thats totally rubbish lol..no funky mixed looking gecko :(
Nope - but then, if we'd said "Tremper albino" and "Blizzard" you wouldn't have expected funky results in the first generation, would you?

Just because "Tremper", "Bell" and "Rainwater" all end in "Albino" doesn't mean they're the same gene - they're all as different to each other as Tremper Albino is to Blizzard.

Now, in the second generation, you'd expect to get 1/16 Rainwater Tremper Albinos ... but the only way to prove that's what you had is by breeding trials. They probably wouldn't look significantly different to the other albinos in the clutches; you'd probably have to breeding trial them ALL out to know what you had.
