Hmm, America is about on the other side of the world, I donīt think shipping some to Belgium is an option

Hey Jake and all :)

I just read through this post again. Just fascinating. I've been given a chimera last summer. The owner thought she was sick and I was able to tell her otherwise. Then this incredible woman just offered her to me !

I have a brother and a sister of hers (same parents but not same clutch). I will put them together as soon as the littluns are big enough. And then reproduce them, just as Jake did, to see if there is any chimeras coming out of it, again :)

Barbara

A chimera is an animal with two sets of DNA instead of one. They usually end up exhibiting different markings/colors/etc on the different sides of their body.

Why is this making me want to get an axolotl? I already have two leopard geckos and six Eastern newts. xD

I believe it to be a Chimera, something to due to an embryonic cell division anomaly as I understand -but I am no expert in genetics.
