    Default Banana blizzards?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Iím wanting to breed a murphys patternless and a blizzard this year (first time breeder) to get normals het for both, then breed those for a banana blizzard. I recently picked up a male murphy at an expo and it just dawned on me that his coloring isnít the bright yellow like most murphys. Iím pretty sure itís a murphy as the lady selling them at the expo was selling only murphys. My concern is what will the eventual banana blizzard look like? Will it be dull in color like the male? Is it even worth breeding it? Iíd post a pic if I knew how, his coloring isnít completely grey but slightly yellow. The other 2 geckos they were selling (same parents) looked more like the classic yellow murphys patternless

    It's not unusual for both the blizzards and the murphy's patternless to have color variation depending on mood and temperature, so you may find that the color changes as it acclimates. Also, sometimes the look of the gecko isn't as important as the genes it carries. Especially with recessive or dominant genes (as opposed to line bred, where it seems more important to pair up good looking geckos) you can have a mediocre looking gecko that produces really nice looking offspring. I recommend you try the pairing and see what you end up with.
