Paradox Grandis are an enigma. Just when you think you understand the genetics, something pops up to shake things up. We have been seeing some incredible transformations of Paradox bloodlines. Some are visible at hatch. Some take months or even years to show up. We currently have 30 bloodlines breeding of 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and starting this year 4th generation mated pairs. We have them separated into two main categories at this time. Those that show blue or blue/violet color on the head at hatch, and those who don’t. Those who don’t can show a faint blue hue to the scales or (ironically for an axanthic bloodline) a yellowish green in contrast to a normal green and red grandis hatchling.
Surprisingly, the geckos that change incredible colors that rock our world are very often those that hatch looking pretty plain. When you see that first dot of blue or purple color starting on the body excitement starts building. The color spreads and changes in ways individual to each gecko. Some stay patchy. Some change completely. And then some change colors again.
We have priced our non-visual at hatch paradox lower to encourage those of you out there with a sense of adventure to take the plunge and enjoy watching the transformation over time into something striking and unique. All it takes is a leap of faith. What colors will you find? Are you ready to take a leap of faith?
