Genetics For Herpers
Genetics For Herpers is a great way to learn genetics. This book starts with the basics and teaches everything you need to know in order to understand the role that genetics plays in breeding. The book is 84 pages (7½" x 5½") and includes over 120 illustrations plus a glossary. Click here to learn more or order.

For Sale - 2014 Leopard Geckos
Mack Snow Leopard Gecko (Eublepharis macularius)
Heterozygous for Mack Snow, a codominant mutation. Specimens carrying a single copy of this unique allele appear silver and black at hatching, growing to be lighter than normal, sometimes with pale lemon tints and slightly reduced black spotting. Many of ours will be from various outcrosses to other mutations, and may be priced higher if the genetics involved warrant it. Click here to learn more/see adults.
Las Vegas Albino Mack Super Snow Leopard Gecko (Eublepharis macularius)
Homozygous for Las Vegas Albino, a recessive mutation. The second strain of Albino to be discovered, not genetically compatible with the Tremper or Bell line. Many folks believe these to be superior to other albinos as they often tend to remain lighter and more yellow in color. In truth, they seem better to work if intense yellows is your goal in breeding, while Tremper seems better for enhancing oranges. But no breeder is complete without some of both! Many of ours will be from various outcrosses to other mutations, and may be priced higher if the genetics involved warrant it. Click here to learn more/see adults.
Bold Stripe Leopard Gecko (Eublepharis macularius)
A stunning derivative of the Jungle lines, Bold Stripes are just that - boldly striped with light coloration down the mid-dorsal line. Usually this extends the full length of the tail as well. Pattern and contrast varies a lot, and no two are alike.
What do all these numbers and stuff mean?
The description of each specimen is followed by the sex of the specimen, it's date of birth, a stock number identifying the specimen, and the selling price. Photos are of the exact specimen listed, most are taken inside a standard 16oz deli cup for size comparison, and are updated as time permits.
Understanding our stock numbers may prove helpful in identifying unrelated specimens:
- F-C001 indicates a 2006 hatching (we started this code in 2001 with 'A', 2002 is 'B' and so on).
- F-C001 indicates the harem group, and thus all specimens listed as F-C are from the same harem group (usually one male and four females).
- F-C001 indicates this is the first hatchling photographed from that breeding group. F-C012 would be the twelfth hatchling photographed from that breeding group.
CB - Captive Bred, usually followed by year of birth. Hatched or born from parents kept in captivity.
CH - Captive Hatched, usually followed by year of birth. Hatched or born from a gravid wild-caught female.
WC - Wild-Caught. While all of our stock is produced here, some of it is produced from wild-caught adults that we maintain. We will occasionally sell some of the breeder animals as surplus.
LTC - Long Term Captive, usually followed by year of capture. Applies only to WC animals, indicates they have been maintained for a long period in captivity and are very well established.
50%, 66%, 100% - Percentage of likelihood the specimen is heterozygous for the listed trait.
