I just really noticed this section of the forum, and thought I would post and see what you guys thought of "Ruby". She's my Eastern Hognose. I call her "Red Phase", and it's obviously genetic, but please let me know your opinions on her and her looks.

Is it genetically inheritable? Have you done breeding trials? Dominant, co-dom, recessive?

Well she's a wild caught adult, and shorly after she was captured, she layed 11 eggs. They were incubated and six of them hatched. One looks completely normal, four of them have red necks and one of them is alost as bright as she is. I'm working on pics.

Here is a pic of two of her babies. They all vary in color quite a bit.

It kind of confuses me. It appears to be a color morph in the sense that Bearded Dragons have them. How there are no true hets or co-dom. Just animals that take after thier parents. Either way, there is one baby that is simply amazing, and I'm really hoping that it's a male so I can breed it back to momma.

I'm posting in this thread to show why you shouldn't move your pictures around once you insert links to them in a thread.

LOL...no kidding!

I'm seeing the OP...then the images and I'm thinking..."Oookkaaaayy....?"

THEN I'm reading the replies....and wondering, "Does anyone else see what I see? Is there an inside joke I'm not in on??"

.....and then I see the thread is 2 yrs old.
