    Arrow TIGER!

    Tigers were also among the first specimens collected, and are among the favorites still today.

    Color:

    Tigers are said to have a uniform color in all the pattern zones which is lighter than the pattern color. They come in many colors, and since now there is pattern involved, it's important to know how to properly describe your gecko when discussing morphs. Base color x pattern color x morph x Traits is the order of description, for example: a yellow gecko with orange stripes and dalmatian spots would be called a Yellow and Orange Tiger with Dal Spots.

    Pattern:

    The pattern consists of a vertically streaked bold pattern that reaches from one lower lateral area, across the dorsal and down to the opposite lower lateral area. Streak-like patterns are usually accepted and there also tends to be loose blotches of pattern in all zones with this morph. Tigers are also said to have patterned bellies.

    For mine, his sides & head are tiger, then his dorsal & the lower part of his sides fits a harley... he also has a decent amount of damnations spots & I would say about 70% pinstripes... is that about hownyours is? Minus the dal spots?

    My lovely doesn't have any pinstripes as far as I've seen, but she does have a number of dalmation spots too (she keeps getting more... I think they add character ) Her head fits tiger, her dorsal and lower side look harley too, and her upper sides and I think belly look tiger-striped.

    Could I see a pic?

    Morphs are various combinations of traits. It is entirely possible to own a gecko that doesnt fit completely or even at all into the named morphs we have today. Its also possible to have named morph mixes, like Tiger-Flame. In time popularity, and proven numbers, will compell us to add to the morph list and with so many independent traits the morph possibilities are seemingly endless.

    Here's one of her after jumping at a picture of a gecko on my screen. I wasn't too happy with her being so close to the screen, but it didn't seem to bother her and the lighting actually let the camera pick up her darker patterns.
    Thanks for the info about morphs and for having this guide here, It's very helpful
