The Mack Snow Leopard Gecko morph is a beautiful, memorable color variant first discovered in 2004 by John and Amy Mack from Reptiles by Mack. The name comes from their white-ish base color, speckled with black dots. They tend to have yellow tones, though. In contrast, the Super Snow morph often features a stronger, purer white, and often more, smaller black dots.
Traits of the Mack Snow Leopard Gecko
Mack Snows have a few differences to regular Leopard Geckos. They are born with white bands instead of yellow bands, and are predominantly white. However, over time, the white fades out and yellows or other colors become visible.
However, when Mack Snows are bred together, a Super Snow may be borne (with a roughly 25% chance). These Super Snow Leopard Geckos are born pinkish or greyish, but become completely white as they grow older. They have the same black dotted markings, but retain their white appearance as they age.
History of the Mack Snow Leopard Gecko
After first being discovered in 2004 at Reptiles by Mack, this morph was soon bred all over the world. It can also be combined with other traits, producing variants like the Mack Snow Blizzard Leopard Gecko, Ron Tremper’s “Super RAPTOR” (crossing a Mack Snow and a RAPTOR Leopard Gecko), Mack Snow Enigmas, or Super Snow Bells (bred with Bell Albinos).
