Lesser Platinum

Lesser platinums were proven co-dominant in 2001 by Ralph Davis. The superform of this mutation is a blue eyed leucistic. The first lessers were produced from a platinum male from Africa (known as platty daddy) and a wildtype female.

The only way to produce a platinum, as far as we currently understand, is to breed a lesser platinum to a wildtype daughter of a platinum. I believe further generations of lessers and wildtypes donít carry the hidden gene needed to produce a platinum.

Some interesting designer mutations have been produced with the lesser platinum such as the lesser bee (lesser X spider) and the kingpin (lesser x pinstripe). We hope to produce both in the 2009/1010 season.
