Default Leopard Gecko Morph?

Hi,

new to the site so have no idea if this will work though have followed the sticky about photos.

I have a two year old Leopard gecko that I was bought about a year ago. Now I'm looking at getting a couple of females due to having a spare viv and hopefully breeding them.

Before I buy the females just wondered if my male leo is a specific morph or not? And if so which morph of females should be bought?

Thanks for any help.

....another Leeds person...Great. Welcome to RFUK first. He is a gorgoeus leo. Id say he was a Hypo as he has a few spots on his back...if he had no spots there he would be classed as a super hypo. As for breeding id breed him with a tremper albino so then you would have the possability of breeding Hybinos then possibly sunglows. Love the second pic...looks very cheeky. x

Thanks ^_^

So glad it's not just me that thinks he's gorgeous!

Those spots come and go, don't know if that's odd?

I know about sunglows but what's a tremper albino and a hybino?

And yeah he does cheeky very well, he's such a poser!

I think i get ya with the spots coming and going...like when hes coming to to a shed they fade? Our hypo is the same his spots start going purple then grey.....
A tremper albino is just one of the albino strains...very pretty and cheap. They were discovered/bred by Ron Tremper...hence the name. Ill try find some pics for you if you like?
A hybino is the morph of gecko just before sunglow...very pretty looking. x

Yeah, he looks almost bruised sometimes about a week before shedding. How often do your adult leo's shed? as he's just started shedding every two weeks whilst before it was a lot less frequent. Though we have just moved house so maybe it's a stress thing.

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.

Hi,

Wow he/she is really cute, such big eyes!

Don't know much about fat tailed geckos but i guess they're similar to leo's, here's some general advice til someone more knowledgable comes along.

Make sure his/her food is the right size for him/her so it can be digested properly. Maintain viv at correct temps for a fat tail and don't handle until the lizard is settled in the new environment.

You might get more responses if you post your own thread as people will be looking at leo morphs in this one.

Hope that helps xXx

Hi and welcome Stuart! Must say he is a lovely looking fella. Not too sure on morph but looks to be a pretty normal. Best tips i can give you is leave him to settle in. Sometimes they can take up to 2 weeks to eat...this is perfectly norma;. They pretty much have the same rewquirements as leopard geckos exept they need Humidity.
Here is a great care sheet for them...
