Description: A dark gene, brown in colour with a black back with red blushings/tones, clear head with red tones and reduced pattern

Appearance; What it does/looks like?

  • Head: brown with red tones,

  • Belly: lightly patterned belly, with dark markings
  • Tail: reduced side pattern, with stripe and or dotting

Proven Lines: only one line so far
Related Genes: none

Proven: To what degree it is proven out to not just be polygenic? I have made multiple combos with visible difference, including pied, clown and multiple codom crosses
Unique: Why do you believe this is a new morph and not an existing one?
I have made a few combos and compared them to the combos of what I think the gene closely resembles (cinnamon, Black pastel, HRA) and they look totally different.

Problems: Any problems? No Problems
History: The history behind its discovery? Bought a weird funky Black Pastel back in 2009/2010, bred it and noticed two different types of animals. Happened multiple times before eventually proving it out
Disagreement or Controversy: None

@t_h_wyman @owalreptiles any questions to be had here?


I would like to see more of the combos that are said to have been made. I would also like to see a few more representatives of the single gene. From what I can see here, it looks like this may be some variant of GBB


Hi. I’ve just uploaded a few more combo pics.


Hi. How are you? What is the status of the Nico gene being posted on morphmedia?


That is more a question for @eaglereptiles
