Question What's the difference between these 2 VT tails?

Does anyone know the difference between these 2 VT tails?

The first looks like a combtail to me. We have a male combtail. Has the slight spikes that you see on the crowntail but flowing tail of the VT.

So I'm guessing her gene's are CTxSTorDT=CombTxVT=50/50?

If so, She's a mutt. Is her VT side still dominant over a Dragon?

Neither of them look like VTs to me.

First is a PK.

Second has too much branching to me to look like a VT.

WHAT! really? I knew something was fishy. Funny thing was they were both marked as VT's. I knew the first one was fishy but the second one caught me, thought she was a VT all along

Do you know what they are?

slight webbing dosen't mean CT nor combtail. i had multiple females with slight webbings, but combtails are more of a droopy rays and longer, CT are more long and straight. first one looks like a PK, second one looks like a VT (IMO)

TBH I think they're both traditional PKs.

they could be, until i get my question answered:
how long you had them?
if junglist had them for a short time they have a 50-50 chance on being PKs, but if junglist had them for a long time, they must be PK

Well regardless of that they have to be PK. I've worked with my share of veils and veil females have long pointed fins like their male counterparts. These have to be PKs since they are not displaying any VT tail form.
