This guy, now 5,5 grams, have changed appearance a bit lately. It didn’t have much stripes or pattern on the sides before, only on the dorsal. It’s pale yellow when unfired (last pic), and dark yellow when fired (second pic). What would the morph be called?
I’m gonna ask first what you think it is?
Also pics of other side? And any ‘clearer’ too
I thought he was yellow flame. But starting to doubt that.
Wouldn’t say yellow.
That’s why I got crème (but staying now) but she’s actually yellow. Dulled a bit with age. And everyone I know working with yellows, they’re bright or a nice pastel yellow.
So I wouldn’t call him a yellow personally.
To me he appears to be a brindle. But clearer pics of both sides would help as they’re not that clear, might be on here though as mine seem to okay up when added…
Pics from just now, unfired. I admit he’s looking less and less yellow
If he’s brindle, I couldn’t be more happy!
Does he have reverse pinstripe?
I’d say brindle.
And as not a line up to the head, I wouldn’t say reverse pin no.
Brindles tend to have the darker underneath and if a reverse would have a clear dark line from tail to head.
And he’s a ‘normal’ coloured Crestie by looks of it. If you get what I mean there
Cool thanks! Can’t wait for him to grow up!
See what I mean about brindles seem to have spots too
Pain in the bums!
Oooh is he is defo a he, would be good for your new female
Actually just a thought…
Why aren’t you putting Fergus to queen bee?
Only 80% sure about the gender. Probably to small for a newbie like me to tell.
Yes, I’m starting to think we have to live with the spots
Look at my tiger. Seeing more and more spots EVERY DAY. Dammit, Fergus… stop the spotting now…
They never stop… EVER
Because you thought he had quite an ugly head and structure I don’t want to breed badly structured geckos…
Hey, never said ugly!
IF was me. I’d risk it. Keep back lots of tigers/brindles for baby above, his head isn’t the best either. But when you’ve got your extreme ones you can then work on getting the structure a lot better…
My lavs head isn’t great but I can work on that with KJ.
Basically you either work on structure now or pattern now…
Even with amazing structure you can still get out ones without it.
Floppy heads or crowned produce some with not great heads too…
Hehe, I know you didn’t say ugly inverted and small, or something like that. And I agree! His nose is very long as well…
Nothing wrong with a long snoot.
Spike, Dolly and Nelson here have longer noses. Just how some are
You would possibly get extremes from that pairing though… so…
So you could Keep them back then work on getting extremes with better structure…
Good point. One thing at a time. Too difficult to try to get both the first couple of years of breeding. But I’m glad I took the opportunity to buy three geckos with good structure (and stripes).
