I've been working with "pictus" geckos for many years, and have seen and kept almost all of the known color phases. I have not, however, seen anything like THIS before. What do you folks think it is? I hope it feeds, grows, and is a male. :lol:

Could it be a snow? I know this phase is already around but only a handful of breeders have them. Well done either way.

Bad news for everyone. The animal refused to eat. He lived a very comfortable lifestyle for 3 weeks and then unfortunately passed away. I hatched over 50 pictus from that colony this year and that was the only one that hatched out with that white coloration. It was definitely NOT one of the snows that hatches brown and turns white, it hatched out all white, but that could have something to do with the fact that it didn't want to eat. Hopefully myself or someone else out there will be able to hatch another one like it. In the meantime, I will cross my fingers for next year. :)

Thanks for the well wishes,

Andy

Sorry to hear it past. That was one strang looking pictus. Maybe you can produce another next season.
