May 6, 2007 - After three years of development, we are pleased to offer the first public sales of the DIABLO BLANCO.
It is important with any new valid morph that proper naming and a standard be carefully considered and published at the time of release.
The DIABLO BLANCO genetics have revealed three eye variations and two body color variants. At the time of this release DBs can be broken down into two categories: the Blanco and the Diablo Blanco - defined as follows......
BLANCO = The Blanco is a genetically patternless gecko with normal colored albino eyes. The preferred head, body and tail color is white. Some indivduals may have yellowish color on the body, which will be removed through the next generations of selective breedings.
DIABLO BLANCO = The Diablo Blanco is a genetically patternless gecko with partial or complete red colored eyes. As in the Raptor morph there will be Snake-eyed Diablo Blancos, with one or more eyes being 50% solid red in color. and there will be geckos with two all red eyes, which will be called Diablo Blancos (DBs). The highest form of this morph is a solid white patternless gecko with two all red eyes. Some indivduals may have yellowish color on the body, which will be removed through the next generations of selective breedings.
The “White Devil” is the result of crossing very white Tremper Albino "Blazing" Blizzard (BB) females with our best Raptor male and breeding those double het offspring together. It is not the result of crossing a pure BB with a pure BB and accidentally getting a variant of that morph with all red eyes. No BB has ever been produced with two all red eyes. I also introduced the genes for giant into the Diablo Blanco project, so many of these DBs will have above average size. The first pure DB with two all red eyes hatched in May 2006.

The expected outcome of my DB project breeding results for this year are as follows:
* Diablo Blancos - two all red-eyes or snake eyes
* Blancos - het for DB
* Albino Blizzards - het for DB
* Raptors - het for DB
