    Hidden co dominant?

    Hi all, I'm quite new to this and haven't been able to find a definitive answer, sorry if it's been covered.
    Basically I bought a fire female yesterday, her parents were cos Mojave and a firemon.
    I'm right in thinking no Mojave or cinnamon will be carried if it's not visible yes?
    The other question is about cos mojave's, they are a line of Mojave sold here in the UK, they are listed on world of ball pythons.
    Basically the cos Mojave and all of its offspring seem to have a green/grey colouring to the flank/Flame area, how can this be carried to all morphs, my snake is barely showing this yet but the breeder said there's a good chance she will going on the other snakes?
    Maybe another subtle co Dom? Or something else?

    The cos mojave is basically just another line of mojave and if the breeder is reputable thr mojave came from a cos mojave pairing. There isn't a 'hidden gene' as much as it is just another like akin to the many lines of pastel ( lemon, citrus, etc.) what the breeder is saying is that even though your mojave doesn't look like the traditional cos mojave, it can create cos mojave babies due to the lineage that the snake is from, i.e. A cos mojave pairing

    Uhhu, I understand that part, it's the fact that my snake isn't a cos Mojave, it's father was. Mine is a fire but her and other non Mojave siblings seem to have gained an odd Flame colour...

    The breeder actually thinks he see's co Dom granite in them, holds little weight without proof I guess...
    I will get some pics up soon.

    Your snake does not carry the mojave gene so any odd coloring is due to either the fire, a dinker gene or is just normal variation in the coloring of the fire gene.

    Pictures are always the most helpful.

    If your fire is not a mojave, the parents being mojave shouldn't matter, as far as I am aware. It's like the old tactic of selling normals as "pastel siblings", because other hatchlings in the clutch were pastels?

    Pics don't really show it but on the above shot you can see a green tinge inside the curle, its was much much more prominent on the father and I was told in increases with age?

    Is this odd or a normal fire trait people?

    I believe it's an odd normal but hey you can always buy a proven fire and breed it and see if you get Lucy's
