    I thought a RADAR was a Bell form of RAPTOR?

    Either way do the letters stand for anything or just a name?

    Well a RAPTOr is pretty much a tremper eclipse, theres a big discussion going on about what actually makes a raptor, if it actuallly needs to have the patternless stripe gene, or if its just a tremper eclipse.
    raptor = tremper eclipse
    radar = bell eclipse

    i know nova doesnt stand for anything, but im not to sure about radar standing for anything.

    Thanks for lcearing up the abrievations. :]
    That means I have 0.0.1 leopard geckos.
    Because my mom won't let me get more. :/

    "Aptors

    November 2004 - After four years of development........

    Introducing the A.P.T.O.R. = a Carrot-head, Carrot-tail, Hypo Tangerine, Patternless, Tremper Albino in both normal and Giant size. A.P.T.O.R.s have the regularly pigmented albino eye.

    This new patternless gene is totally separate from the "leucistic" and blizzard lines, and therefore, will combine genetically with all other known morphs. Notice that it lacks any banded pattern so often seen in all hypo variations, which have been derived from the "Florida" strain. The A.P.T.O.R. does not carry the gene to make the banded body pattern. It hatches 90-100% patternless (see above photo) and often carries the gene for reverse stripe. Any pattern seen is in the form of small light-colored, mid-dorsal, spots, circles or faint lines, which are often overtaken by the tangerine during the first 8 months of growth.

    In the year 2000 I developed a tangerine line of albinos whereby the the orange body markings take over the existing lighter body pattern. This can occur in striped, reverse striped, jungle and banded patterned albinos that carry this gene mutation. I call this condition "Super Tangerine". Others have labeled this same mutation as "hyglo" or "hybino". The A.P.T.O.R. hatches with very little, if any pattern, whereas the Super Tangerine hatch with a well-defined pattern of tangerine and light gray and within the first 10 months of age vigorous pigment expansion and migration makes for a very nice gecko - sometimes appearing almost patternless themselves.

    Raptors

    Also in March 2004 the long-awaited gene for all ruby-red eyes emerged in the new A.P.T.O.R. morph. The exciting R.A.P.T.O.R. is an A.P.T.O.R. expressing the gene for all ruby-red eyes. R.A.P.T.O.R.S. hatch with and retain totally red eyes throughout their lives. The R.A.P.T.O.R. is the albino expression of the new ECLIPSE mutation, pictured below.

    Both the Eclipse and the R.A.P.T.O.R. also have a new eye mutation whereby half a given eye is totally uniform in color and the other half of the same eye is regularly pigmented (see photo below). This condition has been named "SNAKE EYES". Some individuals have one eye totally uniform in color and one snake-eye. Over 50 snake-eyes have been hatched from Eclipse and R.A.P.T.O.R. breedings.

    Perhaps we are dealing with two separate recessive genes for eye pigmentation, but this will have to be sorted out over the next few years through test breedings conducted by the people who acquire these new mutations. It is not known at this time if R.A.P.T.O.R. times R.A.P.T.O.R. results in 100% pure R.A.P.T.O.R.s or if you get 50% R.A.P.T.O.R.s and 50% snake-eyed R.A.P.T.O.R.s."

    R.O.U.S.- Rodent of unusual size. Very rare, but you want to know what you're dealing with BEFORE you meet one. I don't know of any morphs, but I think they came from a dumbo rat/ Rottweiler project back in the eighties...
