    Freeway Highway

    Has everyone ever made a freeway highway?

    Is it even possible to make one?

    I already have a highway, and can eventually buy a freeway, I used a morph market calculator and my results are in the photo below.

    Are these not compatible the way the different axanthic lines arent compatible?

    I'm willing to put in the years to accomplish this no matter how long it takes but is it even possible? Lol

    It would not be possible to have all those 3 Genes in one snake. These genes are Allelic genes so when you breed a Highway (yb gravel) to a normal (WT), the Yb will pass on to half the clutch and gravel will pass on to the other half only, as this these are allelic traits from this pairing of Highway to normal you will never have a Highway in the clutch. So you see there would never be a chance to stack three genes from this Allelic complex.

    But you can make an asphalt gravel if you really wanted to. Although they are really nice, I think it's better to keep them separate lines because super gravel or super asphalt are both just as nice and i fear if people continue to mix them, eventually the line will be blurred and they may not continue to be their individual morph. It is obvious to me that they are quite different but i think they are close enough that by mixing them we will eventually get to the point that people are selling them as the same morph. I personally like asphalt quite a bit better so i will continue to work with it exclusively. My suggestion would be to pick whichever you like better and stick to making the super form mixed with whatever other morphs you like, there is still tons to be done with them without needing to mix them.

    A friend of mine who I asked this same question to, told me about asphalt/gravels and I agree with you both. I will not be mixing the two morphs but I will make separate combos with each one added with YB.
