Rick,
I have come across a couple of Hi-yellow pastel colored Kenyans. They are adult males that have light tan spots with what the owner is referring to as "Lemon Phase" color. Is this a true strain of Kenyans? Have you or anyone else out there heard of "Lemon Phase KSB's"? They are remarkably different than the lighter colored yellowish orange KSB's.

Upon first glance, I originally thought they were hypomelanistic. Their yellow coloration is so pastel that there is hardly any visible distinction from the dorsal transition into the ventral white color. Their spotted pattern is more of a tan/buckskin, rather than dark brown.

Just one more question, if you wouldn't mind; is there a melanistic KSB floating around out there?

Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks for your time,
Scott
