    Hello i'm from Brazil and I'm starting with geckos and I don't know much about genetics, he's a Mack Super Snow Albino. What pattern should I look for to cross with him in the future?

    As you learn about geckos, you will also be learning about genetics and the hope is that before you start breeding you will be able to answer that question yourself. In general, the Super Snow albino has 2 copies of the albino gene and 2 copies of the Mack snow gene. If you don't know which albino strain (there are 3) your gecko is, then any future breeding will produce animals of unknown genetic heritage. To get albinos you will need to breed your gecko to another gecko that has at least 1 gene of the (same strain of) albino. All offspring will be Mack snow, since they will all get 1 copy of the snow gene. To get super snows, the other parent will need to have at least 1 Mack snow gene.
    This should get you started. Here is an article that may be helpful:
