I either think she’s a flame of a tiger but I don’t have any knowledge when it comes to morphs and I’ve posted her asking but I haven’t received any information on what she could be, I just want to know what she is incase I want to breed her in the far future but mainly just to know what she is.
@jgreer456 Hellio and welcome to the forum! You have a very sweet little crestie!
@autumngeckos Can you shed some light on what morph this little girl is?
Thank you very much!!!
I don’t have many pictures of her she is not a fan of bright lights, I have a bunch of blurry pictures of her running away from the camera but these are some of the best I have, thank you very much tho I hope these help determine if she is a brindle tiger.
Looks like a nice harlequin partial pin. Looks like she’s got some visual tigering as well, but that could be the photos since the quality isn’t that great
She’s got too much pattern to be a flame (edit to add that the photo quality again makes it a bit difficult to tell but it looks like she’s got pattern to about half-way up her dorsal on my screen at least) and tigers (the morph as opposed to the trait) has less/no pinstriping which allows for the tigering/pattern to pass over the dorsal and onto the laterals creating the tiger-stripe look. But you got the right idea for sure
it’s a Monday and I am really feeling it
Thank you very much, sorry about the quality it really isn’t the best, some of these are screenshots as I have more videos of her than pictures but can’t put them up, that does look a lot like her tho… would she have a different base color tho the ones I seen had darker sides would this just be less of the harlequin mutation?
If you have Reddit I have some better videos of her on my page, all of the better quality stuff are videos and I don’t think I can put videos on here?
I don’t have reddit, but to be fair her size probably also has something to do with it - when they’re really small their pattern colours often blend together and in with the base, making it difficult to tell sometimes whether they’re a flame or a harlequin and how strong the visual tigering is. So once she gets a bit bigger and more calm it’ll probably be easier to tell
Okay thank you very much for your input I really appreciate it and that does make since, a lot of the pictures I’ve seen are of older geckos but I’ll have to wait and see, thank you very much!!
To be fair since she has visual tigering some would probably consider her a brindle - Since tigering is present in all cresties making brindle vs tiger almost entirely based based on the visuals similarly to flame vs harlequin, it can cause debates for days though Personally when it comes to the morph ie looking at it visually, I consider tigers = strong tigering with little to no pinning causing more vertical pattern/stripes; and brindles = more varied levels of tigering with some pinning cause more varied/horizontal pattern/stripes. Since the pinning and the tigering are fighting each other that’s what makes the most sense to me, and fits fairly well with the morphpedia descriptions:
“A Tiger crested gecko will have a lighter base colour with darker lines that run almost vertical from the dorsal down the laterals.”
“Brindle crested geckos are similar to tigers except the lines are broken with a more marbled / sporadic effect.”
I really appreciate it I’ve been trying for weeks to figure out her morph ik this isn’t 100% until she’s a bit older but for now I’ll stick with it but what would you call her morph “brindle partial pin”??
I would say harlequin partial pin (might add “with visual tigering” but not necessarily) - some might add the brindle part, i wouldn’t personally, but it wouldn’t necessarily be wrong due to the visual tigering. An important thing to know about crested geckos is that the knowledge about their genetics is very new, and still expanding. Up until a few years ago everything about their morphs was 100% based on the visual and not the genetics, and they were thought to be relatively “random” when it came to what they were able to produce. But now that a lot of traits/genes have been mapped, it’s more of a mix. A lot of the old terms are still used, which means that not everyone agrees on everything, like what is important to note, how to go about explaining the visual vs the genetics etc.
Yeah a lot of people say differnt things but I’ll stick with “harlequin partial pin” thank you very very much!!!
I’m throwing my opinion in here…
Firstly, not a flame as has markings on the limbs!
If we’re not thinking tiger, then would be an pin dash, extreme harlequin, possible tricolour with portholes
But the pics do not help much
Looking back at this when I am not half asleep I am seeing Harlequin (possibly extreme) Pin-dash with portholes
Better pics will still be needed for a definitive answer
Here’s a pic of some of my extreme tricolours… Maybe you can use these to help compare, since we are struggling with the pics
However, if it’s a harlequin, then it’s an extreme as the marking cover the upper laterals
And a pic of my brindle
I could see that, but im leaning towards just visual tigering/reverse pinning based on how ive seen other babies progress and how it blends into the breaks in the back - but yeah it isn’t easy to tell bc of the quality of the photos unfortunately
