Another topic worth learning. Thanks to a member of the other forum who helped me with the pics.:) Use the thread very well.
Albino: Lacking pigment.
Amelanistic: lacking melanin (black pigment).
Aposematic: Warning coloration.
Chromophores: Cells responsible for holding pigment.
Xanthophores: produce yellow pigment.
Erythrophores: produce red pigment.
Melanophores: produce black pigment (melanin).
Iridophores: Hold no color pigment but, hold highly reflective non-motile purine crystals that yield silver irridescent reflections.
Leucophores: Hold no color pigment. Motile purine crystals produce white pigment.
Cyanophores: produce blue pigment.
Erythristic: Predominantly red morph.
Flavistic: Sepia-toned background color.
Leucistic: lacking or mostly lacking chromatophores. Not a true albino (ie: colored eyes).
Melanistic: dark or near black (some markings can still be visible).
Piebald: Having patches of white.
Polymorphic: Having a natural variation within a single species. (eg: blue motoro ray is a polymorph of the standard non-blue motoro ray)
Tyrosinase-Negative Albinism: An albino whose cells lack tyrosinase (enzyme that synthesizes melanin) yielding a pale-white to creamy animal with pink eyes.
Tyrosinase-Positive Albinism: Synthesizes tyrosinase but, not melanin yielding a fawn or lavender (platinum) color.
Xanthic: Predominantly yellow color morph. If anything, pls let me know if there is something missing or to add.:)
