I think you were trying to say "Hypo", the ad didnt work for me by the way. Alot of people get an especially light colored animal, such as a sav, or a redtail, and try to make some extra cash by passing it off as a hypo, when itís actually just a very pretty, normal animal.

 Hyomelanistic

hypo means lacking and melanin is the dark pigments on an animal. So a hypomelanistic bosc monitor is simply one that is lacking the dark pigments that are normally present.

However it would have to be bred for it to prove out. Seeing as this ad is for a baby then nothing is proven other then visually it has a lighter pigment then some. As for price anyone can ask what they want to ask for their animals it doesnt mean they will get it, but they can ask.

Does it produce orange sided light colored babies? Have they stopped importing them by the hundreds for pennies on the dollar? Is there a mad rush of responsable people willing to purchase true captive produced babies over the imports??

If the answer is yes to the above then ya you may find some takers. But until then feel free to ask.
