they are still the most adorable lizards out there! They have just as much character as a beardie, maybe even more. Christy


:James' babies do seem very light in color.
:As for morphs, what I've noticed is with NGs there is still a ton of genetic variety so breeders have not been able to narrow it down enough to get color morphs yet (in my opinion that is probably a good thing) and although you can get some that grow up like the parents, it really depends. Each baby seems to grow up very different in coloration and you dont really see their "final" color until about 2 years old--so you cant tell much from looking at a baby.
:However with aussies, there is a definite difference in silvers (normals that can actually show a wide range of color) vs reds--that is a locality difference technically. And they have a much more limited genepool in the US so would be easier to line breed for color/morphs.
:No albinos that I'm aware of.
:And really not enough breeders that have been trying to work at morphs--again, I think that is good--keep the genetics strong : )
:Dana

::I know that captive breeding of frilled dragons is pretty much in the early stages, but I was wondering, are there any albino, hypos, etc. out there that anybody knows about? I got a male from James back in October and he is one of the lightest colored frilleds that I have ever seen, I'm hoping that this is genetic. Thanks, Christy
