    i can’t seem to grasp the idea that 2 normal looking snakes can produce a paradox randomly, but if you breed 2 paradox, you get a normal looking animal?! Why aren’t the babies keeping the black?! From my eyes, it should be the same as trying to line breed a certain feature, for example a stripe?? Or even just breeding 2 albinos would produce an albino, so why aren’t paradox x paradox producing? Are there other mutations like this?

    Can someone explain please, it hurts my head

    I’ll upload a few pages out of a book. Don’t know if you get your answers. I was told it was random phenomenon.

    Chimera don’t ask me what the difference between paradox and chimera is

    If I hatched or was given one I’d read up on em but only interested inheritable traits as cool as they are
