Blue Phase Anole

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 the information there for almost 6 months. Unfortunately, there has been little work with coloration in Green Anoles according to my Duke University and University of Tennessee sources. Anyway, here is the website:

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

        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

                    I have lines of both A.c.s. and A.c.c. that I have been trying to use to produce this color phase. The number of years I have been working on this is just crazy. I believe the A.c.s. would work well... 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, I have some information for you on the blue phase project you may find interesting. Maurice
