Everyone is praising him on how great it is because there are hardly any Tokay people on there.
    Let me guess, he wants to sell him through one of those Pacific Rim Tokay Trading Companies for thousands of dollars. (See other thread, "No words for this site...").

    It's sad how many people contact me looking for Tokay over 400 grams. Really? And they are not looking for a big display animal, they're looking for something to flip for big bucks.

    Let's please try to keep this thread focused on morphs. And no, the obese morph doesn't count!

    Was that BHG fighting with its brother? Looks like he has some teeth marks on him.

    Super Red Update:

    So, based on my review of punnett squares I will put forth my hypothesis of genetics from what I know now.

    Since my original pair looked to be both Super/Dominant forms, I assumed to see all visual Super Reds. This has not been completely true since they have thrown a couple of normal looking offspring now and again.

    This would suggest that one of them is actually a co-dominant of the form. But the results do not exactly match the p squares' predictions in this regard either. I'm told this happens in other reptile breeding projects where a mystery normal pops out even though the pairing was of two proven dominant animals put together.

    I've breed my F-1 Super Males to other recessive morphs. So far, the first prodigy are starting to turn red. Young reds look fairly normal but will show a red sheen under an L.E.D. light and may have a brownish , rather than gray background. After about 3 months they start to turn red.

    These should now be co-dominant, or High Red animals. (Plus being het for the recessive morph in this case.) It will still be several months before we see their final appearance. And it will take several more years to prove out further and confirm these observations that I've made at this point.

    But given that these are most likely dominant and co-dominant respectively, as apposed to recessive, we now have a better sense of what to expect from the Super Reds.
