I started keeping and breeding Knob-tail Geckos back in the early '90's. Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on how you look at it, the available gene pool was extremely limited with a few species. I found these geckos easy to care for and easy to breed. When a man in California hatched an albino from the line we were both keeping, I concentrated on breeding brother to sister and father to daughter, etc. :blushing:

My breeding colony of Nephrurus levis pilbarensis started to produce some unusual specimens. Patternless, Amelanistic (Albino), Hypomelanistic, and patternless albinos were all part of the norm.

I used my unrelated animals to breed to the albinos to produce partially unrelated hets. Some of the first albinos were rather weak, some were very strong. For the most part, there were few problems.

Here is a good example of the variation within this bloodline. I took these photos about a dozen years ago. Unfortunately, the quality is not as good as most photos seen here on this forum. Hopefully, the variation here will make up for that. Sorry for you on dial up. :yawn:

Big Daddy,

I still have all those pics as glossy photos you sent me way back when. The subject of much longing and salivation!
