I dunno about you, but this raises a couple of questions about genetics and the color of the merpostman’s hair.
oh thank god I wasn’t the only one who noticed
co-dominant alleles + Red hair as a mutation rather than an allele!!!
like if Athena carries genes for Blonde hair but her Red hair could be the result of a rare mutation, and Triton had Brown hair in the past if i recall correctly so he could be carrying Brown hair and Black hair alleles. As a result, their children all have the proper genes for their parent’s hair color, but Ariel got the mutation!
Fuck I was andrina when we did Little Mermaid that bitch looks dumb as hell why am I the derpy one
