Hi all-
thought I'd post some pics of retics that are very different looking from eachother just to demonstrate that not all retics are alike!

zig-zag banded, high contrast

banded retic with red blotches/reddish background

unusual/abberant retic with red and orange

There are also retics like those pictured in the "Rhacodactylus" book by Fast, DeVosjoli, and Repashy that have an over-all reticulation without any banding or other markings that stand out from the over-all pattern....

Thanks!

Nice auriculatus, I especially like the last one pictured in the first post! Have you been able to pair up animals with similar patterns in order to determine if the variations can be passed on from generation to generation?

This year and next year I will be exploring the heritability of certain variations.....stay tuned!
