    Random "Highway" & "Freeway" morph question...

    So Highways and Freeways are both at the top of my "favorite BP morph list". Yet I've never seen one in person and I'm pretty positive all the pics I've seen are juveniles.

    So my question is, how do they age? Do they maintain the high contrast and do the yellows stay bright?? I see pastel in a lot of them too. How does pastel affect their colors as they age?

    Pics of adults would be greatly appreciated if anybody has them. And progression pics would be a fantastic bonus.

    This is primarily curiosity, since I don't see them falling into my price range any time soon. But I just love love love these morphs and would love to see some adults.

    Thanks in advance...

    I've seen some very impressive Highways and Freeway adults at expos marked as 'Display Only' (retaining their full color/contrast). I suspect that these were exceptional examples, but, it proves that it is possible.

    Imo, freeways hold their color a little better, that's the main reason I went with asphalt over gravel. The freeways start out quite a bit darker and bolder so even though they fade as well, their color can still be quite impressive as an adult. I'll get a pic of my freeway boy tonight. He doesn't have pastel but he still looks really good and has nice contrast and he would be considered an adult at about 1000g, I'm actually expecting a couple of his clutches any day now.

    And then this is my boy, he has a bit more color than the other example but you can still see how he's looking more like the adult. His girlfriend is an inferno so they could make some really cool stuff, I think she only has about 5 eggs though so I'm really going to need some good odds. Wish me luck lol.

    Thank you so much! That's a perfect example of what I was looking for.

    Best of luck with the odds gods on that clutch!
