Blue phase green anole
Sun Dec 25, 2011 19:33

It looks as if I will be purchasing a Blue Phase Green Anole in the near future, this is a project I have yearned for and drooled over for years.

I will keep everyone here unformed on the projects progress, failures, and triumphs if there are any.

I have always thought the future of green anoles as pets depends on elevating them out of their throw away status. If this project pans out, I believe this wonderful small reptile can become a spectacular boost for the species in terms of respect.

PS. Bob, if you are still out there, any words of wisdom on how your Yellow pharae green anole project went would be great.

The one I am looking at is female, so my thoughts are that initial progress will be slow.

      I have been working with a Yellow Phase Green Anole for more than a year (a male) without any positive results. It appears that such mutations are strictly recessive and that a second specimen of the ... more

        Are you saying that Yellow x Normal do not produce 100% het Yellow offspring. My assumption would be that in that particular cross all offspring would appear normal but carry the genetic trait. Thus: ... more

          BTW Merry Christmas Bob, wasn't sure you were still alive even and did not want to insult anyone. Maurice Pudlo

            I don't think that it is a straight forward genetic relationship. I suspect that there are multiple alleles involved. I happened upon the Green Anole Genome site and have been trying to digest all of ... more

              That seems right now that I think about it, your Yellow is double homozygous for two traits, missing both brown and blue coloration. In that case I can see how even with double hets being produced by ... more

                A true blue phase would be missing both yellow and brown. It would be the same situation as the yellow phase genetically. The only solution that I can see is breeding to like morph. There is a bloke... more

                  I do not believe you need a female Yellow Phase Green Anole, it would surely simplify things and move your project along. Please take a look at the following and just consider what I'm suggesting, I... more

                    April 7, we just produced our first offspring from the pairing of our blue phase green anole female to a southern green anole male with a yellow dewlap (now a recognized subspecies). We hope to back... more

                    Quite frankly, until I finally get through the genetic material that I found on the Green Anole Genome site, I won't know exacly where the locus (or loci) for the various color strata are located.... more
