*smacks forehead* I am such a dork *LOL* I was misunderstanding what the phenotype was . . . I thought the recessive amel alleles said to ADD red, but they are actually REMOVE black.

a+/a amel = normal/remove black

a+a+ = normal, normal (wild-type)
a+a = normal, remove black but because a+ is dom, snake looks normal
aa = remove black, removes black so only red is left

same with anery (n+/n) only says to remove red

so,
n+naa = says normal (don't remove any red) but aa says to remove the black, so you end up with amel (aa) het anery (n+n)

Did I get it right?

Thank you I really appreciate you taking the time to clarify the genetics to me.
