Phantom-Glow Albino Red Eared Slider : Trachemys scripta elegans
A completely new morph! Phantom-Glow Albinos are not related to Snows, Leubinos, Caramels or Charcoals - but imagine what you could make by putting all their genes together ! The Phantom's eyes have the blue iris like a Caramel, but with a very large glowing red pupil - more like a snow. When their eyes are closed, you can clearly see both pupil & iris, right through their eyelids - almost as if their eyes were still open. Their head, limbs and skin is all very transparent & under a soft 40 watt light their soft parts actually glow (see the top photo). When they first hatch, their shells and skin are soft yellow and light pink - in a few weeks fully defined patterns develop and some even have traces of blue pigment appear on their carapaces & plastrons (Paradox) suggesting even more possibilites on their genetic tool belts.
Their "all from the eye" head striping makes you think of many other species - and yet these are 100% Red Ear all the way...
In a picture - or in your hand it's clear that this new RES morph is like nothing else - but their greatest appeal is the potential morphs Phantoms could create with Charcoals, Leubinos, Caramels and Snows - (think ball pythons)...
When asked what to call this new morph - one top breeder simply said with an exasperated sigh: " POSSESSED !?! " Phantom-glows do look supernatural - and they just might hold the keys to the future of RES breeding . . .
