dumbo / big ears

I've been seeing a lot of dumbo or big ears bettas on ebay, but they all seem to be on plakats. Are there any big ear halfmoons or big ear rose tails? I'm still pretty new, so I'm trying to read up as much as I can, but I haven't seen this yet...

A Fish Called Jayne - White Marble Half Moon
Coco - Chocolate Veil Tail
Gimli - Teeny Red Crown Tail
The Bursar - White and Red, Butterfly Half Moon

i think since it's a recessive gene, and a fairly new development at that, it might be difficult to combine successfully with other recessive genes like the "fancier" tail types. give it time, we might see some dumbo HM's soon.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

Yes there are dumbo HM. I'm not a fan so I don't really pay much attention to them. But they do exist.
