Description

A morph refers to an animal’s pattern and colour and can also refer to the structure of the body. Of the Rhacodactylus family the Crested gecko is probably the best known for its colours and patterns but others of the Rhacodactylus family also have different morphs.


The crested gecko is a species which is being bred to be a designer gecko which means that people are trying to produce new colours and patterns all of the time. Most crested geckos have white or pale fringes along the backs of their legs, they also have paler tails often giving the impression of bird poo on the tail which is no doubt for camouflage in the wild; also some cresteds have pale or even white edges to their bottom jaws. Crested geckos can change colour depending on time of day, temperature and moods but they can only go lighter or darker shades of the base colours. When a gecko is at its brightest it is said to be ‘fired up’.
