THANK YOU! As an owner of a Mack Snow Enigma (and a future breeder of Super Snow Enigmas, I hope!), I find these sorts of comments to be almost personal attacks on myself. Wrex has essentially NONE of the Enigma Syndrome issues. The "circling" that is often talked about only occurs when Wrex gets too excited about whatever is going on. Sorry, just needed to vent!
I am kind of new to the whole breeding part of reptiles but using words like "only when", and "a little" are just ways of hiding the fact that it's a genetic defect that is ok when it's just a little or when when they are excited. No matter the amount or situation it takes to bring the defect to show, it's still a defect none the less. This is not a personal attack on anyone who breeds, owns or loves Enigma's it's just my opinion on promoting a nerological defect that sometimes even makes feeding these a issue. In the wild I know most if not all current morphs would not exsist but for sure the Enigma would be the one that died do the lack of ability to even catch food.Best of luck to making Super Snow Enigmas
The only Enigmas that we have that have any issues at all are albino Enigmas (Bell, RAPTOR).. our Mack Snow Enigmas that we keep and produce do not exhibit issues really.. some had the wobbles *a little* but that was it.. our Super Snow Enigma does not show any signs of any type of issue whatsoever
A very good question. Unfortunately, as far as I know, nobody knows why. I think that eventually someone will figure it out, but the research is likely to require sacrificing some animals for dissection and microscopic examination. And nobody with a big bank account has volunteered to fund it.Why do Engimas have a neurological issue anyways? Does anyone know exactly why?
