:Is it true (I still have to find my male a mate) that you can breed to tan adults and get completely different morphs from the parents?

:If this is true I'll save myself some cash on an expensive female and see what comes out of breeding her to my yellow fire/buckskin male.

At this point in Crested Gecko captive breeding, Cresteds appear to be polymorphic. This means that any color phase of adults are capable of producing any color phase of babies. Most likely, with selective breeding over several generations for traits such as color, dalmation spotting, and tiger/brindle patterning, we should be able to get more predictable results. To begin this process, it is best to start pairing up animals with similar characteristics. That way, you can breed out the other genes over the course of successive generations. Good luck!
