New SUPER GIANT Information - an excerpt from my new book

Over the last 3 years I have done additional testing of this genetic, reviewed my original breeding records from 20 years ago, and studied the historical account of this morph that was presented in my 2005 book. Given these findings and the results of others, it is my best judgment, that our famous giant leopard gecko, Moose, and his resulting descendants are the result of a recessive gene. The term ‘Super Giant’ shall still apply based on adult weight, while the term ‘Giant’ no longer applies.

The first Super Giant was a normal non-visual albino that occurred randomly in 1999, a descendant from the large project that resulted in the first Tremper Albinos. This explains why, that when that first Super Giant was bred to a Tremper Albino female from that project, I got Moose, a Super Giant Tremper Albino, which proves that the Tremper Albino female I used was het Super Giant and the Super Giant male was het Tremper. Only geckos expressing this recessive gene may be called Super Giants.

Males are 100 grams or more, with some having reached over 175 grams at the time of this writing. Females are 90 grams or more. Super Giant x Super Giant = 100% Super Giants. Offspring from a Super Giant x Normal breeding would be het for Super Giant. With line-breeding efforts the first 200-gram leopard gecko will likely occur in a few years.

Tests described below by Tony Gamble have shown the Super Giants to be pure macularius and not a hybrid with the species angramainyu.

“I sequenced a nuclear gene and a mitochondrial gene for some pure E. angramainyu, pet trade E. macularius, Tremper Super Giants, and some known E. macularius x E. angramainyu hybrids. The Super Giants came out as identical to the pet trade E. macularius while the E. angramainyu hybrids were easily identified as crosses. The mitochondrial gene only tracks the mothers lineage while the nuclear gene comes from both the mom and dad - the hybrids were clearly heterozygous for the E. angramainyu and E. macularius versions of the gene. “ - Tony Gamble, Ph.D. Marquette University / Leopard Gecko Genome -
