    Default Thoughts on these two females?

    Apologies for the crossposting but I figured I'd ask here too

    My sister originally bought these two girls at a reptile expo last year. I remember having trouble figuring out what exactly a 'ghost' is when I first started to research leo morphs...I'm guessing the one on the left is probably a hypo mack snow? She has a very greenish hue and just a few light spots down her spine (plus that big 'ole freckle ).

    The girl on the right I don't think really qualifies as 'hypo' from what I've been reading. She definitely has more than 10 spots on her, but not as spotty as a normal. She has just a little bit of carrot in her tail. I'm not sure whether to consider her just a high-yellow normal or tangerine.

    They've both got fertile eggs cooking in the incubator from a tremper hybino male.

    I agree about the hypo --it does have too many spots. I'd call it a tangerine. The other may or may not be a Mack snow. If you get any snow babies you'll know. There are some breeders who have produced a ghost line of leopard gecko. Rebecca Hassler (Dragoon Gecko) in Europe is currently working with them and wrote a very comprehensive article here: Leopard Gecko Morph Special: The Ghost | Gecko Time. I suspect some people are calling their geckos "ghosts" when they look faded but are not necessarily from the ghost bloodline.

    The 'ghost' girl's first pair of fertile eggs should be hatching in the next few weeks, so we'll see what happens then

    Thanks for the article link too. I hadn't read that before. Very informative! I generally deal with snakes so the gecko stuff is still a big learning process for me.
