  • New Gal from Ridge & Valley Reptiles: What would you call her?

    Primarily this thread is more to give Gary some props for being awesome to do business with! The man's got some great quality stock at great prices!!
    I definitely recommend checking out the available page on his website: www.ridgeandvalleyreptiles.com

    Anywho... I got this girl from him recently. Gary named her "Freak" and I didn't understand why until she was actually in my hands.

    When it comes to describing my geckos (especially on iherp,) I'm a complete OCD label queen. So it's driving me up the wall that I can't figure out what morph to label her as.

    I have her listed as a Yellow Pinstripe, but I'm not sure that's an accurate description of her. What do you guys think?

      Extreme harly possibly? Kind of hard to tell, I was thinking brindle at first, but thinking more harly. Is that her fired up or no? She is beautiful and will go great in your collection!
      I purchased a gorgeous girl from Gary as well! She just laid her first clutch for me.

        I think 5 species of geckos is enough! Lets not talk about the snakes!

              Extreme harly partial pinner? I have a thread I just posted talking about innovative morphs, and I would definitely put this in that category. Congrats, she's VERY impressive.

                What Antonio... you didn't think "freak" was a good enough morph name LOL? Thanks for the kind words. I don't get too caught up in morph names, but I'm curious as to what others would call her as well. I'd lean towards some form of extreme harlequin, as that's what I normally get from this cross, but once in a while I get an offspring where the patterning so overwhelms the base color that the base color almost becomes lost.

                    Very beautiful gecko! Very interesting also....

                    Is she fired up here? It would be awesome to see some side straight side pics and and angle to see her neck region. The white patterning on the sides of this gecko seem like there connected to the porthole trait in an advanced state. Its also cool how the pattern under the white wall was connected through the dorsal on the back side. This guy is probably a decendent of many Tigers, Flames, and Partial Pinners.

                    Im thinking Yellow and Olive HP/Partial Pin Extreme Harlequin with white walls and fringing.

                      It's a female. There are additional pictures of mine in this thread... http://pangeareptile.com/forums/showthread.php?t=34986

                      Parents are a full pinstripe harlequin and an extreme harlequin high percentage pinstripe. No "olive"in the parents or this gecko. The base color is a clean lavender, although I think the high amount of yellow overlaying this may give some impression of olive under certain lighting conditions.

                      I think I prefer "freak" to all of that LOL.

                        Sorry I tend to refer to all geckos as male, not sure why, probably because im male also,lol.

                        Yeah color is tricky when its not in person, and she looks very "olivey" on my screen in this thread, but not at all in the other.

                        Freak is always a substitute. especially with a gecko that has so much going on. Also, with parents like that, its a pretty good chance thats what she is. I was just speculating tigers and flames because of the way the patterning on the back side appears like its trying to connect through the dorsal which is typical of a tiger morph.

                            Gary, your geckos are always so gush-worthy! What a lovely girl... I'm curious to see the sister to this girl that you kept, too! Do you have pictures of her anywhere?

                            Venus (aka "ladderback) is still doing very well... I bred her again to Zipper this year... I'll keep you posted on your grandkids as they pop out

                            You should be ecstatic to have such a lovely gecko from Gary, they carry great genes and produce exceptional offspring!
                            I gave my geckos up... but I want to come back :c

                              @everyone: Thank you all for the compliments they are very much appreciated!

                              @ Gary: No problem, always willing to give good businessmen a shout out! I've got a couple more threads planned to show off your stock, one for Amok and another for Queen Tar-Tara's first hatchling which should be popping out of its egg within the next 20 days or so. My very first hatchling from another gecko took 120 days to hatch so I'm assuming QT's will take just as long.

                              Ya, there is no olive in this gecko, my pictures are of very poor quality. For one she doesn't like to take photos so that was a challenge, second the pictures really dont do her justice. Her belly is almost pure white which creeps up the sides. And her dorsal area is a bit creamier than the photos show. That olive that we are seeing is really a bit lighter and definitely more on the lavenders side.

                              Ya I know, this is my third gecko from Gary. I bought a high percentage pinstripe from him last year and now I'm sitting on 4 clutches of eggs. The first clutch is due to hatch over the next 2 or 3 weeks.... I can't wait!
