If you had some pics that's be great. I didn't know if he was a tangerine/carrot tail as he has some orange down his tail that is quite bright.

Our adult shed around once a month now. Ity could be the move thats stressed him so the shedding should calm down lol. He wouldnt be classed as a carrot tail as theres not enough orange..same as ours...Check this thread though for carrot tails...some stunners..

Thanks ^_^

Is there anywhere on this site with a basic intro to leo morphs? Could do with a brief description of the morphs and their characteristics as my leo book isn't very clear and it'll save me annoying people by asking hundreds of questions.

xXx

That site is our rescues and help site. It was set up by Gothgirl on here and theres a few rehomers around the country. We take in any reptiles in any condition and help them get well again. I mailny specialise in MBD (Metabolic Bone Disease). So far at the our rescue we have 2 leos with MBD, 3 leo partially sighted leos...2 with eye deformaties, a chinese water dragon with MBD and a bosc monitor with MBD, gout, thermal burns and an agression problem. Theres many more rehomers with reptiles with various problems too.

Hypo is more yellow colour...hypo tangerine is more orange..both mine and the ops geckos are Hypo Tangerines . The carrot tail goes by how much carrot is in the tail...i think its something like more then 20% is classed as a carrot tail...someone correct me im im way off though lol. x

Hypo just means reduced spots, hypo tangerine is reduced spots, but the gecko is showing more *tangerine* colouring than a normal yellow animal

Carrot tail, depending on who tou ask varies, but imo the tail should be atleast 15-20% orange, BEFORE any black spots/markings
