Monitor Lizard traits - Category upgrade!

In preparation to promote Monitor Lizards to a top level category, we need to build a trait list for the genes and combos.

For each of these, we need to know what kind of gene it is (recessive/incdom/dom) OR what combination of genes represent it.

Also any hyribs that are know to be both viable and non-viable.

Please add anything that is missing or correct me where I am wrong.

If you know anyone that work with Monitor Lizards, send them a link to this thread and ask them to help out.
