Hi all,

can someone tell me the difference between a "blazing" blizzard leopard gecko and a blizzard leopard gecko? I have one of each here and they both look the same to me?

A Blazing Blizzard is homozygous albino in addition to being homozygous blizzard.

This OFTEN manifests as a bright pinky-white gecko that doesn't darken in colour when the temperatures change (though you can get the yellow pigment on them too).

The most reliable way to tell is by the eyes, though.

Greyish eyes with black pupils = Normal Blizzard, no matter how bright.
Pinkish, reddish or TAN eyes - albino eyes = Blazing Blizzard.

Not all blazing blizzards will have RED eyes - that's entirely dependent on what kind of albino they're homozygous for, and most Tremper albino Blazings will have tan-coloured eyes.

The gecko in my avatar is a blazing blizzard.

Oh ok, So my blizzard does go really dark, if this new one doesnt do that then its probably a Blazing. And I need someone who isnt colour blind (like me) to have a good look at the eyes - thanks.
