    The pastel and mojave genes are not members of the same gene complex. A pastave has two gene pairs of interest--a pastel gene paired with the corresponding normal gene and a mojave gene paired with its corresponding normal gene. Only genes of the same gene complex can be codominant/incomplete dominant. So pastave does not count.

    Codominance = Parts of the snake having one appearance and parts of the snake having a different appearance. This definition is inaccurate.

    The Burmese cat (cbcb) and the Siamese cat (cscs) have different colors because the cb and cs genes produce different amounts of melanin. Pictures of Burmese, Siamese and Tonkinese cats can be found in Wikipedia. The Tonkinese cat (cbcs) is intermediate in color because each color cell has a cb and a cs gene and each gene does its own thing. The two genes are codominant instead of incomplete dominant to each other because each gene produces a functional gene product.

    The only snake genes that I would call incomplete dominants in the strict sense are the amelanistic and hypo genes in the corn snake. Until other genes are characterized, we don't know for sure which are codominants and which are incomplete dominants. And arguing about which term to use is pointless.

    What does each Morph mean?

    I am very new to the snake world and trying to learn. I see all the posts naming different types of morphs , but I am having a little trouble differentiating them... How do you visually depict what morph the snake is? The very common ones I see are

    Spider
    pinstripe
    pastel
    Axanthic
    lesser
    GHI
    Fire
    cinnimon
    mojave
    Ghost

    if Iím looking at a snake at the store, how can I accurately depict what it is?
    thank you for your time on any/all responses

    Spend hours and hours on www.morphmarket.com and you will be an expert in no time.
    Just lock up your credit cards and your paypal account while you are browsing. Lol

    The ones you listed, with the exception of fire, are all pretty easy to visually differentiate. Some of the other morphs, like yellow belly for example, are harder to determine.

    I would research on morph market and WOBP and note the visual characteristics of the moprhs you are interested in. Odds are, if you see a BP at a store and it looks "normal", then it is a normal and not a morph. I would also advise buying from a good breeder vs. a store, as they can give you background info on the snake, tell you about feeding habits, parents, etc. But again, check reputations before you buy from anyone either here or on the fauna classifieds BOI.
