Both mom and pop look to be some kind of diluted yellow or red, possibly brindled in both cases. If they both carry dilution factors that would account for the strange shimmering creature featured in your first couple of pictures. Lovely!

*shrug* Mousie genetics (genetics in general) are still in the process of being revealed. I learn something new almost every day if I go looking for more information. Depending on where you live, there are three different types of brindling that I know of, and multiple paths for dilution for any color. What kind of brindling do you have in your line?

I don't know if you have noticed, but the range of described traits in mousies are constantly being expanded as more analysis and experimentation takes place. Science thunders on at breakneck speed, and sometimes we need to look behind us to see what we've missed.

a^m is another radiation derived form of brindling and can do lots of other things ranging from mimicking a^e/a^e and many other things depending on what else is in the A locus with it. Yes, Finnmouse rides again! She's taken time once again to add stuff and I just found out some of this stuff. I never looked at the details of this, as I'm really not trying to breed brindles anymore. This probably isn't involved in any way with what you are doing, podcreature. It's nearly impossible to tell, though, where and when these radiation induced mutants were gotten out of the labs.

Oh, yes, I do really love Pinky and the Brain. "They're laboratory mice; their genes have been spliced. They're Pinky, they're Pinky , they're Pinky and the Brain."
