I'm feeling Lucky tonight

I find it absolutely fascinating watching particular animals grow up and change over the years, and Lucky the Silver Bullet is the one I am going to focus on today. He hatched out SILVER, very bright, solid colored and beautiful.

It has been a little less than a year since he hatched out, and he has changed drastically in terms of coloration and pattern.

He has changed a lot since he was hatched, and it is clear that there was a lot of growing to do in terms of developing into his adult colors and form. 

He has developed light gray spots on his back and sides, but has kept his paradox spot towards the midsection of his body.

His belly has become a mottled gray as well, and his head and overall color has darkened considerably. 

He is still considered patternless, as there is no distinct pattern to discern, but he does have a mottled appearance compared to his hatching colors.

I find it very interesting how drastic his colors have changed, but I really believe that he is a great example of the morph, and a beautiful male to boot. I am looking forward to using him in the future for combos and such, and also producing a Super Pewter to compare coloration again in the next few years. I'm sure it will be just as drastic, but will settle at a lighter tone than Mister Lucky, the Silver Bullet.

We shall see soon, I would hope.

Have a fantastic day, my friends.

Aw, I love his white belly!

He's darker and more mottled now, but he isn't browning out as much as some silver bullets I've seen. I think he's a good one.
