Look Leucistic. Same sort of thing as the Xanthic Jags. The one gene for the dark color is absent or not working quite right so that color get replaced with a yellow. AT least in Leopard geckos, it uped their price. The more yellow the more it was worth.

Not quite the same thing and not leucistic.
The same sort of thing as xanthic jags in cons would be xanthic cons (aka pink cons).
Gold jags are different than xanthic jags and result in a high yellow coloration more along the lines of what you're seeing in the con but I've seen cons with the same coloration and it seems more mood based than genetics.

My cons went from pale grey to almost solid black depending on mood and spawned 25% pink fry! What a great surprise that was, I love genetics :D Maybe those cons had some nano ancestry down the line? I know they will breed with pretty much any other CA out there, Homicidal AND Sex Addicts...guess thats why they call em Convicts :lol:

Hmm, sometimes the black lines on my convict turn slightly green.
