    Nice looking gecko. She's definitely an albino. I don't think there's any reliable way to tell a Tremper albino from a Rainwater. Based on the first picture, she's pretty yellow, so unless you saw...

    I don't think there's any way to really tell a gecko's age once it's pattern is set. I would guess at least 3 months and not more than 9 months, but it's a total guess.

    The eyes of the second one look like normal albino eyes. I have found that some albinos have eyes that look solid black, but if you shine a flashlight behind them you'll see that they're solid red. ...

    Two high yellows could produce an albino if each has a gene for albino (i.e. is "het" for albino). Tangerine is polygenetic so one or both of the high yellows could have genes for tangerine. It's...

    It's not uncommon for geckos to act more or less OK even when they are mildly to moderately ill. Sometimes it's not clear that there's a severe problem until the gecko is in pretty bad shape and...

    If you think about it, a "high yellow" really means a gecko with reduced spotting so it looks more yellow than the classic wild type. Spotting reduction is a polygenetic trait as opposed to being...

    It certainly doesn't hurt to pair her if she's going to be laying anyway. I've paired up geckos that were just shy of 50 grams but were ovulating and not eating.

    A gecko is either an albino or not an albino. This gecko is not an albino. It is losing its body spots very quickly which means that when it matures it will be a hypo if it keeps 10 or fewer body...

    She looks great! Feed juveniles as much as they want to eat (stopping after a good number of feeders in 15 minutes is fine too). She may slow down as she matures; don't worry about her weight. The...

    I don't really see it as aberrant, since as far as I can see, all the bands are complete. Well, maybe the band nearest the tail is not quite complete, in which case it's aberrant on a technicality....

    He has such a clean and purplish tail that I suspect he's a blizzard. In general, it's not a good idea to breed geckos whose genetic background you don't know. That's not because it's unhealthy,...

    It does look as if the juvenile beige pattern of the Murphy's patternless is disappearing. I'm not familiar enough with patternless to know whether it's a snow, albino or both or not.
