    In the case of this gecko "50% Radar" really means that there is a 50% chance she has a gene for eclipse. It would definitely be a good idea to breed it to an eclipse to find out if it's truly an eclipse (if it doesn't produce any eclipse offspring it's not an eclipse and vice versa). You should also probably breed it to a Bell or het Bell to get some (or all) Bell albinos. If you can find a Mack snow Bell Eclipse then you can get all the combinations of Mack snow (though not super snow), bell and eclipse (if yours turns out to be an eclipse).

    So if I breed her with an Eclipse male, what will be the outcome?
    You see, I probably won't sell the babies, so I don't really care about the price I can sell them for. I just don't wanna get normals. Some nicely colored babies would be cool though.

    If you breed her to an eclipse male you will get some eclipse offspring if she is truly an eclipse. I notice that her tail is jungly and her rearmost body band is broken so you may get some stripes. You will not get any albinos unless the eclipse male is het for Bell. So at least some of your offspring will look like normals.

    There are eclipses with stripes? I thought all of them were just dotted. And let's say I bought male Blizzard (I really like those). What would be the outcome of those two?

    This is her newest photo. (Yeah, she got a bit fat, we ran out of roaches, so we had to improvise with mealworms.) I think she might be a bit too young to breed. She will be 1yo in November, but she was 77g about two months ago.

    "stripe" refers to the hatchling pattern, which will consist of, in the case of an albino, yellow body with solid beige bands or large spots. Sometimes the original solid stripe fades out to where it's dots instead of a solid line. It's still a stripe, though. Breeding season isn't really till next spring, so she'll be about 15 months before she's really going to breed, which, in my opinion, is fine. Your gecko has lots of little speckles. Sometimes that's a sign that she has a gene for blizzard but that's no guarantee. If you breed her with a male blizzard: if she does have a gene for blizzard some of them will be blizzards. If she doesn't have a gene for blizzard the babies may be speckled like she is. If the male has no gene for albino, all the offspring will be normals with a gene for albino that won't show up in the way they look.
