 Question on morphing/genetics

Morphs are just animals that are changed genetically somehow, a genetic fluke which then turns out itself able to be reproduced genetically, in some cases not all I should say, most of the morphs out there came about from wild caught animals that just looked different than the rest, it just takes time to see if they will become something new genetically or not and it was just some sort of fluke.
