Blue Phase Anoles
Tue Dec 27, 2011 10:37

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. That might take a while since I don't have a large "super computer". I speculate that there might be a sex linkage to color but the overall sample of both yellow and blue morphs is so small that it is not possible to say for certain whether the specimens are correctly identified in regard to sex since they are mostly possesed by "newby" hobbists that still ask how to tell the sexes apart.
Certainly, if someone ere able to assemble a breeding pair of one or the other color morph, there would be a significant introduction into the market which hasn't happened. Again, there has been so little research done in the field of Green Anole color morphs that the actual mechanism is not well understood. That is mainly because they occur at a ratio of roughly 1:20,000 and most of those are removed by predators before they are collected.

    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
