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:
In a Het Yellow x Yellow cross each egg would have a 50:50 chance of producing Yellow offspring.

In a Het Yellow x Het Yellow cross each egg would have a 25:50:25 of producing Normal, Het Yellow, Yellow offspring respectively.

In a Normal x Het Yellow cross each egg would have a 50:50 chance of producing either Normal or Het Yellow offspring.

    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

        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

                    Wow this is great news! Yellow dewlap you mean A. carolinensis seminolus? I love this subspecies, it has amazing morphological traits. But I wonder why did you choose a male seminolus over a... more

                      Yes, the male is A.c.s., he was purchased along with the female and they were shipped together. It would not have been my first choice as I am unsure of her age. Regardless, having already been... 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

                    Bob, If you have a moment please Email me at MauricesExoticPets@Gmail.com, I have some information for you on the blue phase project you may find interesting. Maurice
