LIL Monsters Breeders

A little about our breeders

Pride_03-720p

We've hand-selected our collection since 2007 and chosen only animals with A quality structure and secondly selecting for pattern, color, and unique traits. Our breeders come from all over the US and from Canadian lines that were selectively bred from originally imported animals acquired from Allen and Philippe.  Our Bloodlines have been developed from Canadian and U.S crossed stocked, we continue to develop on individual lines that can be outcrossed and crossed back to strengthen the trait we are developing while not inbreeding. We keep a pure Canadian line going so we can continue to use it to add back to our own crossed lines. Since we have developed our own lines in-house we don’t need to worry about breeding US animals as our collection has largely been outcrossed.

Our strategy for breeding is to document and unravel the genetic traits within the crested gecko by genotyping our collection. This helps in predicting the odds for breeding instead of hoping animals look like the grandparents or parents. We are not a fan of “Banking on the chance” but rather betting on the odds. With this idea, we are in the process of working with other breeders in releasing this information to help establish a baseline for traits and their inheritance.

We have a unique collection of animals with varying patterns and morphs. When we pair we aim for a variety of morphs and unique combo morphs that show interesting and often wild patterns and color. We have a strong understanding of genetics and use that to define traits and create morphs and new phenotypes that are difficult to find.

Below you will see a list of our breeders, their morph, or combo morph, and identifiable traits with their inheritance. We actively update these so if you don't see it fully filled in it's because we are still breeding the traits out or adding them to the site.

If you want to learn more about Crested Genetics have a look at our Foundation Genetics page.

Have an ID?

If you have an ID you can find your crestie's parents here. Our IDs look something like this (LY20_0102_UA). The 1st letter is the initial of the male's name and 2nd is the initial of the first letter in the female's name. In the example above, LY=Laxus X Yuki. It is then followed by the breeding season, having a look at the breeding seasons page will show you exactly which 2 letters and number combo refer to which breeders.

So here's the break down:

  • LY = Laxus X Yuki
  • 20 = The breeding season
  • 0102 = Hatch-Date 01/02, January 2nd in the case.
  • U/M/F = The sex of the animal, Unsexed, Male, or Female respectively.
  • A/B = Clutch mates, A is the first one out of the egg, B is the second.
  • Finally, if your ID ends in -##g then that's the weight in grams.

**NOTE** For adults with the same first letter in their name visit our Breeding Seasons Page to see exactly what we bred for your particular ID.

If you can get stock from these lines they are an excellent investment for new blood outside the US. We have separate sections in our collection to preserve this line with Canadian stock that was early on in the game. We try to keep US stock separate if we can.
