    I am looking at starting to breed leopard geckos this year, I currently have two geckos that I am looking to pair :

    Male : Mack Snow Eclipse 100% Het Tremper ( Hatch Date 10/06/2018 )

    Female : w/y Mack Snow Raptor (Hatch Date 26/06/2018 )

    Just wondering if anyone could tell me what these two would produce?

    Your Mack snow eclipse het tremper has the following genes:
    Mack snow (co-dominant - one gene will produce mack snow, 2 genes will produce super snow)
    eclipse (recessive - you need 2 genes to produce visible eclipse)
    tremper albino (recessive - you need 2 genes to produce visible tremper albino)

    Your w/y Mack snow raptor has the following genes:
    w/y (dominant - 1 gene will produce visible w/y)
    Mack snow (co-dominant - one gene will produce mack snow, 2 genes will produce super snow)
    eclipse (recessive - you need 2 genes to produce visible eclipse)
    tremper albino (recessive - you need 2 genes to produce visible tremper albino)
    stripe - line bred; some of your offspring will show striping

    Now you should be able to put together all the combinations. For example, if your offspring gets a Tremper gene from each parent and a Mack snow gene from each parent, you will have super snow trempers.

    There are a lot of traits, which makes it a bit tedious to figure it out and I'm not going to do it. If this is something you can't figure out, please learn more before you breed. Here are some articles that may help:
