July or August James Wilson offered me a skink I could not pass up. He trusted that it would be well taken care of and wanted me to see if I could do anything with it.
say it's a tyrosinase+ albino but I know little of this condition.
Breeding it will prove if this even a recessive trait or otherwise.
Obviously finding a match isn't happening so my hopes is to simply match it with a normal indo with similar pattern and design to see what will come of it.
I'll probably then hold back the babies grow them up and breed them back to the mother if the trait seems to be a dominant one to bring the animals closer to the original white parent. If for some lucky reason all the babies are normal, I'll breed back the babies to the parent and see if the next clutch has a mixture of normal (but het) and "white" babies.
I'm not sure if I'll even be able to breed this animal. It takes a lot of luck and some skill, both of which may be lacking.
I am truly sad and devastated to report the passing of this amazing animal. I was truly hoping I would have my chance of breeding this skink this year.
