Peter Koch, a German breeder imported the first known Labrynths from Thailand in 1988. Bob Clark imported this pair in 1989 and produced the first captive hatched visuals later that year.
Labyrinth Burms are named after their maze like patterns. The blotches typically found on normal Burms are striped and elongated forming a very aberrant pattern. This pattern can vary from stripes laterally, to bands from the dorsal to the sides. Coloring is thane same as that found in normal Burms. In labs, the coloring and pattern can be influenced by the various hets they are carrying. Het green labs tend to have a very broken pattern with hardly any long striping at all. Het albino labs tend to have a much lighter and brighter background color.
