Hi just joined the forum I live in the uk I keep fire salamanders tiger salamanders plus several other reptiles and I have just acquired some Spanish ribbed newt eggs and the parents are normal coloured female and a leucistic male any ideas on what's going to emerge is it a recessive gene or co dominant or something sex linked any information will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers Tony

It is also my understanding that is a simple recessive gene.

Yep. Simple recessive. If the female was het for leucistic you will get 50% leucistic offspring.

The salamander section of the forum is a good spot to post a question.

Yes the guy I got them from didn't know the genetics of the female so if I get any leucistics I will know she she was a het thanks again for the feedback.
