About

Base pattern of the gecko, generally a black or dark brown pigmentation, which changes based upon being fired up or down. When fired up, this is when the maximum amount of pigment is exhibited. When fired down, the pigment expressing cells are inactive and are either greatly muted or not visible. We have two main basic base pattern categories: Striped and Reticulated. From there, we have other forms that are also important to note individually: Super Stripe, Banded, Mosaic and Mottled. [1]

Appearance

Head

The head is unaffected by this trait.

Body

There is usually a dorsal stripe that runs down the length of an original tail, though some examples are more bold than others. The mid dorsal stripe running the length of the body may be thickened, but is not the qualifier for super stripe as some might suggest. [2]

Belly

The belly is unaffected by this trait.

Tail

Super Stripe Gargoyle Geckos will have stripes down the tail.

Controversy

There is no established description on super stripes, but most believe that the body should have a minimum of four to six sets of pattern stripes. [3]
