After several seasons of crossing our Hot Geckos line of tangerine leopard geckos into the rainwater (aka Las Vegas) line of albinos, we produced in 2006 a handful of individuals that stood out. They were the albino equivalent of that small percent of exceptional examples you get when line-breeding for deep orange. Like many nonalbino tangerines, firewater clutches usually consist of one banded animal with distinct head patterning and one baldy with a solid body color. As adults, firewaters range from solid orange with varying amounts of carrot tail to orange and blue-lavender. We’ve tried all breeding combinations, but breeding het to het still produces the most intensely colored offspring, Dan and Roxanne Lubinsky, Hot Geckos Inc.
