"Tangelo" is a faffy way of saying "Tangerine Albino". This means it carries two copies of the recessive Tremper Albino gene. It also means it's been selectively bred for Tangerine colouring. Until Tremper proves that his tangerine "morph" is a single gene, I'm not going to make any predictions on anything other than selectively bred tangerine.

A super hypo will quite often show enhanced tangerine colouring, and has two copies of the codominant Hypo gene to make it a Super Hypo.

I would expect a Superhypo X Tangelo to produce

100% tangerine-looking geckos with reduced spotting (AKA hypo) and het for albino.

Can you see how I got there?
