I'm aware of certain "problems/diferences" in certain royals
Such as :
Albino - eye probs
Spider - neuro issues
cinny - smaller heads (apparrently)
Caramels - kink
just wondering what other morphs cary known defects and what effects does/can this have
I am doing a long study at college and i would like you to contribute. The question i am posing is:
Has captive breeding with reptiles gone too far?
I will be concentrating on snake defect genes which have come out since we have started breeding for specific morphs. particulary...
Where do you draw the line when breeding snakes? Would you breed two snakes if one had a slight tail kink, or a severe spinal kink or a major head wobble / balance issues? Would you breed for the colour of the animal regardless of any visual defects (because it's that good/expensive a morph)...
After touching on this on another thread, I thought I should start a proper thread in the appropriate area :2thumb:
