Translucents:  There is some incorrect information being circulated by others that are inexperienced and were not breeding dragons at the time that the translucents popped out.  Information that is incorrect on what a translucent is.   A translucent is not determined by the color of his iris (the color around the pupil). This brown/normal iris does not make him a "partial translucent"  a partial translucent is a dragon that has translucent patches on his skin along with regular skin or a dragon that was normal but is changing to a translucent.  A translucent is determined on the appearance of his skin and nothing else.....a translucent has translucent skin especially noted on his belly.  Translucents can and do have brown/normal iris (that sometimes and usually changes to very dark brown(black)) or they can have very dark brown (appears black) iris.  A brown/normal iris does not diminish the quality or genetic capability for transferance of this gene to progeny in any way.  Some of my translucents are born with brown/normal iris and they tend to change to very dark brown (black) as they mature..some may not.  If you are concerned with the color of a translucent dragon's iris that happens to be for sale please ask me and I will look at it and tell you what color it is.

Citrus Tiger Background


I am the originator of the citrus tiger dragon, I have read information on other websites  with lineage information and that information is incorrect.  I started working on the "blue barred dragons"  tiger gene in 1997 and while we had  visual "tiger" barred dragons  before that I had been working on,  none passed this gene to all his progeny or even a few of his progeny with regularity.  Even when breeding two visual tiger barred animals together sometimes less than half the clutch would show this patterning and those babies kept back and bred to produce this trait were similarly unsuccessful.   One particular dragon that came from my dad's stock which was an orange and blue dragon with a blue belly and light greenish iris named "KayCee" he had a "digit" at the end of his tail (not a tail nip probably part of evolution my vet said) and he was bred to several females and 100% of the progeny from him had extreme tiger patterning and about 30% have that digit in the tail  These offspring were bred over the years to Ghosts, Citrus, Red, etc with the same result.  All offspring had barring.  The progeny with the minimal barring when bred to a non tiger produced the same result as an extreme tiger..all offspring had barring..some minimal some heavy.  Tigers can show in any form: Translucent, Fire Tiger, Rainbow Tiger, Citrus Tiger, Tangerine Tiger, Ghost Tiger, etc.   While we have animals here that have tiger bars some are not a genetic tiger and will not reproduce this pattern it is a visual trait, these are not classified as tigers here and may be advertised as a dragon with blue barring, they will not be called Tigers.  If the dragon has come from the tiger lineage then it will be labeled as a tiger.  Citrus Tigers resulted from KayCee progeny bred to Apollo a pure Citrus dragon that produced incredible red offspring even when bred to a Citrus (founder of the Bricky  Red and Red Citrus lines) line dragons and the yellow and blues were pulled and bred to the patternless citrus lines.  Draggintails Citrus Tigers are homozygous and can be seen all over the world, I began exporting them as soon as the gene was established and to this day to France, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, Belgium, Austria, Japan, Thailand, Scotland, England and Ireland and from there they have spread all over the globe, you can spot them in every colony as they are one of the most recognizable morphs of bearded dragons on the planet and  originated here at Draggintails. The most famous of the Citrus Tigers was a female named Shamy..not the most neon yellow of my dragons, however, she produced the most electrifying tigers ever and clients from Europe would fly here for Shamy parties to hand pick her babies every year when she produced her clutches. She has passed on now, but her progeny are still here with me.

Hypo Tang Background

 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 you can see hypotang extreme paradox in many, many colonies all over the world. 

Red Citrus Background

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.
