    multi gene mystery~!

    So I ordered a multi-gene male from Matt Lerer of GHI reptiles, he is the founder of the GHI morph. He bred a female to two different males, and one of the babies is so weird, he couldn't even identify it himself, and sold it to me for a great bargain imo!!!!
    The 2 possible sires are A) 1.0 super pastel super GHI lemonback, OR B)1.0 Pastel GHI Het red Axanthic.
    the dame was a 0.1 GHI Pastel Lesser.

    I asked Matt, the breeder and founder of the GHI morph, and he just said, "I couldn't tell you, I just know there are a lot of genes in there, could be almost anything!" He didn't even venture a guess, (as I think he doesn't want me (the buyer) to hold him to it.).
    I told him my guess is a 1.0 Super GHI Lesser pastel lemonback.

    Any one have an idea or guess?

    Dang that is one nice pickup! Couldnt really help you with morph but he will certainly put out a lot of interesting offspring when hes large enough to breed. Exciting!!

    I think the best way to identify the exact genes would be to breed him to a normal. Is that correct?

    It is certainly the recommended way - I know it does seem like "wasting" a season but it should give you most of the answers for the following seasons.

    7 adult Royals (2.5), 1.0 COS Pastel, 1.0 Enchi, 1.1 Lesser platty Royal python, 1.1 Black pastel Royal python, 0.1 Blue eyed leucistic ( Super lesser), 0.1 Piebald Royal python, 1.0 Sinaloan milk snake 1.0 crested gecko and 1 bad case of ETS. no wife, no surprise.

    well, it won’t be a waste if I breed him to 3-4 females, as the normal will be the indentifier dame, and the other morphs will make it interesting.
