Breeding and Showing Guppies

Guppy Gallery - Snakeskin

The pictures shown here are guppies that carry the snakeskin genetic trait that shows a rosette pattern on the body. The snakeskin trait is generally dominant and Y-linked. Some strains are X-linked. Many strains also carry the dominant zebrinous trait (not sex linked) causing vertical bars on the peduncle area. This can mask enough of the snakeskin rosette pattern to make it less than the 60% rosette pattern required to qualify for the snakeskin class.
