OK so not really secrets but I want to see your darkest geckos, I'm talking ones with little to no color. Not necessarily high white, I just know I have seen a few that have so much of the more natural pattern they have little to no additional color. I want to see those if you have them!

Ugh man. I had a GT years ago who went through a phase where he was completely black. He ended up rather dark green as an adult, but there was a period where he was really black. Here is one of mine:

Down the road, I'd really like to pair these two and see if they produce similarly black/white offspring.

My man, Onyx (PI). He NEVER fires up like this anymore, now he's just a chill sage green and apricot, but back when he was a feisty newer man in the house he could get very dark indeed, hence the name. He just hatched a kid who has very dark potential who will be available if you're looking!

Second pic was taken by Jon Boone, who I originally purchased from.

Very nice! You know I love that combination of orange/red highlights with a dark base!

This is mine. You may have seen it few times on FB groups. It's a GT animal of unknown lineage. 3 years old, unfortunately I had no babies from him yet. The best troeger I paired with him this year made only bad eggs.... will se next year

I got this sexy GT proven male from Angie T. His last clutch he sired a melanistic baby. I am extremely hopeful and will pair him with my dark girl, Pocket, in 2021.

^ Seeing this thread made me think of that one @Angie_MamaT hatched out. I would love to see progress pics as it ages.

I would love to see an all black *adult* chahoua some day.

Soooo....
I have the female clutchmate to the all black baby pictured above, and their daddy. I was going to pair him with my dark girl Pocket in 2021. All black is a goal here also... now I have some carriers of the genetics 😊😊
