In Reply to: recessive/co-dominant... posted by Clownfishie on May 03, 2003 at 15:53:39:

In leopard geckos we work with two different types of traits...

Line bred or polygenetic.... and simple recessives

Line Bred or Polygenetic Traits Include:

Tangerine, snow, jungle, stripe, carrot tail, high yellow, and others.

Simple Recessive Traits Are:

Blizzards, Patternless, Albino, and others

Here is a simple way to know if a trait is recessive in leopard geckos... Any trait with hets is recessive, if there are no hets it is line bred.

There are NO co-dom traits in leopard geckos (that we know of)... a pastel jungle ball python is an example of a co-dom trait in reptiles. It acts as a visible het, and when two pastels are bred together they have a 25% chance of producing super pastels.

If you have any other questions let me know and I'll do my best to answer them.
