Default wild type GFP vs. wild type non GFP

I currently have both GFP and non GFP in wild type and the difference is amazing. The GFP is much better looking. What do you think?

Thats an interesting comparison. You can really see the greenish hue. it is much more obvious than i expected.

I thought GFP in wildtypes would be less visible to the naked eye but that's really noticeable. I suppose with the different wildtype variations though, particularly the darker or greener ones, it would be harder to notice in daylight.

They look good. Their is a lot of variation in wild types. Gfp is easy to see if you look at the eyes in wild types. In lighter colored ones it's evident when looking from the top under normal light. In dark wild types it isn't as evident. They all show real easy in their bellies and eyes under a black light.

Sorry but what does GFP stand for? And what is the difference in the eyes of these 2 wildtypes? Thanks

I think it means 'Green Fluorescent Protein'

I think they're both beautiful. The green looks great, but the non GFP is equally gorgeous. But I'm a sucker for any of the wild looking pets. The wild colour in rats is Agouti, and it's gorgeous.

It will be interesting to see if they get any "darker" as they get older. Mine used to look just a little darker than that, now they look almost black without a light on the tank.
