    Default Details on COLD FUSION kiddo

    This is my favorite CF production as of yet. I took photos with my good camera (the last photo not included) to show some detail on this base color and possibly melanin scattering going on. This animal is around three and a half months old and has changed from a dark base to what is showing here. I have also seen it have an orange look at times. It is typical for the yellow and brown tones to fade in this line. Most hatchlings start off with coloration like this one shows in the last photo.

    They almost look like gargoyle geckos. Love it! What a gorgeous baby.

    Thanks. In the previous generation the base color smoothed out as they progressed into the bluish coloration. It is still a waiting game to see where this goes.

    Have you seen melanin scattering in any other color bases? This kid looks so awesome!

    Melanin scattering is just a theory at this point and the genetic contributor, to whatever it really is, is unknown at this point. I have never seen anything like this before in any base color. It may be possible in other base colors because it probably doest affect every dermal layer. I have seen evidence of this in one animal as of now.
    I did outcrosses to other base colors this year. I'm just waiting for the little ones to grow out now.
