    Default Leopard gecko: Breeding suggestions

    I have a female Hyper-Xanthic 100% raptor poss het blizzard and I am looking for a male that would produce the best quality babies. I just don't know what morph would be the best option. I've gone back and forth thinking I want to keep the high yellow/high contrast in the mix. Or breeding her with a blizzard to see if her het comes out. Overall I just want to produce the best possible babies.

    Any suggestions would be wonderful!

    The short answer is that a healthy whatever you like is a "best possible gecko". I do think that the seller had kind of a typo on the label. If I were told that a gecko was "100% raptor", I'd be expecting a raptor gecko. I think the seller probably meant "100% het for raptor" since this gecko is clearly not even an albino. In order to choose what to breed her with, it's important to unpack the genetics of this gecko. She is:
    het for Tremper albino
    het for eclipse
    possesses a stripe gene
    possibly het for blizzard
    has a potential to express the hyperxanthic trait (which I think is linebred, but I'm not sure)

    Knowing that the gecko has these traits, think about which you want to produce and get a male gecko with those traits. If the whole thing is still a mystery to you, I"d recommend doing some more research before breeding.

    Ok I was thinking the same thing about the "100% raptor". Good to know I'm not the only one, but thanks for the answer it's helpful!!
