A huge part of ethical breeding is breeding animals with a goal in mind, usually as a part of a wider project. Breeding with a purpose ensures that all geckos produced are improving the quality of the captive bred population while also meeting and exceeding market needs.
At Leopard Geckos London we have a few projects currently running, all of which we are extremely passionate about. We are always happy to discuss our projects over Instagram, TikTok or email for those wanting more information.
High quality tangerine crosses
Our Ignis project was founded by Ignis (pictured), a Blood Emerine Tangerine who we imported in 2021. With his rusty tones and headstamp reminiscent of Eublepharis angramainyu as soon as we saw him, we knew he would found a tangerine project with us.
The purpose of our Ignis Project is to produce high quality patterned tangerine crosses with 'angramainyu' headstamps using some of the best tangerine lines available to us (as of 2022 we have utilised Blood, Emerine, Green & Tangerine, and Electric).
BLACK NIGHT PROJECT
Melanistic Leopard Geckos
We have a 1.2 group (1 male 2 females) of black nights who we will be pairing in 2023. They will be used to create dark animals for use in other projects.
Tangerines utilising the uncommon Vermillon gene
This fantastic dominant gene originally discovered by JB Reptiles has been at the heart of Leopard Geckos London since the beginning, with our first ever breeding animal purchased being a Glow Madness Pos Vermillon. Although our first male, Glowworm, proved not to be Vermillon, his offspring by another Glow Madness Tremper Vermillon certainly are. We are hoping to improve the stock of Vermillons in the UK by pairing into animals from our Ignis project to create high quality tangerine Vermillons.
Distinctive Clown x Greenline x Green & Tangerine Animals
This project started with a very distinctive looking gecko we produced out of our Ignis Project, with splodges reminiscent of geckos of Greenline lineage.
Soon enough we formed our Greenhorn project which aims to accentuate the traits on Lava Lamp (Blood Emerine Green & Tangerine, pictured) which kicks off in 2023.
Bold Stripes and Bold Stripe Trempers
We have a few ways we can take this projects and we're still deciding! In 2021 we acquired Spitfire (Bold Stripe Tremper Pos Het Eclipse), and in 2022 we collaborated with the wonderful folks at Dinomite Reptiles to produce a variety of Bold Stripe Trempers and Bold Stripe Ghost Trempers.
We are still considering whether we should add Mack Snow, Ghost, Vermillion or even all three to this project.
E. ANGRAMAINYU ILAM PROJECT
The Giants of the Eublepharis Genus
When we saw Ruishine, a juvenile Eublepharis angramainyu ilam male for sale in 2020 we just had to have him. It's been a dream to work with this species and we are so excited to increase the CB population of them in the UK.
First offspring for these should be here in 2024.
