Dibujando Monitos

Currently an art student in California, but was born and raised in México. Title is Spanish for "drawing cartoons", which is pretty much all I do. Besides art, I like animals, mythology, and good stories. I'm also a twin.
I volunteer as a docent at the local zoo.

That’s right! Science those anons!

((but! How would you explain the lack of 100% chance on breeding 2 shinies to get another shiny? ;3 ))

Even if the two parents exhibit the shiny morph, they both carry the dominant phenotype for the typical coloration, and the chances are still the same as if the parents were normal.

Being shiny is a somatic mutation, most likely of a pigment-precursor allele, and thus cannot be passed down to the next generation. Much like two-toned apples.

    Yay, genetics! A regular Umbreon (yellow rings) and a shiny Umbreon (blue rings) mating doesn’t produce a green-ringed...
