Desert Ghost 🤔


This boy shows plenty of markers for being DG, wear do you think? I’ve heard yes I’ve heard no. He’s also hypo for sure.

What other genes are present besides the hypo? The ones you know for sure. That guy is smoking by the way! Super Nice!

The pairing was a hypo pastel enchi butter het DG × Spotnose Yellowbelly dbl het

Figured that by the amazing headstamp! It looks desert ghost to me. Full disclosure I don’t work with dg so I’m going by what I’ve seen from people I know that do work with dg.

Yeah this whole clutch has been fun since there’s nothing to compare to genetic wise ha

I just want to say… that is an awesome clutch variation but just also completely beautiful. Definitely a good job with that clutch :grin::+1:

Agreed this clutch with the few dbl visuals isn’t going to disappoint at all as they grow

Possible. It is rather bright and clean. My pastel desert ghost is much more highlighter yellow.

What do DG het markers look like?

I would say the DG is there. The color, though muted by the Hypo, is still pretty intense. I love the hypo gene. When you add it to most combos, it takes it up a level. However, I think when visual Hypo is combined with DG, it detracts from the DG. It’s great to have combos with both, for working with the genes simultaneously. But the Hypo tones down the intensity of the look when DG is by itself. Beautiful animals just the same.

A lot more genes at play here though and pastel DG is hard to beat on brightness

There’s not DG het markers that I’m aware of other than just a little brighter of a snake from my experience

Thank yeah I think it could be DG but agree hypo makes it harder to ID for sure
