    super hypo is carrying a"double dose"of hypomelanism. they can be hard to tell apart from normal hypos. usually the colors are about the same, that all depends on quality of the hypo bred. super hypos will be cleaner, reduced pattern, and wil be brighter in color than the litter mates. like I said before, its quality based so a selectively bred hypo could be better colored than a super from lower quality hypos. the only way to be 100% certain is to breed them to a normal or something that isn't hypo. they will give the hypo trait to all the babies.

    So by brighter do you mean brighter orange?
    And why is reduced pattern more expensive? I would think the opposite....

    they should have more salmon and orange color yes. the genetics are what make them more expensive not the reduced pattern. they are guaranteed to make all hypos in the litter with whatever combo you put them with.
