The tangs are a result of crossing my Dad's Cletus (red) and a yellow/green female. The progeny were an electrifying, safety cone orange..we didn't know what to think. Now, at this time there were really no hypomelanistics to speak of and these were especially clean and orange. We then crossed these out to the black nailed ghosts (called ghosts back then but are simply snows or a light colored normal). This pairing resulted in some of the most prolific dragons we have ever had. The nicest development of this bloodline was later on when we had hypo citrus from Goldfinger and crossed the tangs into this hypo citrus..the progeny were electric tangerine and all het hypo, they took off from there. One of the most famous of the hypotangs was "Juilo" a 23" 700g bright hypotang beast that bred well into his 7th year...he was a breeding machine. The hypotang is the only male line I know of on the planet that will breed more than 5 females a year and keep going into middle age, not to mention being that big a male line ...a fantastic, prolific line of dragons and we have direct Julio bloodlined animals in the colony today. This line has produced with regularity "smooth" scaled dragons although they have no leatherback in the bloodline and large number of paradox dragons. I sold many hundreds before I knew that this line was evolving...now you can see hypotang extreme paradox in many, many colonies all over the world.
Red Citrus is not a Red crossed to a citrus. The story is very old actually. Apollo one of our bright citrus males was bred to numerous yellow females and the result was 100% red dragons with high yellow undertones. This would be fine if Apollo was actually a red dragon that hatched out yellow, however, he was one of our line bred Citrus dragons. We could not market these dragons as Citrus even though they were pure Citrus bearded dragons. They certainly were not Crimson or Bloods either. So we had to ID the progeny in a way we would understand what would happen if we outcrossed them. The ID on all the cages for these babies was: CRCT...other wise known as Crazy Red Citrus Turkeys. You can spot one of these anywhere! I have seen people buy them and then rename them with their own names, market them in other countries where those people didn't know what they actually had genetically...however..all of them have a neon yellow undertone with cherry red orange stamped on top. This line crosses in to the tangs beautifully and it is a favorite of mine. Everyone that has a Red Citrus say they are pretty much one person dragons...sweet but prefer their handler to care for them and they snub other people.
