Calculate With Ad

Ever imagine what kind of combos you could produce with an animal you are looking at? Perhaps you like to use our gene calculators to explore different possibilities.

We've just made that easier by adding a Calculate button to the ad page which drops its traits right into the gene calculator (for applicable species).

It initially crosses the traits with a normal. Just click the righthand box to update the right parent to whatever you choose. Let your imagination run wild!

Codominant or Incomplete Dominant?

In the Reptile hobby, we classify mutant genes based on how they interact to morph the animal's appearance from its wild form. An animal may carry zero, one, or two copies of a mutant gene. If it only carries one gene (i.e., half the pair), we refer to it as the heterozygous form since it has the mutant gene paired with a the normal/wild type gene. When the pair is present, the animal is said to be homozygous for that gene.

Genetics Updating Improved

MorphMarket has one of the most comprehensive databases of reptile genetics in the world, and we're constantly improving and expanding it. Our genetics engine is at the heart of our site and powers the search, ad importing, genetic calculators and more.
