Line Bred Snow

Line Bred Snows are Leopard Geckos who have been Line Bred to achieve a Leopard Gecko which is white and black. Currently there are 3 Lines of Line bred Snows. Line Bred Snows are often graded on a A-C scale; A being a pure white and black gecko and B-C being a gecko which shows some yellow pigments.

When breeding two Line Bred Snows together, you will not get Super Snows. This clearly sets them genetically apart from the mack Snow gene which is a simple co-dom mutation. If you were to breed a Mack Snow to a Line Bred Snow, there is a 6.25% chance Super Snows will be hatched. Crossing Mack Snows to Line bred Snows however is seen critically in the gecko scene and should be avoided since the offspring will be "mixed" and are impossible to tell apart.

The oldest Line Bred Snow Line was created by Albey of Albey's "Too Cool" Reptiles. The other 2 lines are Gem Snows and TUG Snows. Every line has its own individual characteristics in colour potential and pattern.

Mike and Jessica Butler of Fallen Angel's Geckos have bred Albey's Line Bred Snow with the Enigma and RAPTOR genes, a project they worked on from 2010-2014. Gem and TUG Snows are more common and bred by several sources in US and Europe.
