I'm not sure where I stand. I wish I knew some more about genetics. You reffered to dogs having genetic health problems. I was wondering how do dog genetics compare to reptiles? It maybe a dumb question just curious.
I think the reason most morphs dont last a heart beat in the wild is one, they are mostly recessive traits so your chances of coming across one are very low. Two, morphs are different colors or patterns and therefore are not camouflaged like they have evolved to be. Albinoism is one of the more common(I think anyway). It would be much easier to spot a bright orange/yellow/white snake than a drab brown yellow orange snake. Then take anery corns which is a morph that are not bright but darker colored, they appear in the wild naturally so I dont think they are genetically weak in the slightest.
It's not that I'm lazy; it's that I just don't care.
