Hypo vs. Het Hypo

HYPO (Hypomelanistic or hypomelanism)

Hypo bearded dragons are the offspring of two hypomelanism parents. “Hypo” means less, and melanism refers to the pigment in skin. Hypo bearded dragons have reduced melanin resulting in less brown/black coloring with 100% clear nails and a lighter appearance.

HET HYPO (Heterozygous for Hypo)

Het Hypos carry the hypo gene but do not show it. They have dark nails and darker pigment similar to normal bearded dragons; however, tend to show color better and are lighter when compared to a normal bearded dragon. Breeding a het hypo with a 100% hypo should produce in approximately 50% hypos and 50% het hypos.  I’m hoping to mate the above hypo female with the below het hypo male in late 2016 and am looking forward to the results!
