    Default Morphs?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello,

    I recently picked these two from someone who said he was leaving the hobby. He didn't have these two morphed but did have lineage for both so I was hoping that'd be enough to get a proper ID on them. Thank you so much for your time

    Based on the labels, the first one is a tangerine Tremper albino and the second is a super hypo (no body spots) tangerine (orange colored) baldy (no head spots) that has a gene for Tremper albino.

    Thank you so much for your reply! The SG is supposed to stand for Super Giant. Would you be able to help me understand the genetics behind the super giant and giants or able to point me in the direct of some resources?

    The idea is that the giant gene is co-dominant. This means that if the gecko has one giant gene it will be larger than average. If it has 2 copies of the gene it will be MUCH larger than average. Check out leopardgeckowiki.com which has a list of leopard gecko morphs with an explanation of each and some pictures. Also check out Reptile Calculator
