Shameless promo-whore, I know but I picked up a KILLER burgundy juvie last week Friday. Omega Red is usually an 'ew' brown but he fires up REALLY nice. I have another brown gecko and when he fires up, he stays the same but with some hints of orange and tan. Would Omega be considered a red since he's not red all the time, just some of the time?
And I'm happy to report my 'pink and green' female is really light orange and gray. Yes, I feel cheated indeed but maybe I'm just bitter cuz I paid 390 dollars for her and another female and BOTH are nothing special as far as coloring.

Most reds are not red most of the time but a more tan & pink color. High qauilty reds retain there color more often in my opinion but sometimes you could hold a buckskin next to a red crested during the day any it would be a little difficult to tell them apart.

He's high end...he's one of the babies Matt produced. Sometimes, he's even got a little purple but I REALLY need to get some pics but my digital camera is one of those ones ordered from a shopping network so of course, it sucks.
Most of the reds I've seen for sale....aren't really red. They're subcolors of red. So it's sort of like splitting hairs. It's not really red but it's not complete not red either. That goes for green and black too. It's sort of green since it's olive but it's not true green or it's almost black because the brown is REALLY dark. Just my opinion though...however, Matt DID produce this minty/seafoam green gecko that I've seen at a local pet store.

I have a Kevin Dunne red female who you wouldn't look twice at most of the time; almost corpse-white. But when she fires up she becomes crayon red all over. And her red seems to come through in her offspring.

I have a male that's brick red 24/7 and a sub-adult female that goes from tan to pink to pale red when fired up. Interested to see how those traits pass on.

My crested "Vey" is pretty damn red, kind of a blood red.
