    Default Different Levis Levis. Any experience with this?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    It's been a while since I've posted as due to work I decided to give my animals a break this season (really give me a break). I have hatched unusual levis levis in the past as they are highly variable however, there are 2 that really stand out to me. The first I hatched and produced 2 very unique animals. The 2nd time happened recently when someone I traded animals to bred them and they hatched something very interesting, which is back in my possession now. I've posted the first animals and will post the other shortly but am really curious as to everyone's experience with variability within levis levis?

    I've seen 2 primary vectors of variability - the first being pattern and the second being color(Note: edited the "pattern" statement here as I had intended to mention pattern and then color but said pattern twice accidentally, may be obvious but want to be clear) . One unexpected variability included both color and pattern while the second is color only.

    This is an interesting topic and I can't wait to see your pics. Just browsing the forums and available animals I have also seen a large amount of variability, especially in color. Not just hypes and high reds but also animals with dark heads and tails but with light bodies and so on. I've also seen these differences with amyae particularly in head and body pattern intensity and "clarity" meaning how distinct the pattern is from the rest of the body. Some animals patterns sort of diffuse into the body while others appear crisp and bold. That's just from observation.
    1.1.0 Eublepharis macularius
    2.1.0 Rhacodactylus ciliatus
    1.1.0 Nephrurus amyae
    1.0.0 Nephrurus levis levis

    Agreed, I also find it very interesting. My line of N.l.l originated from a single male and 2 females and I've been amazed how variable the offspring have been. Once this new critter gets a bit more settled in I'll post some pics of it as well as others within the line. I do find the "normals" just as fascinating as the ones that differ a bit! Can't help but get a kick out of how they act like such tough guys when they are young!
