Thank you. All the other species that I plan on getting pairs of will also be Sci fi names. My bps are all named for pro wrestlers, lol.

I’m curious, what is “Lyly”? Some sort of line-bred trait?

I’ve been eyeing a male on MorphMarket that’s listed as a Matrix Lyly Tpos — he’d be a good fit for my Normal het Tpos I’d think!

Here’s her by the way:

From my understanding it’s an enhancer. I don’t believe it’s a “gene” per se. It’s not a dominant or incomplete dominant. I believe it’s its a specific lineage of brongersmai with clean lines, more vibrant colors, reduced blushing and fading. Kind of like how cherrybomb is a more intensely red line of bloods. Genetic calculators only label hatchlings as possible lyly. They won’t give a % for them. I’m very new to short tails. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable than me responds.

Funny because none of those are bloods lol. All three of them are Borneo short tails, which is mostly what I work with.

I guess when I see them, I just refer to them as bloods because of commonality of the name, as horrible as it is.

Super annoying when people say “Borneo Bloods” like there aren’t even brongersmai on the island of Borneo. The worst is “Sumatran Bloods” because there are the two species on Sumatra, so it could either be describing a brongersmai from Sumatra, or incorrectly a curtus.
