    Dash pin chocolate harley. Some will say flame due to lack of leg pattern but he will almost drifnitkey turn into a harlequin. Congrats on your first little one!

    Honestly, it's really hard in many cases to give a definite answer for geckos of that age. With a few exceptions (for example, pinstripe) I hold off on labels until they are a few months old. They will still change a lot from that point too, but at least you can have a more educated idea.

    I've had geckos hatch out who looked like that and wound up extreme. Others stay plain or even fade. The base colour is likely to change dramatically as well. So, pictures of the parents in cases like this are pretty helpful - but still just a guess at this point.

    Agree with Niffarious that babies can change a lot, and seeing parents can give you a better idea of how they will turn out though it looks like a flame for now. Also, depending on parents that one may end up sprouting a little (or a lot) more spots.
