Bandits

  

Bandit: AKA Bold/Bandit, Jungle Designer. A Bandit is a designer phase gecko with a distinct broad dark band running across the nose area between the nasal openings and the eyes. The rich and lasting black color trait was a random mutation that has been bred here since 1995. For 12 years we selectively bred for reduced head spots resulting in individuals that have 3-4 head markings. This morph has the richest concentration of black pigment as adults than any other morph, which is eye-catching when contrasted with the cream body color. They come mostly in Jungle and Striped patterns. Banded Bandits and Albino Bandits are somewhat rare as of 2012.

The Bandit pattern is a polygenic trait so the best examples need to be bred to each other, and back to the parents, to maintain the desired results.  Since this trait is not a true recessive and the fact that Bandit offspring may or may not have the nose banding, such offspring are still considered Bandits and can be called Bold Bandits.  The Bandits with a complete nose band may be called Full Mask Bandits or Bandits.

Cinnamon Albino Bandits:  Our purebred true Bandit line produces this uniquely colored Tremper albino. Limited numbers of this variation have been around in Europe and the United States for 4 years. 

We tested the Cinnamons by breeding Albino Bandits that were het for eclipse to each other and got Cinnamon Albinos and normal Albinos from the same clutch of eggs (see below). This result has been duplicated with three clutches of eggs.

Cinnamon eggs incubated at 89-90F produce males (see photo below) that have the same coloration of cinnamon, light creamy yellow and sometimes a lavender blend as the female Cinnamons, proving that the cinnamon color is not caused by temperature.  One would expect that a Tremper albino Bandit to resemble a typical Tremper albino in coloration, but this is not the case whatsoever. The same mechanism that creates the highly concentrated black pigment in the best Bold Bandits and Bandits also concentrates the albino pigments in the Bold Bandit Albinos and Bandit Albinos resulting in the Cinnamon Albinos. The Cinnamon Albino appears to be a marker indicating the presence of our Bold/Bandit line.

Simply put, the Cinnamon Albino Bandit is a Tremper Albino color variation liked directly to our Bandit line.  It is a recessive genetic that breeds true.  Cinnamon x Cinnamon = 100% Cinnamons.  Cinnamon x Normal = 100% Normals het Cinnamon.
