The Marketed Leucistic morph
Let it be known that at the time of this writing there are no known true leucistic bearded dragons.
If you are being sold or have been sold a "true leucistic dragon" the only way to prove it would be to breed it with a hypo animal, a fake leucistic dragon will produce animals with 20 clear nails, or hypo dragons. a true leucistic dragon paired with a hypo would produce normal dragons that are het for both leucism and Hypo.
marketed leucistic dragons are actually a very lighty colored or white hypo dragon. the breeder who coined the term thought he had discovered the genetic disorder but was later proven to not be so and the name was changed to marketed leucistic.
for info on how this gene works see the hypo page.
