With the new breedables being released; and new auction houses popping up right and left, It is important to us that our friends don't get 'taken advantage of' by or 'confused by' people misusing breeding terms.
HERE IS A BRIEF LIST OF TERMS YOU MAY HEAR AND THERE CORRECT MEANING.
OFFSPRING/ DIRECT OFFSPRING -- OS / DOS = used specifically to denote that one or both parents have a trait or coat that is desirable. ~ This Mossm is a Treefrog os
DESCENDANT -- DEC/DESC = term used when a grandparent or great grandparent has the trait or coat. She is also a Cow Descendant
PURE = this term is used ONLY when both parents and all Grand and Great Grandparents. wear the desired trait. NOTE that "starters" cannot be used in the PURE term. so a pure DoDos, Mossms, or even Meeroo cannnot have a starter as a parent/grandparent/great grandparent.
GENERATION --GEN =on a child's tree the parents count as FIRST GENERATION, grandparents as SECOND GENERATION and so on and so forth.
NOTE --- most breedables do not consider starters to be a generation.
Thank you for your time I hope this helps you in your breeding dears :)
