Designing: Axanthism




• Axanthism is the absence of yellow pigment. In ketucari, it results in the base and markings displaying
in shades of gray or brownish gray. 
 In your ketucari's genotype, axanthism is denoted by the letters "nAx" (heterozygous) or "AxAx" (homozygous).
• In its heterozygous form, axanthism has a pass rate of 10%. Homozygous axanthism has a 35% pass rate.


Ketucari that would have a dark coat normally should fall in the darker gray range.  Ketucari that would have lighter coats should fall in the lighter gray range. Skin color should be in the gray range as well. 

Even markings that appear in vibrant colors, such as hued points, will be altered by this mutation (also becoming gray or brownish gray).

Interaction with Other Markings

• White marks are the only markings that show normally colored in axanthic ketucari.
• Axanthism cannot be inherited along with another color mutation. When breeding two color mutated ketucari, cubs can only inherit one of the mutations.
