It’s only year two in our TUG Snow X Halloween Mask R2 Bold project and we are already seeing some fun results.
With the Halloween Mask, we expect to see erratic bold head markings that this trait is known for. With the TUG Snow, we are expecting to have a reduction in yellow pigmentation and even a reduction in spotting. The R2 Bold stripe trait produces a nice solid black stripe down the body rather than the normal banded phase.
We crossed our pure TUG Snow female with a 50 to 75% HM male.

The results were this guy:
Next we crossed that male with a pure HM female.
And here are a few of this year's results (More pictures are available on our Facebook page.):
You can see how fun this project is. We are certainly looking forward to the next few years.
Thanks for looking!
