am missing the point, but how would you propose diferentiating between two (or three or more) non allelically compatible strains? In Boas it has been shown that there are at least two strains, Leopard Geckos have three (and the potential for a fourth as yet unproven strain). While functionally they are all T animals, lumping them together seems to me to be saying that an egg is an egg regardless if it is a hummingbird egg or an ostrich egg. There is a fundamental truth there, but most would agree that the two are not the same thing.

There was an article written in either Vivarium, Captive Breeding, or Reptiles that theorized that hypomelanism as a variable state could eventually result in some form of amelanism. I will see if I can find that article and post a referance to it.

Just curious,

Ian
