    Short Body Red Texas Nuchal Hump?

    I like short body RT but I don't like how their head slopes down like this one Is it possible for me to get my male and female RT to have Nuchal Humps so they don't look like that? And would it be possible for them to have Nuchal Humps without grooming? I'm hoping to get them to look like this.

    Any predictions on this pair?

    I believe the male to be a King Kamfa and the female a Kamalau both showing excellent traits. From what I can tell both are 100% red, worm pearl crossing the forehead and neck, stubby face, uniformed mouths and extremely Koky. I'll probably share the fry with the community, if anyone has any...
