You feed 'em we breed 'em
My question is has anyone crossed a Mack Snow with either Line Bred Snows, Gem Snows, or TUG Snows and produced Super Snows?
Do you know if the Mack Snows were Super Snows or the "het version?"okapi said:Ive heard that:
Mack X linebred = super snow
Mack X gem = Super snow
and im pretty sure that the urban geckos snows were sold for the first time in 2006, so I doubt they have been crossed enough to test.

Depends what you mean if you mean;
mack snow X line snow = 25%mack super snow_50%mack snow_25%line snow then it's a NO:main_thumbsdown: .
It's more along the lines of.
mack snow x line snow = 50%mack/line snow_50%line snow then.
mack/line snow X mack/line snow = 25%mack/line super snow _50%mack/line snow_25%line snow.
I think it would be the same sort of result with TUG & GEM ??.First generation NO super snows when breeding out of the mack line. Second generation yes when you breed back into the mack line a kind of combo mack/line super snow_mack/TUG super snow_mack/GEM super snow.
okapi said:Since there have not been any super snows from gem X gem breedings or linebred X linebred I would assume that the mack gene can just completely dominate them in their loci and so they dont even get to show a blending of the traits. Similar to how the wild form is completely dominant over the mutant tremper albino gene in its loci. Meaning there are various degrees of dominance and recessiveness as opposed to the plain "on" or "off" switch idea.

If thereâ€™s an absolute ideal for this type of morph, we think this is it. We acquired this incredible gene pool as a wild-caught group four years ago and we have been selectively breeding them ever since. There is much debate surrounding this unique and wonderful morph. From our breeding results, we believe our bloodline is a type of axanthic, a genetic trait where the subject has little or no yellow pigment. In most cases this trait has been proven to be recessive but in our group, we have proven it to be dominant. Our exclusive Snows are unrelated to any known in captivity, boasting incredible white coloration and reduced black spotting. This is truly a rare opportunity to acquire this remarkable lineage.
