Default What does CB12 mean?

Ok, newb question here., although I don't class myself as a newb totally but hey we have to lean somewhere.

I have had my Leopard Gecko for a few years now and have decided to get a few more in the coming months. I have just set up a new viv and plan on doing up the old one for the new arrivals.

At some point I may decide to breed them, but this will only be after LOTS of research.

Which brings me to my question.

I see a lot of people on here talking about different morphs and lines of geckos (as well as other reptiles) and mentioning "CB12" and such.

I don't know a lot about genetics yet, I'm still doing my plimanary research so could someone please tell me what the CB stuff is all about?

I feel like the only one who doesn't get the popular cult reference at the party.

When you say generation, so you mean as in the 12th generation of that captive bread line? Or the year of its hatching?

Cool, thanks for the wisdom guys. Makes perfect since now you have let me in on it. I feel a bit silly not to have worked that one out myself, but I'll get over that.

At least I have learnt my one new thing for today, anything on top of that now will be a bonus.

Keep a look out for WC (Wild caught) and CF (Captive farmed) too, useful knowing all of it for when you're looking to buy anything

Ok, wild caught is self explanatory I think, but what's the difference between captive bread and captive farmed?
