Mere curiosity...

To all you pros: I have a a white and red dragon PK male and a red VT female. I wonder (if I were to breed them) what would the offspring look like? I dont plan on breeding them but lately I have been wondering so much over what their fry would look like. Can anyone just say so I can lay my mind to rest? lol... As in, what tail types will come out? what colors can I expect? dragons? etc...

Male:


Female:

Theoretically speaking, you should get VT, some PK and some "in between" (sort of round tail) - rather short VT/RT.

- you should get 50% regular and 50% dragon.... but this isn't always true - you may not get any true dragons (scales not as thick as daddy).
- Since both carry red genes, you will get many reds. Some like the female, while others are red with irid on the body.
- You may get some copper with red fins because as far as I know, many dragons (if not all) carry copper genes.
