Morphs & Traits
This classic Tneg albino line is the most common and most variable of the hog color morphs. Ranging from Extreme Red to Pale yellow , this is probably the 1st morph you should add to your hog collection.
Extreme Reds and Purple Lines:
Basically a "dominant line trait" These are super enhanced reds I derived from gloydi localities that have been bred and refined to exhibit superior reds , burgundies and other dark colors with the exception of black.. most Extreme reds and purples are almost hypomelanistic in the fact they show almost no black except for the bellies.
Extreme Red Albino - Bright Red to Dark Red pattern + Tneg albino line.. large pattern almost no black except for belly
These lack red and yellow pigments. My animals have very clean greys, white and blues!! Besides being quite impressive visually these are vital to the production of Snows, Ghost , Toxic etc.. I have been working on a line which I call my blue axanthic line. They should be available soon.
A Classic Line Tneg Albino + Axanthic.
Originally mislabeled hypomelanistic these Tpos albinos can look quite impressive with a little red color added. Sometimes referred to as Dutch hypo due to breeders trying to "re-package" this trait. It has been proven through breeding to be one in the same.
A Tneg Paradox Albino Line (Leaky Gene albino) . A Very colorful and robust line this is one of my favorites to work with.We were the 1st breeders in the USA to import this line in and subsequently Identify the trait.
Tpos albino with very purple tones .. very attractive.
Unusual trait that affects the eyes and seems to highlight red quite a bit. The Eyes are entirely obsidian black . My line exhibit amazing reds unlike any other.. arguably the reddest line in existence.
Animals that do not exhibit the black eye trait but are from the "line".
High Pink Tpos albino, a unique strain of albino with soft gentle colors.
Classic Tpos Pastel Pink + Extreme Red
Co-dom similar to axanthic that produces a unique superform called the super artic.
A co-dominant trait originating from a hognose I collected and sold. These animals exhibit amazing pattern variations from reduced pattern, striping , spotting , banding , tiger pattern or display a mix of these styles.. almost never have two exactly the same..Breed two together and you will produce a "Superconda" superform that is patternless.
PurpleConda - Darkest Red of the Condas.. great for breeding to anything and producing the Purple Line Superconda!!
Toxic - (Tpos Paradox Snow)
Other Notable Traits:
This trait behaves in both a incomplete dominant fashion and co-dom.. depending on the animals you breed them too, more than likley the Jag gene interacts with another gene or genes like the one responsible for "green" , it exhibits the most awesome yellow and green coloration I have ever seen. Commonly displays a broken Jagged pattern that is quite impressive.
A possible sex linked trait very common in hognose lines, Most tend to be females (but not all).
Odd Vanishing pattern that occurs in a dorsal pinstripe .. this is not a break in the pattern but actually where the pattern is not present..almost like someone used an eraser!! Interesting.
A odd dark gloydi style variant with a crazy number of blotches that generally number around 45!!
A fantastic red dorsal stripe that appears "painted" over the snake pattern.. very cool common in both my Purple and Diablo Lines. I collected a female that had this trait several years ago and bred it into my lines. It produces the finest hogs imaginable.
Awesome animals with by far the best patterns and traits, Gloydi are a range variant that are stocky , brightly colored have a smaller "shovel" and tend to be larger in size. They have around 32-35 large squarish to circular
blotches and usually have the best colors such as reds.. most of my lines if not all have Gloydi blood in them.
Characterized by missing head pattern or headbands, this trait creates a very cool look.
We have produced a couple of these over the years.. still working with them trying to figure them out if genetic or not. Basically an albino that is showing normal patches of coloration.. this creates an impressive look.
Leucistic - A solid white hog with Dark eyes they have been plagued by issues over the years from illegal origins to problems with breeding and thriving. Several years ago I helped the Segwick Zoo try and save the last of their animals. In my opinion and experience prone to defect and other issues those animals were later dumped on the market at very Steep prices. Today several years later they are still quite rare either from breeding and health issues or??
Sable and Sableconda -Considered by some the ugly duckling of hog morphs, as they age they turn very dark, should be quite useful in creation of other morphs.
More to come...
