  1. Hi, I was wondering is this site still active? I also have two questions about crested gecko genetics. Is an extreme harlequin when the pattern is displayed on the front and back legs as well as 50% or more on the sides of the crested gecko.

    Is the tricolored when you have three base colors all around or does it have to be with the harlequin gene?

      You will likely get a different answer from everyone you ask about morphs because it’s subjective, and the genes are much more complex than some allelomorphic reptiles: leopard geckos, ball pythons, etc. that have very predictable dominant/recessive alleles. Crested geckos are very polygenic and there can be multiple genes and alleles along with other factors that can contribute to the final look of an individual.

      The following is my personal opinion, some of which is widely accepted by the community. However, descriptions change over time so this information could be out of date, depending on how each of these traits develop over time.

      An extreme harlequin can have a couple of different definitions. I would say if there is more than 50% pattern color on the legs and body, it could be called extreme. Another definition is where the body pattern breaks into the creamy dorsal area on top – the flame stripe down the back of flames and harlequins. So 60% pattern and/or a pattern that breaks up the flame on the back.

      Usually tricolor will refer to a harlequin, because otherwise you could have an orange and brown flame gecko with “portholes” that are spots of white along the sides. Although technically that’s three colors, a tricolor should have as close to equal representation as possible. That is only possible with harlequin status – a base color and a pattern color, and on top of this you usually have white or cream. Usually it’s dark base color, orange pattern color and cream. You should have at least 25% pattern color to qualify as harlequin and the cream can be minimal, but more is considered desirable.
