Steel Marble Dragon PLKT X Silver and Black Dragon HM

This is am interesting spawn, the female is very unique se is a silver and Black Dragon the male is a steel dragon and has a couple unusual markings he has a white spot on the dorsal and it has a red dot in it..haha..if he didn't have the red wash he might be pretty decent, but y marbles aren't going to win any shows, the whole idea of this is to see inheritance, notice they are both marbles and I have been getting many questions regarding marble, also the dragon scaling will be cool to watch in the F1.
I did a spawn similar to this and it was very cool..so stay tuned!!

Here is the male..

She looks better standing still which was NOT happening!! Pretty feisty for just coming out of the spawn tank a day or 3 ago!

Also notice the caudal, see the branching? The rays go into 4, this means he is a HMPK..if there were only 2 rays, he would be a traditional Plakat.

Id call him a "transitional" pk since his caudal is too round for hmpk but too much branching for trad. Kind of like the transition between trad to hmpk.
Always wondered how a dragon x normal would look like in F1 so you need to keep us updated

Like I said, this is an experiment to show heredity, I know people who want to buy the fry sight unseen..they will still be great.
Look closer at his face tri..

Lol I dont even know how I got the impression that he wasnt a dragon... I guess I just read dragon scaling in F1 and my mind somehow forgot the title and told me you were doing a dragon x normal instead...

But if you do a dragon x normal iridescent let me know. Im considering doing one in the future and am pretty keen to see how its inherited in F1. Especially the marble dragons
