    Here we have the first caramel albino hatched this year in Australia.
    this is also the key to producing a moonglow.

    Yes it is. Albino is a Darwin morph and Caramel is a Coastal morph

    I thought you can get hypo Darwin's? So you could have a pure sunglow Darwin?

    I hatched it saximus.
    i have more CHONDROS it's not the only one.
    your animals that you hatched three years ago are polygenic. Not caramel albinos. You told me that you crossed a hypo coastal into albinism. It's not genetic.

    I bought these het caramels off simon stone a couple of years ago. He was the first one to prove out the caramel gene in this country. That's how I know this is the real thing.

    Yes saximus. Precision reptiles hatched the first sunglow in the world last season.
    this is the first in this country if not the Southern Hemisphere.

    There is also a possibility I have pulled off a sunglow jag which would be the second in the world.
    Will post pics in another thread as it gets older

    so a polygenic caramel is not genetic even when the pair produces them ever year and one i held back and breed to normal produced almost half a clutch

    if u can reproduce it it is genetic

    also hypo are genetic if they are not how do we have super hypos

    the one i got out 3 years ago is a caramel albino the 1 i got out 2 year ago is a hypo albino

    There are a few nice hypo Darwins around now. It would be interesting to compare the results of a hypo Darwin x albino Darwin, a hypo coastal x albino darwin, and a caramel coastal x albino Darwin.
