MorphMarket Gene/Trait Updates

Just applied our monthly genetics update, including revisions to Ball Pythons, Crested Geckos and Corn Snakes. Since May we’ve performed 7 updates (Nov & Dec were combined). Having this schedule has been a much better process than before.

If you need to request an update, follow the instructions here:…/how-to-request…/119

We aren’t the genetics experts, but we do consult them. In 2021, we plan to form advisory teams of experts per category and perform a systematic review of our entire genetics database. Following that, we’ll implement a more rigorous screening process for the updates.


Is there somewhere that the changes are listed?

Was the Jolliff Tiger being co-Dom added to this or will it be in a different update?

@westridge I have not listed the changes to date, TBH because I don’t want backlash over each detail, especially given that there are probably a number of details that need to be worked out as it is. I plan for us to have a more formal process after we do a full expert review of our genes this year, and then will be more transparent about the changes. Namely we are a bit lax about adding new genes, if someone will fill out the form. But to be fair to them I’d need to show all that info as well, and all of this starts to add a lot of friction to a process that is currently lightweight.

That being said I do usually involve the forum around CHANGES to the existing data here, it’s more about the additions.

@serpentswitch117 I’m glad you brought that one up. I had a note to do this, but I could not track down where that requested had come in, either on the forum or email or FB. Now I found the thread here: Jolliff Tiger Super Form
and promise to fix it this month.

This is great, I have a few myself I was working on offline, should have it done in a few more days. The only thing I noticed was Softscale is incomplete dominant not dominant. You can visually see the super form and we even have some macro shots showing some of the differences in the scalation. Here’s a couple from the original post we made on this with AC Reptiles.


Whoops, that was my bad :blush:. I meant to say that Soft Scale had been changed to Inc-Dom.
