    Default PINSTRIPE!

    Pinstripes:

    What is a Pinstripe?

    Pinstriping is an independent trait. A Pinstripe is a crested gecko morph. This distinction can be confusing when debating over the fact that the pinstriping trait itself is an independent trait that can be show up on any morph. It is a structural trait and since its also a singular independent trait that appears on other morphs we always include the pattern morph that the pinstriping trait develops on when disscussing or describing Pinstripes.

    Most morphs are a combination of multiple traits that can be reproduced with consistency. The Pinstripe is one of only two recognized morphs, the other being Dalmations, that have been accepted as a morph based on one single trait. This can cause some confusion between pinstriping and a Pinstripe as well as what the difference is between a morph and trait.

    A typical pinstripe is a crested gecko that has raised scales, like their eyelashes, that run down each side of the dorsal area and connect at the base of the tail.

    Pinstripes are one of the most popular and more attractive morphs that comes in a couple different flavors including:

    -Dashed Pinstipes -Partial Pinstripes -Full Pinstripes -Reverse Pinstripes -Phantom Pinstripes -Quad Pinstripes -Solid Back Pinstripes

    Dashed Pinstripes:
    A dashed pinstripe is a gecko with less then 50% pinstriping that includes multiple breaks down the dorsal. A lot of times the breaks occur at the same location on each side of the dorsal giving it a dashed look.

    Partial Pinstripes:
    Partial Pinstripes are geckos with pinstriping between the 50% and 99% range. Pinstriping between 50% and 75% is considered Low Percentage and 75% to 99% is considered High Percentage. There are those that fall very close to the low/high percentage division and those will be subjective to the viewer. One way to determine an accurate opinion would be to imagine all the pinstriping without any breaks. Fill in one side of the pinstriping with pieces from the other until it is full. That would be 50% pinning. Then imagine the rest and how much it would fill up on the opposite pinstripe. If it reaches past more then half the dorsal length, it would be a high percentage. If it reaches less then half the dorsal, it would be low pecentage.

    Full Pinstripes:
    A full pinstripe is a gecko with 100% pinning down each side of the dorsal that connect at the base of the tail. Even one break in the raised scales would put it into the "high percentage partial pin" catagory.

    Reverse Pinstripes:
    The reverse pinstripe actually refers to a coloration pattern rather then a structural one. Typically a pinstripe is a raised scale pattern that runs down each side of the dorsal. A reverse pinner has a dark colored stripe running along the outside of the raised scales existing in the upper lateral area. There is no structural difference just a very noticeable color patterned stripe.

    Phantom Pinstripes:
    The phantom pinstripe is a crested gecko that has pinstriping but lacks any white/cream in the dorsal area. The ideal phantom would be a patternless morph with a full pinstripe highlighted in cream. Typically a pinstripe contains pattern in zone D but the phantom does not. There may be a reminiscence of pattern but it should appear "muted" or like it was once there but now only exists in a darker shade of the base pattern. It's important to understand
    the lighter coloration can be found in the pinstripe scales, but not on the dorsum itself.

    Quad-Stripes:
    The quad-striped pinner is a crested gecko that has not only a full pinstripe but a lateral stripe, that is also structural, and exists on the sides of a crested between zones C and D. These are also called "sideburns". It typically runs from about the front leg to the back leg and is raised as much as the pinstripes on the dorsal are.

    Solid Back Pinstripe:
    A solid back pinner is a crested gecko with full pinstriping and a solid dorsal which contains no pattern or very close to no pattern.
