Question Correct definition of a sunglow leopard gecko?

I always thought that a sunglow was a SHTCT albino of any of the 3 strains, but i've seen pictures of suppose sunglows that don't have carrot tails, aren't super hypo just hypo and some without tangerine influence. So what is the correct definition of a sunglow leopard gecko?

Depends what you mean, now or originally.
Really a Hybino and Sunglow are the same thing. Hybino being what Ray Hine labelled his line and Sunglow being TUG's line.

Now though people tend to class anything with patterning (Hypo) a Hybino and a fully patternless (Super Hypo) a Sunglow.
If we had different names for something just because it didn't have carrot tail or tangerine enough things would just get crazier than they are now.

This is my Young lady, and I have been told she is a 'Hybino' 'Sunglow' and 'APTOR'



I actually bought her as a Jungle albino het RAPTOR when she was very young and still in her baby jim jams.

then she'll be an aptor het eclipse. if she comes from raptor lines, and shows all those traits carrying the eclipse gene.

sunglows can look the same but are made up differently, using hypo to reduce pattern, and not line bred patternless reverse stripe.

I thought APTOR too, as she doesn't have the carrott tail that is line bred, she it just a really pretty APTOR, het R

Isn't a RAPTOR a Red eyed Albino Patternless Tremper Orange?
So I'm guessing a APTOR is the same but without the Eclipse gene on view

I would go with APTOR too, like mine, not the line bred traits of a sunglow, but an APTOR het RAPTOR
Like what PigglyWiggly said.
