Morphs

Albino

 

There are currently 3 known strains of Albino in Leopard Geckos. You should NEVER cross strains of Albino!

 

Tremper Albino

 

Tremper Albino Leopard Geckos were discovered by Ron Tremper. The best way to identify a Tremper Albino is by coloration. A Tremper albino will have a lighter color including yellows, hints of Orange and white. Another way to tell is by their light silver red veined eyes.

 

Rainwater Albino Leopard Geckos

 

Rainwater leopard geckos were discovered by Tim Rainwater. Identifying markers are a Pinkish Body color and have the darkest eyes of all three forms of Albino

 

Bell Albino Leopard Gecko

 

The Bell Albino was discovered by Mark Bell. The best way to differentiate a Bell Albino is by its eyes. The Bell Albino has light Pink Eyes.

 

R.A.P.T.O.R

 

Is an acronym for R.ed eyed A.lbino P.atternless T.remper O.R.ange

(Tremper Eclipse)

 

A.P.T.O.R

 

A.lbino P.attern T.remper O.R.ange

 

Eclipse

 

Solid Black Eyes

 

Snake Eyes

 

Is partial pigment in one or both eyes.

 

Abyssinian 

 

Does not have eye pigment

 

Marble Eye 

 

A new recessive eye mutation in leopard geckos that give the geckos eye a three dimensional look.  Initially found in the Tremper Albino Sunlow. Marble eyes should never be bred to Eclipse or Het for Eclipse

 

 

Murphy Patternless 

 

Produced by Pat Murphy in 1991, the Murphy Patternless is a Leopard Gecko which lacks all pattern. 

 

Blizzard

 

Discovered by Jay Villa in 1995 the Blizzard morph acts like a Murphys patternless. Blizzard is a simple recessive. Blizzards are patternless and range in color from purple to yellow to white.

 

 

Giant/Super Giant 

 

Discovered by Ron Tremper in 2001. The Giant and Super Giant trait is a co dominant morp There are three different forms of the trait: Normal, Giant, and Super Giant. Normals do not carry the Giant trait. Giants carry one copy of the trait and are heterozygous for Super Giant. Super Giants are homozygous for the trait.

 

 

Super Giant X Super Giant = 100% Super Giant

Super Giant X Giant = 50% Giant 50% Super Giant

Super Giant X Normal = 100% Giant

Giant X Normal = 50% Giant 50% Normal

 

Enigma

 

An Enigma is a Leopard Gecko which is a dominant morph. There are a few common traits which all Enigmas have, their spots tend to be blotchey rather than banded. When looking at their tails, their tails are usually all white.  With age spotting turns to speckling.

NEVER Breed an Enigma to an Enigma!

 

White and Yellow (W/Y)

 

White and Yellow is a dominant morph. White and Yellow hatchlings display very similar traits to Hypos or Super Hypo hatchlings. White and Yellows currently display vary little carrot tail. As adults they look similar to the Enigmas.

 

 

Gem Snow

 

Gem Snows are one of the four different kinds of Snows. They were originally created by Jim Holler of Reptilian Gems. They hatch out displaying a white body and black bands but as they get older the bands break up. Gem Snows do not have a Super form but when bred to a Mack Snow you can produce a Super Snow.

 

TUG Snow

 

The Urban Gecko Snow was created by Craig Stewart from The Urban Gecko. TUG Snows come originated from a selectively bred Wild Caught group. Stewart believes Tug Snows are axanthic, a genetic trait where there is little to no yellow  TUG Snows are also a dominate trait. TUG Snows do not have a Super form but when bred to a Mack Snow you can prduce a Super Snow


Line Bred Snow 

 

Line Bred Snows are snows that are line bred with a focus on white and black pigment. There are 3 forms of Linebred Snows. Line Bred Snows are graded on a A-C scale.  A is a pure white and black gecko. B-C geckos display some yellow pigment. A Super form cannot be produced by breeding two line bred snows. There is a small chance however to produce a Super if bred to a Mack Snow. However Albeys line of Line bred Snows do produce Super a Super form.

 

Ghost 

 

A Dominant Trait. Needs further testing.

 

Mack Snow

 

Mack Snows were first produced by John and Amy Mack from Reptiles by Mack. Hatchlings looked like a "Snow" hatchlings rather than a normal hatchling. The next season, John and Amy bred the hatchlings and Super Snows, Mack Snows and Normals were produced.

Bandit Halloween Mask

 

Halloween Masks were first created in the late 90's by Albey Scholl of Albey's Too Cool Reptiles after working with an unusual looking leopard gecko. After years of line breeding he proving out the head pattern traits, the project was later turned over to Paul Allen of Bright Albino.

 

Hyper Xanthic

 

A project by JMG reptiles, easily distinguishable because of their extreamly bright body and high contrast body.
