    Default 2 New Baby Leo's. Have an idea but not too sure of the morph

    Hi everyone. I stopped by the local reptile specialty store and saw these 2 stunning geckos who had just arrived the day earlier. They were both advertised as bold stripe bandit geckos. However getting home I took a closer look and saw one of them didn't have the trademark nose marking of a bandit. No biggie, but not being from a breeder, their genetics are probably unknown. Is there any way these can turn up without being striped. On the one of them, the tail has unbroken bands while the other has a striped tail. Would it be considered having broken pattern on the body but banded tail making it an abberent?

    Anyways they were really tiny when I got them. Probably too young for most breeders to even sell/ship.

    I think I may have responded to this on another forum. The fact that even the one with some banding on its tail doesn't have the entire tail banded lets you call it a stripe, in my opinion. As far as I know, to be a "bandit" the gecko has to come from known bandit lines, even if it does have the nose marking. It will be interesting to see how well they preserve the bold stripe look. Hopefully they will, but I did produce years of non-bandits that looked pretty bold when they were little and then it broke up into spots. Good luck, they're really nice looking.
