    Default OK, How about these two?

    What I know: Male, Eclipse, Adult, Weight 74g, Age Unknown.



    From what I've read, I think he's just a normal ol' Eclipse, prob has some tremper in there an what not.. What do you guys think? I did see a Ghost morph last night that looked nearly identical to him though..


    Ok now this one,

    What I know: Female Hypo, Adult, Weight 55g, Age Unknown



    Its pretty obvious shes a tangerine hypo, but after reading some of Aliza's stuff I'm wondering if she doesn't have some albino in her, she def has the "albino" eyes.

    Both were purchased at the January 2019 PNW reptile show from LLL and all their containers said was male eclipse and female hypo.

    I think the eclipse is also a stripe. Since albino is a recessive gene, if a gecko doesn't look albino (i.e. no black coloring), it either has a gene that you wouldn't see (and wouldn't know about unless you bred it to an albino and got albinos) or it has no albino genes. So, there's no possibility of knowing that a gecko has "some albino in it" if it doesn't look albino. Make sense?

    Fair enough She does seem to have the light colored eyes with red veins, not sure that really matters but yeah fun stuff!

    OO what makes you think the eclipse might be some sorta stripe?

    Most geckos with patterns hatch with side-to-side body bands and tail bands. Some geckos have broken body bands, meaning that they aren't solid side-to-side. Sometimes they hatch with bands that are broken up the middle, but connected to the bands in front and behind. Then they have what looks like bands running from shoulder to vent instead of side-to-side. As the gecko matures and the bands break up into spots, you can still see the original pattern. If you look at your tangerine gecko, you can see that the remaining spots show up in bands. The eclipse gecko has spots that seem to run shoulder to vent and also along the length (instead of the width) of the tail, which is why I suspect it's a stripe.
