The Black Adder, or “BA” as it’s affectionately known, was found as a captive hatched baby in 2006. Currently, the Black Adder is classified as Dominant. We have Female Black Adders up to size, and we plan to use these in solidly determining the genetic inheritance of the Black Adder gene. The Black Adder is a colour and pattern mutation, it influences other genes immensely and We are excited to have the privilege to see what combinations really “POP” and more importantly; we’re excited to be introducing it to you! The Black Adder has some really strong characteristics, these include an almost Clown like dorsal stripe, as well as this, the BA has a unique looking side pattern. We’re sure you’ll agree, this is an interesting characteristic for a gene to express, and makes the journey to discovering this projects full potential all the more interesting, and great fun too.
