Name of Gene:
First produced by whom:
I’m not sure
I’m not sure, but I’ve got a female that is about 6-7, so likely it’s been around for a minute.
Genetics Type (Incdom/Codom/Recessive/Polygenic/etc):
In complex with other genes?:
Not that I’m aware of.
Other names/aliases for it?:
Not that I’m aware of.
In the specimens I have, the green is the first thing you notice. Then the nice black markings, they contrast nicely, especially since the color has a kind of “faded” look that I associate with hypomelanistic. They tend to fade more towards the belly. There’s definitely a degree of blushing in the black markings. The head also has a slight blush. Otherwise, mine don’t have any particular head stamp. Even the het I have seems to be greener than average but not nearly as “hypo” looking. It may be useful for people with a keener eye to elaborate more.
Green and black, but faded, “hypo”.
I haven’t met many people with them but to my knowledge it’s a proven, albeit not as popular, recessive morph that has been around for at least a decade or so. I have bought 3 total from 2 different sources, both in Florida. Most people familiar with regular hypo that I’ve spoken to have at least heard of green ghost.
It’s definitely not new, which is why I’m surprised it’s not on morph market already.
None are compatible that I know of. Hypo would be the closest related thing, I suppose, since this is just another hypo gene.
None that I’ve noticed.
I have none, but I will attempt to look some stuff up, as well as go back and see who produced the pair I bought earlier this year. That may help.
Disagreement or Controversy:
None that I’m aware of.
References here on the community:
I usually see green ghost brought up when people are questioning which types of hypo are compatible with which. I’ve seen it here once or twice and numerous times in Facebook.
At least one link to community discussion (ie forums) to demonstrate community acceptance:
Link to WOBP if exists:
Please attach 1-3 photos you have rights to which you are granting to be used on MorphMarket.
Other(if something not listed above, please use this section to explain what and why you would like changed):
The photos are of my male GHI green ghost and my female regular green ghost. I apologize for not having a proper photo setup.
The male I believe was produced by Wayne Grady. I don’t know about the female, since I purchased her years ago from a reptile shop.
It may be worth noting that babies seem to have MUCH more yellow in them. It apparently fades.
