    Default Baby Morph ID!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hatchlings born 3 weeks ago. Completely different patterns (I assume that's normal?). I never really attempted to identify the parents. But I've included 2 photos of the male, if that's at all helpful.

    The mom is a blizzard. One of the parents is a Mack snow. As mentioned above, one hatchling is a blizzard and one is a Mack snow. They are both het for albino and the snow is het for blizzard. In general, breeding geckos together where you don't know anything about the parents' genetics can be problematic in terms of being able to sell the offspring to other breeders, though it's not a problem for the hatchlings.

    It can be hard to distinguish between patternless and blizzard. In this case, since the mother is purplish and the hatchling is clearly a blizzard, I'd go with blizzard.

    Another question. Not sure if there is a separate forum for this. But I've kept the babies housed together so far. Any idea how long I should do that? And is it possible that one might have eaten the other's tail???
