    Talking White out vs Oreo


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi. Can anyone tell me what's the difference between a white out and oreo? Because when I Google them, they look so similar. I plan on getting one.

    My understanding is that though they are similar in their black and white look, the white outs are more jungly looking while the oreos are black/brown and white banded. If you plan to breed, the white out is considered to be codominant and the oreo is recessive.

    Thanks for answering. Someone is selling the stripped banded white and black one, I actually just paid for it and waiting for shipment. I don't plan to breed. Do you know if their colors change in their adult form like how a baby banded leopard gecko loses all the bands when it matures?

    Again, I don't know for sure. I've produced whiteouts and did find that the initial banding broke up as it does with leopard geckos, but not to the same extent. My sense is the banding stays more separated with the oreos.

    Which means for an AFT Oreo, the bands stay more or less the same when in adult form?

    That's what I think, though I'm far from an expert.
