The newest project we are working on at Moon Valley Reptiles is our Tricolor crested gecko project. Although not a true morph, the “tri-color” harlequin combination makes for a very striking gecko. We are pairing up 3 outstanding males for the 2012 season, with even bigger plans in 2013, to provide genetic variation over the next few years, incorporating new tri-color genes as necessary.
2012 Tri-color Breeders
Our pairings for 2012 include Fandango as our centerpiece male, paired with Hänsel to bring more cream to the harlequin pattern. Bento may be paired with him later in 2012. Awesome-O and Sienna should produce white-tipped crests to be combined with other Tricolors and Pinstripes to produce full pinstripe tri-color crested geckos in the future!
Tri-color Crested Gecko Babies
We hatched and acquired a number of baby tricolors in 2011 and early 2012. Time will tell if the holdbacks are going to go back into the project, but there are many outstanding offspring and new lines to cross in the future! New geckos added are: Turbo & Barleycorn from Rhactastic Rhacs and TV’s Frank, Gypsy, Cambot & Tom Servo from Gekkotas.com. The Living Palette also provided us with Liption, a beautiful tri-color female.
2011 Tri-color Breeders & Offspring
Our breeders from 2011 and some older shots of the offspring.
Unfortunately, we lost Lucas and Scaramouche last year to separate health issues so our plans have been delayed but not deterred.
