Description: Proven from a captive hatched animal from africa - imported in 2008 - proven in 2014

Appearance: What it does/looks like? - A proven Granite-type mutation with pocketing and pixelation of the sides. Overall darker than wild-type.
Proven: To what degree it is proven out to not just be polygenic? - 7 seasons of recreating its exact appearance.
Why do you believe this is a new morph and not an existing one? - Looks different than other existing granite - type morphs - will take many additional years of future breeding to determine if it is the same as an existing linage.

At least one link to community discussion (ie forums) to demonstrate community acceptance: First Impression on the Pixel morph?



@jkobylka this animal here…

(Yellowbelly Pixel Redstripe) should theoretically disprove that it is a linage of Granite, as we would be looking at Highway Redstripe…


Wow that was a great observation!

Unfortunately I think you’re confusing “Granite” with “Gravel”


Oh geez. Didn’t catch that lol


Damn, my head must not have been screwed on properly this morning!
You are completely correct!


Just notice how beautiful the pixel gene is, even by itself.
