    Default Anyone have phantom pinstripe projects going on?

    I have been reading up on CG genetics (because I am a science geek and think genetics are cool). I also spend a fair amount of time on here researching about geckos. I see a lot of breeding projects going on with reds, dals/superdals, harlequins, flames, but not much with phantoms. Is the phantom pinstripe more of a recessive trait? What kinds of phantom projects are you planning or have going on currently? Just curious. :-)

    Two years in a row now I have a pair that throws phantoms. Definitely don't breed them that way on purpose since phantoms are not that popular. There are no dominant or recessive traits in crested geckos, it's just another described morph. The pair that throws them aren't phantoms either - one is a creamsicle flame, and one is a full pinstripe with solid laterals.

    Thanks Krystal, it's hard to find any genetics info per se, just descriptions of morphs and independent traits. I guess the fun of breeding is seeing what pair throws what traits. It definitely seems like there are sometimes patterns within pairs...thanks for the response.

    I have seen a couple of phantom pinners that I thought were cool recently, so that prompted my question. They may not be that popular, but I think they are cool.

    JB has her JB's Super Quad Stripe Phantom Menace Line ©. The famous Magnum was her inspiration for the project.

    Check out AC reptiles phantom pinstripe projects. For years he was about the only person activly breeding phantoms rather than producing them as a by product from other pairs. We are growing several geckos out for a phantom project next year, including this boy.

    That's awesome, I would love to see more done with them. Although not as flashy as a harlequin, red, flame, they are interesting in their own way.

    I want some of whatever you're smoking.
    Also Magnum is only 7 grams so my "line" is kind of more of a squiggle that peters out into eraser marks right now.

    Um....the thing is phantom pinners do not have raised white scales, that would make them pinstripe. The last however would fall into a phantom pinner as it has non white raised scales. Anyone else agree?

    I personally don't mind calling them a phantom if the dorsal is the same color as the base color with no cream or other markings regardless if the raise stripes are white.

    I can't wait until they produce solid red patternless phantoms with crisp white raised scales. That's gonna pop!
