    Rodger for what i know.

    The seller said that the mother was a hypo moon glow i think he said,
    And the father was a ghost carpet,
    I may have it backwards and they may not even have been,
    weather these phases even truely exist ?
    I havent spoken to him in years,
    But the parents he showed me at the time were exceptional looking animals.

    both parent looked similer to her but not quite as light as she turned out
    female was axanthic, he called it the moon glow phase, as she had the bluish tinge
    male actually looked near identicle as the famale just with a bit more yellow,with a white dot in the middle of every scale.
    Both parents had the squiggly lines running down them with no band patterns like this one..
    as i said, he may have just said it to up the price i paid for her,
    but im more than happy with the result

    as i said, i havent spoken to him in years, and ive had her for just over 4 years,
    Ive never bred her, but def thinking about putting her over one of my males this year

    To me she looks like a true "Ghost" morph , carrying hypo genes for "reduced melanin" that would be Co Dom in its mode of inheritance and also carrying axanthics genes IE "reduced yellow" a recessive trait .
    Both traits can vary in their strength ,, on how much melanin or yellow is reduced etc .
    This female appears to have a strong hypo look which adds to her brightness and reduced black .
    The axanthics is also very strong with the slightest light blue coming threw in some scales.
    Its great to see the strong expression of both traits in this female.
    Now the hard part is proving out her looks.
    Or if the previous owner /breeder has already done so, then supply more info etc .

    I have been photographing reptiles for years and that is always a problem. In the flesh is always better.
