I have laid down the foundation genes and, by carrying the DB one more generation
before release, have advanced the process towards the best white color possible.
It's now up to all of you to get creative and strive towards perfection. Imagine
a porcelain white Super Giant DIABLO BLANCO with two all red eyes!
(revised 4-29-07 - today, in going over the gecko's eyes, I've selected to post
on May 6th, with a magnifying glass, I can clearly see some are albino blizzards=BBs.)
As expected, the double het breeding results have produced several albino
blizzards (= BBs) with their typical darkening eye pigments or snake eyes.
It is worthy of mention, that, out of over 130 young produced so far, only two raptor
types have occurred and these have large amounts of white markings. Mathematically
there should be some raptors het for DB, too, as the hatchings progress.
INCREDIBLE SURPRISES........ This project has produced some results that
will change the way we think about leopard gecko genetics.
The big surprise has been that an entirely new leopard gecko morph has been
unlocked from the DB genes........
Such a result is the all new Tremper Xanthic !!
Just as the Ball python breeders have discovered,
I found three years ago that when certain combinations of gecko genes come into contact
they release or unlock hidden genes. My original Aptor line contained a gene
unlocker, which gave us the hidden gene for the all red and all black eye color of
the Raptor/Eclipse morphs. That same gene unlocker has been now been passed down through the development of the
Diablo Blanco giving us the yellow eye hidden gene as seen in
the new Xanthic.
The Xanthic is a patternless albino gecko with eyes a startling
bright yellow to rich golden in color, and all shades in between, never before
seen in leopard geckos. Their golden eye is laced with the fine red lines
associated with normal albino eyes. To date, I have
hatched 9 of these new mutations. Most have an all white head and tail with a
lemon-yellow body color combined with this new eye mutation. I have not decided
when I will release the first pure Xanthics.
I never like to mention or offer a new morph until 2-3 years after development
here, but in this case you should know that the DB bloodline unlocks the genes
to produce the Xanthic ! It would take me another two years to isolate
these new genes from the DB, so you can be in on the cutting edge of my newest
creations from the beginning.
I feel it is just a matter of time before someone hatches a gecko from these new
DBs with solid bright yellow eyes with a pure white or pure lemon colored body, head and tail or combination
thereof - the first Super Xanthic!
Producing your own SXs are not guaranteed as part of this DB offering, but
getting the Xanthic genes at this time should be looked at as a huge
added bonus, which demonstrates the power of the DIABLO BLANCO line and
the gene unlocker it carries.
Who knows what other surprises these DBs will reveal??
(this page will be updated as needed to reflect any emerging new information.)
