    Question Unexpected breeding results


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi, this is my first season breeding. I bought my female as a RADAR from reputable source and I got my male as a Bold Stripe Bell Albino het. Eclipse from a private person, but he has been used as a breeder before. I expected all of babies to look more or less like hatchling B, but most of them look more like Hypo? I'm mostly confused about hatchling C, it's almost transpartent

    Anyone got an idea what happened here? Is it normal, or are my breeders something different than I bought them as?

    A is probably a hypo or even super hypo but both resemble parents, without seeing eyes cant tell if either is a radar. c and d both look hypoish, wondering if theres some murphys patternless or something in there possibly.. is it possible c is about to shed? they could get more pattern as they age though but doesnt seem like it'll happen.

    What you're getting in general is patternless stripe (no connection to Murphy patternless) which essentially means hypo or super hypo stripe. The whiter one could possibly be a Mack snow, which means that one of the parents would be a snow who has yellowed up since hatching. See if you get any more light colored ones like that.

    C and D are radars. C was not shedding, it hatched completely pink and I thought it would just gain more colour with time, which it didn't it looks beautiful, but now I'm concerned that I don't know exact genetics of parents, so I can't really sell babies as specific morphs

    See what else comes out in case it gives you more helpful information about what you have. It's true, you may have to label the geckos with morphs to the best of your ability and then add that they may have unknown hets. I'm not saying you have a supersnow, however, I hatched a bunch of albino super snows one year that never got the beige stripes. They remained pinkish white with solid red eyes and just a very pale beige marking on the head; the body remained white.
