LET'S PLAY A GAME. Can you tell apart the 3 albino strains just by their eyes?
Go ahead, take a whack at it. Which are Tremper, which are Rainwater, and which are Bell?
Grab a piece of paper, write down your guesses. Afterwards, scroll down and continue.
Did you make a good guess?
Here are the answers:
That was pretty fun! However - when it comes to the gene pool, there is no place for playing games.
Albino strains cannot be distinguished visibly. It literally is only a guessing game! Their eyes (color, veining, etc) are influenced heavily by phenotype. All 3 strains can look identical, and geckos within the same strain can also look vastly different. That is why reliable genetic information, and lineage, is necessary to have!
Always research a breeder thoroughly before you purchase a gecko, and never try to guess at a gecko's genotype without knowing its full background. Odds are - you could be very wrong!
