I admit it.
I am horrible at remembering some of these names of the combo morphs.
Some of them are pretty simple (Bumblebee, Pastave, etc..), but some of them I can't remember for the life of me which morph it involves.
Perfect example is the Black Magic.
The Black Magic is apparently a Black Pastel Mojave, which I produced for the first time here this year, 2011.
The Savannah is a Cinnamon Mojave, which I also produced for the first time here this year.
|Hey look! A Savannah and a Black Magic|
The Savannah has a lighter overall coloration, with a less dramatic color from spine to stomach. It also has a lighter head. In the more dramatic Savannahs, the blushing is very intense and the pattern is pushed almost halfway up the body.
The Black Magics are all very dark (of course), with a dark head and deep gold tones, deeper than the Savannahs. The pattern is not dissipated as it does with some Savannahs.
The photos hopefully show the overall tonal differences between the two.
Now, here is the question I have...
What do you call a Black Pastel Lesser?
Apparently there is no fancy name for it...
I produced this girl last year, 2010, on accident in a Mystery Clutch. At first I thought she was a Pewter. YAY for learning....
Anyway, she looked like this as a baby. Completely different shade of color, head was VERY Black Pastel like (but brighter), and an overall silvery body coloration, similar to that of a Pewter.
And now, not so much. You can tell she is not a Pewter.
Here I go, off to daydream and plan.
Have a great day, my friends.
