Bullet; White In your ketucari's genotype, spaulder is denoted by the letters "nSpl" (heterozygous) or "SplSpl" (homozygous).
Bullet; White In its heterozygous form, spaulder has a pass rate of 60%. Homozygous spaulder has a 85% pass rate.


Spaulder must be a darker color of your chosen base, with a minor deviation in hue. It can also be a fully desaturated color of the base, as long as it is darker.

These colors would be acceptable for this base color. They are either a darker version of the base, or a darker and desaturated version of the base. The last color on the right shows a minor deviation in hue, and is slightly more yellow than the base itself. Notice that this small change is not overbearing.
