In Reply to: Tremper incubation method: Cheating? posted by gekkogecko on May 10, 2003 at 13:28:18:

Once again, it's a matter of personal preference. Most of the color morphs we enjoy today are not natually occurring, so what difference does it make what temperature it was incubated? If breeders had not manipulated genetic traits, we'd all have only 'normal' Leopard Geckos!

I did a project on a pair of Albinos to see if the Viets/Tremper method was 'for real' and although there is not quantitative statistically sound data, I found the results to be very provocative! Both parents were rescued as babies, and the female was rather dark - kind of like a Bell, and the male was an obvious Tremper. Both recovered and grew up to be real beauties. Since they were aquired from a big chain store, I sincerely doubt that the breeder did anything other than incubate the eggs at 85 degrees. (I know what breeder they came from, BTW.)

Check out the pix on this link and please give me your thoughts...

Thanks,
