Purchasing super dwarf retics

If you can not be told the exact percentage of super dwarf you are purchasing I would recommend not buying it. Do not take guesses or estimates either. You need to know the exact percentage of the animal. People can tell you all day that the animal should be around 90% all they want, but once you get the animal and you have had the animal for 3 years or less and it's already hit 15 feet means they out right lied or were unsure of the percentage of the super dwarf. Super dwarf is not a morph. Super dwarf and dwarf are locals of retics that stay smaller than mainlands and super dwarves stay smaller than dwarves. Dwarves can still reach pretty large lengths up to 16 feet and super dwarves stay aroun 9 feet and that 9 feet range being with females. Makes of course tend to stay a little smaller. The high the percentage of super dwarf the more likely that animal is going to stay smaller. So in ending, if they cannot provide the exact percentage or are just guessing, don't buy it. It keeps an unknown percentage animal out of the trade, which is important because if not known then you can only guess and if you can only guess then you can only sale what you know for sure. So say you have a pure kalatoa super dwarf and and unknown percentage super dwarf you can only list it as what you are sure of and that would be 50% super dwarf because you know the pure is pure and the other is uncertain. So you can only assume it has no super dwarf even if it is smaller, which makes you lose out on money because of the unknown. I hope this helps some of you out I understanding why it is so important in knowing the percentage. It's like being charged extra for a gene that is unknown for sure such as snow or albino. Would you pay more just because it is 50% het snow or 50% het albino? No.
