Skink traits - Category upgrade! [DONE] [1558]

In preparation to Promote Blue Tongue Skink 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.

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

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

    • T. r. palarra — Northern Bobtail or Shark Bay shingleback

Sunset, Turner white and Fenn White(if differentiating whites), Magma, Fenn orange and Orange crush.
All of these are polygenic lines


Honestly some of the traits on that list you would not find anywhere but Australia. Platinum, lava, etc.


How does the above look now?

Looks good. Personally I would say T+ is Mendelian inheritance because the eye color is changed from orange to grey. Also, I think turner white is polygenic.

I also noticed several blue tongue skinks and a monkey tail skink listed in the ‘other lizards’ category. Is it easier for you guys if each miscategorized ad is reported?

I do love all the new categories! I love to browse things just for fun.
