It's good to see the negative effects of what some breeders do to their animals. I've seen lots of documentation on bad alleles that pair with albino genes as well. Makes you wonder what other negative effects go along with say clown or spider morphs, or caramel albino, cuase in some morphs you're talking about mixing 2 genes that are known to have bad side effects, and how this happens to so many animals for profit. Almost like animal abuse isn't it?
And to think we pay extra for these defective genes.
