Bandit is a polygenic trait.

Ron Tremper: “The rich and lasting black color trait was a random mutation that has been bred here since 1995. For 12 years we selectively bred for reduced head spots resulting in individuals that have 3-4 head markings. This morph has the richest concentration of black pigment as adults than any other morph, which is eye-catching when contrasted with the cream body color. They come in Jungle and Striped patterns. The Bandit pattern is a polygenic trait so the best examples need to be bred to each other, and back to the parents, to maintain the desired results. Bold Bandits are geckos from Bandit parents but lack the noseband.” [1]

Bandit morphs usually have fewer spots on their heads in favor of a few bold stripes or markings between their nose and eyes, resembling a bandit’s mask [2]

Proven Lines
