      This make way more sense than when you tried to explain in ZD why my Golden Jaguars could only have Golden cubs. :D

      Why is this any different to, say, leopards, or any other Punnett square for that matter?

      Or was this just to demonstrate on an example?

      @amur leopard Melanism in leopards in caused by a recessive allele (not a dominant allele as in this example); but yeah, we had some Jaguar in ZD and I wanted to explain melanism inheritance to people. We used the same chart in a fictional scenario in Mesozoic Zoo 2 involving Velociraptor, with cryptic and melanistic colour variants (cryptic illustrated by golden in this punnet square).
      Tafin and amur leopard like this.
