Default U. sikorae, some clarifications on colour/pattern varieties

Ok, I'm in the middle of doing some research into U. sikorae as I'm hoping to go to Hamm in September and come home with some of these.
I just want some form of explanation on their variety.
Is it certain lines which come with different colours? Locales? Morphs? or just luck of the draw?

I love the ones who have quite a lot of white (although I have a feeling this is mostly sleeping colours) but if it's not I'm guessing those are going to be the more expensive ones?

If anyone can give me some tips on where to look for an explanation or can clear some stuff up for me that'd be great
(Open to recommended EU breeders too )

Regards
Chris

Thanks, I've seen them vary so much but wasn't sure if it's them firing up/down etc.
Do you know if the colours are genetic at all? White parents making white offspring or completely unknown?

I think I'll go to Hamm then and look for them so I can pick a colour/pattern i like instead of reserving and potentionally being disappointed unless I can find a reputable breeder

When I looked at the hamm classifieds recently I think they were 250-350 euros a pair but seems too cheap to me (not that I would complain)
I think they're around £400 each over here.

I would be concerned about them at that price Chris, we paid that price for a single one. I think if you are wanting them you should look for a good breeder, the price may be higher, but you know they are good feeders etc

I honestly thought the same but there was quite a few adverts like it so just thought it was just really good prices. Seems too good to be true is the case
I don't mind paying more to be honest, I just need some people to recommend me some breeders really. Searching for geckos abroad when you have no clue of any reputable breeders is very intimidating.
