Here is my third albino alanis froglet. It seems to have a lot of yellow for an alanis. And the black spot on it's butt? I think it means he has to go poo LOL
That is true with albino mamals, but if you look at reptiles that are called albino, they have color...like an albino python is yellow and white. Albino bullfrogs are bright yellow. My frog's eyes are light, they glow reddish in light, but I can't really tell what color they are. I am not 100% sure they are albino, I just don't know what else to call them for now. Sara from Quality Captives has the same froglets I do, and she is going to send a tad in to get genetically tested...then I will probably know more.zoso said:Im a little confused with these Alanas frogs being called albino :?: Correct me if im wrong but is an albino not a creature missing most if not all certain pigments resulting in the "common" white skin , fur or hair and with pink eyes :?: Would you refer to a Blonde haired person with very white blond hair an albino ?Id think these are just a genetic flaw , have these abnormalitys been found in the wild or just captive breed ? Since the first one appeared have you kept a log or studied possibilities as to what has caused this, i find it very interesting and would love to read any of that information.They sure are an awesome looking frog , good luck with them. :wink: P.s. How are they with Light are they sensitive to it ?
Ok, I only remember a little about genetics from biology class....so if that is true, once the parents are gone, the "albinos" or whatever they are, cannot be produced anymore? In that case I think I'll have to start treating those two like royalty! I am not happy that I sold the other female now, I had two and sold one because it was an extra and was fighting with the one I have now.rmelancon said:You did not buy them directly from me but the others (3 that I know of) that are producing the "albinos" like you have my bloodline through Bill Wierts at Quality Exotics. The jury is still out on exactly what to call the odd coloration and what the exact genetics are but it seems to be a double recessive gene(s) which would mean the trait would only show itself when two f1's (possibly later) from my bloodline were crossed. This has not been proven but is my theory at the moment.
The odds of you having a different bloodline producing the same "albino" frogs is very small.
