    Lesser

    The Lesser is a co-dominate color morph very similar to the Butter. Many believe they are different lines of of the same mutation because they both have a Blue Eyed Leucistic as their super form, even when bred together. The two have different histories, though, and are descended from two different wild-caught animals out of Africa.

    The Lesser was first produced by Ralph Davis in 2001. The original wild-caught animal was a stunning morph Ralph named "Platinum". When trying to determine whether or not the Platinum was dominant or recessive, Ralph was surprised to discover it was neither. The babies produced by the original Platinum (Or "Platty Daddy" as it became known) were either normals or a different morph that looked similar but not the same as the Platinum. Ralph called them "Lesser Platinums". Since then, the name has been most commonly shortened to just Lesser. It turns out the Platinum is a combo morph in which the other component is "hidden" in the normal offspring. A "normal" sibling bred back to the Lesser will produce a snake like the Platty Daddy.
