PostSubject: Help needed. Babycurus jacksoni "Chocolate Morph"   10/3/2013, 8:52 am

Hi all. Been away for a while dealing with some personal matters but hope to be back a bit more frequently

I need some help regarding Babycurus jacksoni Chocolate Morph

A friend of mine mated a pair of chocolate morph (no doubts about them both being chocolate) and the female has given birth to four chocolate morph scorplings and one normal coloured scorpling

Would this be a normal occurrence or why would you think this happened?

Any suggestions would help scratch 

Thanks

I had two C sculpturatus that gave birth to to normal and xeric morph babies.

A species is "a group of living organisms consisting of similar individuals capable of exchanging genes or interbreeding."

So in short, yes it is entirely possible. Maybe the gene for the orange coloration is a recessive gene.

The normal varience is still in the genes.

Shane said that both mates were chocolate morph, which means in order for the specific brood to be possible, both parents would have both dominant and recessive alleles, or in scientific terms "heterozygous". On the chart, it's known as a monohybrid cross (in this case it would be displayed as Yy +Yy), and the phenotype (observable characteristics) is always 3:1 ratio with a monohybrid cross.

So if your friends Babycurus gave birth to 5 children -- 4 chocolates and 1 normal -- it's because both parents were heterozygous. Because the rate at which they can produce a normal colored offspring is 25%, and I'd say that matches up to the results of the brood.

What a Face bounce  I love biology!

Thanks a lot guys. So for breeding purposes when the brood reach adulthood, should he treat the chocolates as chocolate, and normal colour one as a normal, or would it be best not to breed with the normal one?

I was just pointing out how the traits work but Patcho is correct, this specific chart wouldn't apply but you can make your own Smile

You can breed them all together as long as they are all Babycurus jacksoni. People on the internet are very stingy about breeding, but we're just talking about a single characteristic here. Chocolates + chocolates, normals + chocolates, and normals + normals can all breed together.
