  • Hypo or super hypo?

    my wife and i are just now gettin into genetics and we just aquired this new girl today and judging by the BLACK (my wife says its brown) outlining the blotches on her tail, i would say she is just Hypo..... and my wife believes she is super hypo or hypo/het for something.... WHAT WOULD YOU SAY......





    My wife wants to know if this could be an example of co-dominance.....

    ya it looks like a hypo to me it might possibly be a salmon (just a form/line of hypo) but supers tend to have reduced patters and some striping from what i have seen but i have not seen very many super hypos so i dont really know

      There really is no way of telling other than to breed her. I've seen some wicked hypos turn out to be het when bred. The other way around too.

      Good luck in finding out though!!

          Here is a few pics. You still would need to breed them to know for sure if these are supers.

              Really unless you know the lines she came from it's so hard t tell just by looking at pictures. Either way she is awesome looking and should produce some sexy babies

                I forgot to add your boa is beautiful and even if it is not a super, it is a animal you can be proud of. In the pictures, I was just trying to show you the different lines (salmon or orange tail)

                  If both her parents were not hypos then there is no way she can be a super. Remember that for any given trait we receive one piece (allele) from each parent. A super hypo has two hypo pieces (alleles) and are standard hypo has one hypo and one normal. When an animal has two different alleles they are termed heterozygous. Supers are homozygous animals (both alleles the same).

                      If you don't know the genetics then the only way to find out is to breed it and prove it out, like others have already said. Some people will tell you that supers won't have black or dark rings around the tail saddles or that a super won't have a black "mustache" or so many other descriptions but this is not true and there are supers that may even appear sub-par as well as hets that are outstanding.
