Re: Holtville locality Cal king

I always thought a solid black king was the most beautiful thing. But that subtle gild, damn elegant. Ah, I just looked closer and the hint of platinum - Exquisite. :D Thanks, Kelly. I really like her too. Most of my adults turn brown. Thanks. It's really nice to see the incidence of locality breed...

Great post, but you shouldn't attempt to rename Cal kings without consulting Brian Hubbs him self. lol jk I think that is what he calls the golden black belly morph. They look in between a normal banded and a Delta morph.
