    It does seem that the male is a sunglow and the female is a super hypo tangerine. Unless the female has a gene for albino, you should expect non-albino geckos that have a gene for albino (which would make them "het for albino") that will have a range of orange coloring from not much to a lot, and a range of spotting from not much to a lot. The ones that hatch with slightly lighter black bands are more likely to lose all their spots.

    The female looks to just be a super hypo, unless she's het for albino you won't see any albinos like someone said but hypo gene is line bred so you're very likely to get a bunch of hypos. The female does look a little small though for breeding(could be the pic) generally you want them to be 50g otherwise you run into issues such as egg binding. Give her lots of extra calcium and vitamins to help avoid that and she should be ok. I'd try and get her to eat as much as possible to because females will drop a lot of weight unless you bulk em up first, even then really stubborn females will lose a ton of weight. Anywho, good luck!

    Edit:sorry I tried to fix some typos so I actually made sense. I wrote this super early in the morning and had asleep 0.0

    No worries! I believe she was already gravid when I got the pair. She just laid last night and I had been feeding her gut loaded dubia and she actually retained her weight really well! Thank you all for all of your help. I am very excited to be hatching out my first leo babies in a couple of months!! Thank you all for the advice and help with figuring out what morphs I have!!! This forum is very helpful and everyone is very nice!! Thank you again so much!

    Yea, he some sort of sunglow, although I'd be careful breeding him or try to find out what kind of albino it is(bell vs tremper) if you sell em without knowing you could really mess up someones breeding project(this happened to me so I had to stop that whole line of projects T-T) given that a bell albino + tremper = normal and there's no way to figure out the genetics once they've been combined. see if you can contact the person you got em from to find out which albino it is, they should know The female if def a super hypo, although if you're gonna breed I'd trade her out for another sunglow with the same albino strain, it'll safe you a couple years in your project if you want sunglows

    I actually just purchased a female tremper sunglow to pair him with. She has a couple of more months before she is good and ready to breed but they are going to make dome very pretty babies! I am pretty sure he is a tremper as well! Thanks for the advice! I have def done some research over the albino strains and its a big no no to cross the strains. Unfortunately, I knew more about leos than the people I got the pair from. So hopefully all of my research has been paying off!

    Awesome! I always just like to throw the info out there just in case it's kinda sad how doing a lot of research can put you ahead of some already well established breeders.

    I had a similar run in with a larger breeder the next state over that I got my mack snow from, came to find out from some breeding that he was het bell and they never told me, they only said straight mack, so I had to drop my patternless super snow tremper project because I was gonna use my mack. I went to they're facility a couple months later and come to found out as he's showing me babies they're unlabeled. Him and his employees ent back and forth "oh I think this was the father, oh no it was this one". I was pretty horrified and never bought from him again. Now I also keep really good notes on my guys as well >< I keep notes as if I'm selling them to breeders just in case cuz ya never know. But yea research, good note taking and label and happy animals and you'll do great also remember a keep stress free female will produce out the nose and won't drop as much weight!

    If you notice, the dark bands on the hatchings are a lighter brown than the usual black. This is usually an indication that the spotting will disappear, so it's likely you'll have super hypo babies.
