THE URBAN GECKO

oreo

The Oreo emerges from its eggs as a black and white baby and then as the morph matures they assume a similar coloration to that of an Oreo cookie.

We acquire the original Oreo as a wild-caught male direct from West Africa in 2006 and in 2008 we proved the trait to be recessive. The Oreo is a type of axanthic, which is the name given to a genetic trait that dramatically reduces or inhibits the production of red and yellow pigment. Therefore the morph does not exhibit the same brown and yellow tones seen in a normal or wildtype Fat-Tailed Gecko.

The combinations are endless and the sky is the limit for this very new and exciting mutation. The Oreo is known only to exist within The Urban Gecko collection so this exclusive project is very special to us.
