constrictor is both the species and sub species name in this case. Much like many people classify us humans as Homo sapiens sapiens.

Re: Herp Lingo :)

Wayne, could you change "bcc- boa constrictor common" to boa constrictor constrictor. It's on the first post.

Re: Herp Lingo :)

I glanced through all pages in this thread and did not see any of these. If they have been previously posted blame it on my laziness for reposting them...

MBK - Mexican Black King (L. g. nigrita)
MSP - Milk Snake Phase (thayeri)
DOR - Dead On Road
PH - Possible Het
DH - Definite or Double Het (depending on context)
FT - Frozen Thawed
FK - Freshly Killed
Hypo-e - Hypoerythristic (Reduced red pigment)
Phenotype - Visual expression
Homozygous - Expressing a genetic trait
Multi het - Carrying multiple recessive traits

And a morph can be a naturally occurring phenotype. Especially with polymorphic species or subspecies. For example, California Kings have banded and striped morphs.
Grayband and Thayeri have many morphs that are not pigment mutations.

I know a ton of morph abbreviation but that wont help since mine are geared for bci's lol this is a good idea I get these questions alot
a genetics sticky would be awesome as well
Being a boa girl, I'm surprised this came from you :s

Re: Herp Lingo :)

Well, I had a question on a reptile term I've been seeing a lot recently and this looked like maybe the best place to put it. What is meant by the word "dinker?" Been seeing it a lot with BPs and even some gecko/lizard species. I kind of have a vague idea of what it must mean from the context of where I've seen it used but I'd like a fuller explanation and to be sure my limited understanding is correct.

Re: Herp Lingo :)

A dinker is a non morph animal that could possibly have a hidden trait.
Typically there is a spot or slight difference with pattern or pigmentation.
