Thing is too, uk and us are very different with some things, I’ve been trying to change many minds and put all this across but a lot don’t agree and think otherwise. unfortunately we won’t get everyone to agree on everything and I’ve given up trying to get people to change how they think. Too difficult in some situations and they really don’t like seeing proof I post things on my insta of my cresties, morphs, genes etc and so on, and that’s that, if they ask how I know I explain etc.
But My tangerines I breed are tangerines. The whole geckos are tangerines and most of them phantoms too that hatch out. I only get tangerines and very few choco coloured from the pair.
Where as us use tangerine over there like leopards and the pattern is tangerine to them. So it is different view on the ‘tangerine’ i’d say. Where as the whole gecko to me and people here is tangerine. That’s just one example there as they have like no pattern but some brindling usually. We’ve spoken about it before anyway.
And yes I know it’s an and b making the colour of base or pattern etc, But it’s not something people will list up let up when selling say. To them it’s a say, dark base with orange patterning, they won’t go into detail about what makes what colour and how…
There’s still many people trying to prove many genetics otherwise than what’s out there known still too, I know a couple who are trying to prove some things (let’s just say they think they own many new genes even though I will say, all out there now and talked about online or Lmr site…)
I’ve also read you need a parent with ‘bullseye’ spots to make more with then. I’ve gotten many out and none on parents at all, so maybe a false claim out there but just an example.
Also Superstripe or empty back being recessive, I used to have a superstripe male and no others in lines that I know of, so unless a 1% chance carried I’m not sure… And I had an empty back female again with no others in line but she was producing them with random males she was put to before coming to me, and unfortunately was a lot the poor girl.
Unless I again had very secret low low low hets like my tangerine pair being het phantom, which I spoke to Lmr about the very little chance of them haha. I Know a few breeders too who’ve made EB with non EB parents and even switching pairs have gotten out.
Unless a lot more cresties about are het for many things no one knows, which is most likely case with a lot. Same with royals I suppose! Some surprises!
I think there’s so much more to work out with cresties. And to get every person to agree too is NOT going to ever be easy. They’re not easy and even I’ve hatched out or have in the past, strange ones I’m trying to work out
Also the hypo on black base producing lavenders I’m curious on… as then says on red base produces pinks/neon reds. Which I knew. But I’ve been thinking,
As the Only reason I knew Akira was hypo was because her red tricolour baby I was holding back (mini her) turned lavender, so red based not black, she’s actually made another lavender (Lilly) with a red male too.
And we’ve also gotten a hypo from a red pair, neither to me or anyone else do they appear hypo though, and this hypo isn’t neon red/pink either
Still so much to work out
