    Question What morph is my baby gecko?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    any idea what morph my baby gecko is? I know his stripes will probably become dots when he is older but itís still intriguing. 892B6D72-1FEA-4833-8B0C-92F9A040EF1D.jpg42843D04-9886-455A-A699-A3704EE83F65.jpg


    Update!: I think he might be hyper melanistic, can anyone confirm?

    The picture is a bit hard to make out, but, since it seems to be black and white, it's probably a Mack Snow. The body bands (but not the tail bands) are broken, so it can be called "aberrant". It looks hypermenalistic right now, but I've had really dark hatchlings that got a lot lighter eventually, so you'll have to see. Also, most Mack snows yellow up, so be prepared for that.

    updated photos in (hopefully) better lighting. He has almost doubled in size and has gained some weight!! I still don’t know his age, though. his patterns have started to lighten, do you think they are going to yellow?

    He's looking good. As far as whether he'll turn yellow, time will tell!

    4A956096-6AE1-4878-8FA9-6BF46B5A2502.jpg DADC7888-A4F4-46FC-8FF6-83B1C036D253.jpgB1836C73-E25D-48EC-89AF-E17D6463D373.jpg0E56113A-1FBD-4885-BAAF-17B040503BEB.jpg quick update!! These are hard to make out because he keeps moving but he is yellowing up. I wonder if its just around his bands or if he will turn into a normal. Still cute and super friendly, never bitten or hissed either



    Edit: forgot to mention this weird overly saturated yellow dot by his tail. It’s super cool !

    Even if he gets all yellow he'll still be a Mack snow. The yellow dot may be something called a paradox (meaning it's unusual) spot.
