:Melanin IS being produced. . .or there would be no white.

:I hope I get these spellings correct:

:Yellow is produced by the pigment Xanthin
:Red is produced by Erythrin
:Black is produced by Melanin
:White is a result of no pigments being produced.

:No black means no melanin.
:

Ok you have a good point there. . .can you explain why the amelanistic gene would affect the appearance of the snake BEFORE the hypomelanistic gene would have a chance?

peace,
Ian
