Adsl helps,and I even reduced the picture sizes :-)

I have since added a candy cane male (thanks Chantel :-)) and a pewter female (both adults) to my collection.

What would happen if you cross for example your
Ghost Motley-Stripe Female with a Silver Motley Male, or does it deppend on how strong their genes are?

If i had to cross my Ghost motley-Stripe with a Silver motley (no extra hets or genetics involved)
I would get all Anery A (Silver) motley's,which would be het for Hypo,50% poss het stripe.

Ghosts are homozygous for Anery A (Silver) and hypomelanism. Hypo is the reduction of melanin or black pigment.

Het=heterozygous meaning it is carrying one copy of the gene but the snake itself does not display that gene outwardly ie. you can't see it.

Though some hets do have "markers" indicating that they are carrying the gene.

Where would one start to look for these markers? How do you know what gene it's carrying, will each type have a different marker, how many different markers are there?

SOME het motleys display motley-like characteristics, like the joined saddles etc but still have checkered bellies.

SOME het bloodred/Diffused have a certain head pattern and sometimes a "stripe" down the middle of their belly.

And SOME amel het caramels are more yellow in colouration.

Those are the only ones that I can think of this second...it's not always the case though, so not all amels het caramel will look more yellow.

Basically you can't tell for sure what hets your snake might have, just get hints to the possibilities...lol

Only way to know for sure is to breed them to another snake that is (preferrably) homozygous for the gene in question.
