Trying to ID the morphs of these two leos. Have been out of the hobby for 15 years and picked them up.
The first one is a male i have oictures of his parents. I believe he is a Super Hypo Baldy carrot tail?
The second i also have pictures of her parents they are from the same breeder here in PR.
Welcome to the forum! You have some cuties there!
The first is a super hypo baldy. The super hypo refers to the lack of spots on the body and the baldy refers to the lack of spots on the head. I wouldn’t call him carrot tail because there is only a little bit of orange on the tail.
The second I would call a bold bandit. Both refer to the markings on the body. Bold refers to the dark spots on his body and bandit refers to the few, large markings on the head.
That second baby could use some calcium vitamin mixture. You can just get a small cap from a soda clean it. Then get a reptile mix of calcium and vitamins in there. Will do wonders. Only bringing up because leopard gecks seem to store some calsium under there armpits and that little one looks like she is on straight Empty. Its too easy and helps keep MB from settling in. Which they might have a small case of already but yeah vitamin and calcium powder in the small lid and dusted on food they will be right as rain in probably less then a month.
I just acquired them 2 days ago. This morning I went out and bought calcium powder I noticed it the minute I opened the container to them. I appreciate the feed back!
Thank you it feels awesome to get back into the herp field. We’ve been raising dogs and saltwater fish and corals the last 10 years. But I’ve kept herps since I was 3 or 4. And I sold of my collection in college of over 80 animals, it was a hard couple months to watch everything go. Now I have kids 3-11 and have free time to start back up. Only issue is we are VERY LIMITED, in what we can aquire here on the island. Leopard Geckos can not be imported unfortunately so the trade is very underground.
Is this a normal eye pattern?
Yes, that’s the typical pattern you will see with leopard gecko eyes unless they have an ocular-affecting morph (like eclipse).
Everyone is awesome thank you!
I just wanted to chime in and agree that both geckos are in very rough shape, nutritionally. Do NOT breed either of them, they both have very evident secondary hyperparathyroidism (MBD). With prompt treatment, though they should both recover well enough to live comfortably as pets in modified housing.
Since it’s been 15 years since you were in the hobby, I strongly recommend vet visits for both of them. The vet can help explain what exactly is wrong, what is normal and what is not, and what to watch for to see if treatment is helping or not.
Hi ,can you help me identify the morph of one of my gecko please ?
You will need to start a new thread of your own. Also you need to post a picture.
