I love the Pictus Geckos and have a few ready to go. I have only put 2 on MM as I was trying to get the traits ready first, on here. But if any one is interested please message me and I can show you some


I was trying to find a color Dominant and recessive chart for Pictus and was going to post the question- when I found this post to ask.

Anyone know where a chart is, or can help?

I found @eaglereptiles post here and it was very helpful:

“ Lined (Stripe) - Dominant

Xanthic - Recessive
Caramel - Recessive
Anery - Recessive
Amel - Recessive

Banded - ???”

In addition I have seen:

stripe banded (no idea if proved out)

I am guessing that it is just a combination of stripe and banded (I believe banded is polygenic)

In pretty much all reptiles, snow is used to refer to an xanthic amel. and because they are both present in pictus geckos I am going to say it is probably just a combo instead of a new gene

Didn’t know if there were charts or Pictus calculators of dominant recessives or other combos.

I don’t know of any personally and wouldn’t be surprised if there aren’t any or the ones that do exist are outdated as they are not as popular as they should be.
