    Hi everyone im new to leos and have no idea of morphs.
    Picked up this girl (tsf) 3 weeks ago at an expo and I'm curious as to what she would be referred to as.
    Parentage is rainbow x mt/mb het ndbe which I also don't understand.
    Thanks very much

    "rainbow" refers to coloration that includes greenish and orange. The article below will give you information about the rest of the parentage: Noir Désir - The New Recessive Trait with Leopard Geckos - Gecko Time - Gecko Time.
    I would simply call the gecko "aberrant", meaning that it has broken body bands (which forms that circle on the back) but no broken tail bands. It certainly has the potential for tangerine coloring. In my opinion, it seems to be a gecko that has some nice genetic traits but doesn't really demonstrate them so well, partly because the ndbe is recessive. It is a lovely looking gecko, though.
