Leopard Gecko Morphs and Genetics

Morphs

There are a lot of different morphs available in the leopard gecko community. Some are reputable and some are not. Here are the ones that are common and not too hard for the new hobbyist to understand:

 

  • Albino's 3 different kinds:
    • Bell
    • Tremper
    • Las Vegas
  • Different morphs of Albino are:
    • Sun Glow (Tremper)
    • Hybino (Bell)
    • Radar (Bell)
    • Raptor (Tremper)
    • Tangerine (Tremper or Bell)
    • Patternless (Tremper, Bell, Las Vegas)
    • Snows (Trempers, Bells, Las Vegas)
    • Banded (All)
    • Giant (All)
    • Enigma (All)
    • Aptor
    • Jungle (All)

*Then of course there is Het (see below) for any albino above.Leopard Geckos Morphs, Care Sheet and Breeding

Genetics

 

In this segment I will do my best to explain the difference in the genes. I will be as basic as I can because it was confusing for me when I did my research on it.

 

  • Dominate gene - a dominate gene is when the genes show even if its mixed with other genes.
    • Hypo
    • Engima
    • Giants
    • Enigma
    • White n Yellow
  • Recessive genes - are when both parents need to have the gene in their DNA in order for them to show in the off spring.
    • Tremper Albino
    • Las Vegas Albino
    • Bell Albino
    • Blizzard
    • Patternless
    • Raptor
    • Eeclipse
  • Co-Dominate genes - are when two different genes are blended and they become equal dominates.
    • Mack Snow
  • Line Breeding - this is when the gene is bred over and over to achieve the desired trait or color.
    • tangerines
    • high yellow
    • jungles
  • Heterozygous - also know as het. This is when the parents have different genes and the offspring inherits both genes. This offspring becomes a carrier for both genes.
