Default Best leopard gecko morph

A bit of a strange question but I wondered which morphs are the rarest as I have found someone who is selling up all their current stock. They have over 60 geckos of all different types. I am currently breeding and wondered which ones are rarest for breeding purposes.

examples of geckos for sale-

Aptor snake eye
eclipse het albino
albino jungle
super hypos
jungles

Why don't you just pick the one you think looks best?

Unless you're getting it solely to make money breeding it, in which case I have no idea.

you can put togeather two rare ones and if there the wrong match end up with normals, If your thinking of making money, you wont, if there was money to be made why is an experanced breeder selling all his stock, this year and for a go od while prices are going to be low, so low a breeder will do well to cover costs, I doubt I will.

If your going to buy, buy them becase you like them, or if you want to breeed "the best gecko ever" do some homework

i am going to pick the ones I like. I was just curious as my local pet shop will purchase rare babies more than normals. I know I wont make any money and will probably be lucky to break even. I was just curious as I cant make up my mind which I prefer. LOL! They are all so gorgeous

what morphs have you got now if any,

look at whats availible

deciede how many you can afford to keep in food and vet bills

deciede on how many you can house, femals dont allways get on, males must NOT be put togeather, IMHO males should not be with femals other than at breeding, you must allow for signle houseing at first to see whos eating and whos not etc

Then pick morphs that will go togearther, one type of albino as theres three differant types

I'd stick to hybinos T, shtct, T albionos, macksnow/supersnow. these will allways sell on, not be too expensive to buy, and should not show any funny traits

So if I were starting again I pick a
Tremper hybino male
Shtct female
Tremper albino female
Macksnow/supersnow female

A nice stripe or reverse stripe would be a added bounus

those four/five would be a good starting piont,

If you got more money change the albino strain to Bell from tremper

I`ve got a funny feeling that if anyone is selling over 60 leos - then it`s got to be someone that we all know know and love, and obviously someone who does/did quite a bt of business.

Ok I'll start the questioning, you shine the light

"What dialect" would in your opinion the seller use?
