"Squiggles: Excerpts from Nleimen's Journal"1509.05.13
"Genetics for Novices" is an incredible class. I am learning so much! Sad to say, I doubt I'll ever breed a black Squiggle Mouse. My textbook says that different colors can behave quite differently, and that one tends to blot out a lot of other genes. However, the different shades of brown blend well with each other and with some other traits. So there are chocolate mice on the dark end, fawn in the middle, then various shades of tan, caramel, golden, and cream on the light end. Those all have "and white" versions too. I haven't managed to breed a fawn-and-white Squiggle yet, but I have some new ideas to try.
