    Pewter Harlequin??

    Hi, A few years ago I acquired a "possible Harlequin" from Outback Reptiles. She Fed great and was bred to a Pewter last season. She threw 5 eggs, 1 went bad. we ended up with 1.2 pewters, and .1 cinny. I'd really appreciate any of your opinions on one of the pewters. I don't know if she is a ''harlequin Pewter'' but she does look different and more reduced than the other siblings. Here is a pic of the mom, and a few of the nice pewters she produced. These are cell phone pics, please excuse the poor quality.

    reduced pewter, no flash, pic is a little orange from the lighting.

    Clutch shot!

    the reduced pewter next to her 'normal' pewter sister.

    One last shot of ''Zinc".
    I really appreciate any thoughts. We were very happy with the outcome, as this is our first clutch ever. Thank you.

    from what I understand Harlequins are a recessive gene, so unless the pewter male is a het these wouldn't be harlequins

    According to WOB it says it's dominant. Is there more than one harlequin?

    Thanks for the comments! I heard this over on NERDs facebook.
    ''New England Reptile: Harlequin is either Co Dom or Dom...I bet it is Co Dom all the way!''

    I am NOT saying she is a 'harlequin' she is just a striped backed import. More breeding will be done. The pewter male she produced is getting bred back to her next year.
