Hey all. How are you all doing?

This is the best I can do just visually. Obviously I can't tell what genes they carry that aren't expressed. If you're planning to breed them, you won't be able to tell people what their genetics are and reputable breeders won't want to buy them. Many people feel that it's irresponsible to sell geckos of unknown genetics because people buy them, breed them, and produce more geckos of unknown genetics which muddies the waters. This is a personal decision:

1. superhypo (no body spots) albino
2. hypo (few body spots) albino
3. superhypo stripe
4. high yellow (normal with reduced spotting)
5. albino
6. high yellow normal
7. I'm assuming this picture is the same as 1 and 2. The one on the left (also picture 1) has solid red eyes indicating that it has the eclipse gene.

Note the following:
a. It's impossible to tell whether any of these geckos are Mack snows, since they get yellower as they mature.
b. It's impossible to know for sure which strain of albino your albinos are. Picture 5 kind of looks like a Bell albino, but it could just as easily be a dark Tremper albino. It's a big no-no to breed albinos where you don't know the type because if they're 2 different types you'll end up with normal looking geckos that have genes for both albino types and it will be impossible to tell their albino genetics.
c. any geckos that have solid colored eyes have the eclipse gene.

I hope this is helpful.

I appreciate the time you took to identify the geckos. Thank you very much Aliza :)
