    Very Very Nice Kings.
    I assume that the two Applegate Specials will be bred to each other somewhere down the line.

    Thank you.....
    Yes, the het male and visual female Applegate Specials will be paired up next year.

    I also have a pair of high white Baubel line pyros that will be paired up as well as my definite het Sentz hypo/possible het hypoerythristic pair.

    Then the high blacks and the het amel the following year will be thrown into the mix.

    The founder scientists that named these animals saw their colors a little different.
    Rather than seeing the black crossovers they saw the little red flames on their sides and named them pyromelana.
    Pyro meaning flames and melana meaning blood red.
    Blood flames.....

    Oh, I see what you mean, the red does look like flames! Too cool, Thanks for that explanation :)
