    Cool What Morph is Mochi?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello all,
    This is my first post. And Ive been anonymously "stalking" this website for about a year now for information and admiring peoples morphs. I finally decided to make an account and get my biggest question answered.
    Mochi is a little over a year and my baby that I love so much. I want to breed her soon but I know you shouldnt ever cross certain morphs due to issues.

    So the big question: what morph(s) is she?

    When I adopted her, I was told she was an Aberrant which I learned is present in Mack Snows and Normals. She has some features of both (to me and some others) as well as some other morphs. She also has (im not sure if you can see it in the picture) almost Sea Green eyes.

    Thank you all!
    Happy Herping!20190120_162617.jpg20180915_231725.jpg

    "Aberrent" just means that either the body bands or the tail bands are broken, but not both. It can occur with any morph that has the hatchling start out with bands. I can't really tell anything about the gecko without seeing a photo from above. So far it does look like a wild type.

    Is this better?

    My lighting is horrible but the colors that she has are: very pastel yellow, white, and black (that looks more dark brown/red), and a rough orange (again thats pastel).

    I see what you mean, and I looked up the meaning as well (not saying I dont believe you but more pictures for reference). She has broken banding, that I wouldnt even call banding, on her tail and body.

    I really appreciate your help!
    Thanks!

    If you look closely at the tail, you can see that originally she had black bands which have broken up into spots. The spots cluster in horizontal bands. On her body, though, it looks as if she originally had black stripes that ran from shoulder to tail. These shoulder to tail stripes are the result of broken horizontal bands, so they end up looking longitudinal instead of side to side. That's why she was called aberrant because the original body bands were "broken" into stripes and the tail bands remained as bands. She's pretty yellow, so I don't think she's a Mack snow, but she could have hatched black and white and then yellowed up.
