GENE TALK

Animal Scene - - SCALY SPECIAL -

Fire and Ivory Burmese pythons carry co-dom­i­nant genes. But what does this mean?

The Fire or Ivory gene is a dom­i­nant gene that ex­presses it­self in one way if the snake pos­sesses one copy (in this case, it results in a Fire Burmese python) and an­other way if the snake has a matched pair (a pure white Ivory Burmese python).
