    Question What size determines a "Giant" and is my ID assumption correct?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi,
    I have "Crush" here. She started out as a juvenile basically with no markings. My daughter picked her up from PetSmart a little more than a year ago. She now weighs in at about 70-71grams. I'm thinking she might be a "Mack Snow Rainwater Albino". Can anybody shed any light on whether or not I'm even close and if it's possible she might be of the "Giant" variety? Once I'm no longer a "newbie" at caring for my leo, I might consider trying my hand at breeding.

    Nice looking gecko. She's definitely an albino. I don't think there's any reliable way to tell a Tremper albino from a Rainwater. Based on the first picture, she's pretty yellow, so unless you saw her as a hatchling and she was white and beige, there's no way to know whether or not she's a Mack snow (she looks whiter in one of the other pictures, but I think it's kind of overexposed). Giants are usually more than 115 grams and longer than 10 inches. You really need to know that she comes from giant genetic lines. One of my geckos, who's now 15, was about 9" long and weighted 116 grams in his prime. He is not a giant. I'm glad you have another gecko to care for.

    Thank you so very very much for your response. If memory serves me, and I could be incorrect, I will have to double-check with my daughter, she was pretty much all but void of color and pretty tiny when they got her. They messed up and didn't even charge them for her, if that says anything about the local PetSmart!!!

    I was just about to ask the same thing about my guy - glad to see that someone else has a bigger gecko. Mine is male, a mack snow, 6-7 months old, 9.5 inches nose to tail tip, and 84 grams. I keep wondering how big he's going to get
