    Question What morph am I? And what's wrong with me?

    Blink is a sweet little baby with all red eyes! I am curious about her morph as I have not been able to find a similar looking leopard gecko to compare her to.
    She is a terrible eater and I suspect she has enigma syndrome on a very small degree as she seems to rock back and forth at times and is really bad at hunting. She tends to give up very quickly and loses interest in the worm after hunting it for a few seconds. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhbpnOPdq0M
    She sometimes eats worms out of a bowl but only one or two of them. I've tried crickets, mealworms, superworms, dubia roaches, wax worms, and hornworms. She has eaten a hornworm and will sometimes eat a waxworm. When she does it, it is few and far between. If I had to guess, she eats about 2 worms a week (usually superworms or wax worms.) I've had her for a month now and she has only shed once. Not sure what else to do to get her to eat. She is very skittish, but she does well with my 3 other females. I currently have her by herself to see if she will calm down a bit and be more comfortable eating. My three other girls eat from tongs and can hunt on their own. I want to get Blink eating regularly enough so she can go in with them. Please let me know if you have any advice!

    so i don't know about the eating and things, but the only the thing she resembles at all is a radar leopard gecko, except lighter without the spots and red eyes, it could be like a albino radar, but I don't really know thats just what blink resembles to me. p.s. I am not very good with morphs, I hope someone with a little more experince will answer. good luck!

    but she does well with my 3 other females.

    Hi,

    Housed with 3 other females? If so, I would separate her and house her alone. This will help keep her stress level down, avoid bullying and make monitoring her feces easier. I would take her to a vet along with a fecal sample. The possibilities are many (health related) and sometimes more than just one and so professional help is important.

    Morph: she is an albino, of unknown strain and a stripe (hatched with vertical beige bands as opposed to horizontal). If her eyes are solid red she is also an eclipse. The "Radar" mentioned above is a Bell albino eclipse, but there's no way to know whether or not she's a Bell or a Tremper (my money's on Tremper but no way to be sure).

    Feeding: some of them are just inept, I don't know why. Here are 2 articles I wrote about feeding problems and what to do:
