    Default "Wild type" gargoyle gecko?

    I know that among crested geckos, buck-skins are generally considered the color variant that the animals were originally imported with, and I wonder; what sort of colors did gargoyle geckos originally import with? Some accounts I've seen say marbled pattern, but that doesn't say anything about the colors (grey? brown?) Does anybody here know what colors & patterns gargoyle geckos initially started out with when Rhacodactylus was the big thing in 1994?

    Edit: I do understand, however, that rhacodactylus don't conform to the typical concept of "Morphs", but I'd say it's a good question to ask, considering how far off most crested geckos are from their import-ancestors in 1994 in the colors department. :th_Jttesur:

    Sounds as if gargoyles started out with a broad array of colors on them! Were there any particular color patterns that seemed to appear most often?

    It was an even amount of patterns that they showed.
