    Ultra Ivory

    The Ultra Ivory was first produced by Ben Siegel, out of his line of Yellowbellies that he named Orange Belly. The genetics behind the Ultra are still being explored, but it appears to be a combo with some other gene involved. Some of the Orange Bellies, when bred together, have a chance of producing not only the typical Ivory we'd expect from a Yellowbelly pairing, but may also throw Ultra Ivory and Graphite Ivory. It is Ben's belief that the Ultra is carrying a heterozygous gene separate from the YB/Ivory mutation, and the Graphite is the homozygous form. More breeding is needed to prove out these theories.

    The Ultra Ivory differs from the more common Ivory in its distinct coloration. It is hatched with very prominent yellow, peach and lavender markings that intensify as it gets older. As it approaches adulthood, however, the colors begin to fade toward the more muted familiar Ivory.
