    An Enigma Leopard gecko is a type of Morph.
    That answers you second Q A morph is a different genetic of a Leopard gecko that changes the color of the Gecko.

    As for mouth rot, I have no clue. Someone will chime in at some point and tell us

    All good questions.

    An enigma is a type of morph and a morph is a combination of genetics that make the leopard geckos appear a certain way. However, this is really boiling it down to brass tacks, as there is much more involved to it than just that, but it will suffice for now.

    Now the enigma morph in leopard geckos is unique in one way. These types of geckos have neurological problems that can be a concern (wobbling, "star gazing", spinning in circles, etc...). However, these geckos can live out full and happy lives with the proper owner. I, in fact, have an enigma morph leopard gecko and he is doing great.

    Mouth rot symptoms include bleeding gums, loss of appetite, blackening of the teeth, swollen mouth, and a cheesy, yellowish buildup between the teeth.

    Oh and I have a male leopard gecko and he seems to miss his food often and try's to jump long distances, is that eye problems?

    That can be a symptom of the Enigma morph as well, but in order to determine that I would need to see a picture of your leopard gecko.

    It could just be a matter of your gecko having poor eyesight, but it could also be because he's an enigma. Or he's just sensitive to light.

    Do you typically try to feed him with a lot of lights on at the time? Try to feed him once with just a little bit of light in the room and see if he does better. He might just be sensitive to the lighting in the room...

    He has a great clean environment he gets fed daily and doesn't squint at all and he shows no irritation of something in his eye.
