    Default Leopard Gecko, two different eyes?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    My husband and I are not new to the reptile world, I have been in it since I was 13 and we've had reptiles ever since we were married. However, this is the first time I have had a lizard with two different eyes. One eye is completely black and the other is normal with the "cat-eye" look. We didn't notice this until after we brought the guy home because he wouldn't sit very still at the pet store and even bit us, not that that caused us not to get him clearly, lol. He is still young, but recently his eye (the black one) has started to grow larger than the other one. He is also constantly licking this eye but it is not swollen shut, he can still keep it open. Should I be concerned that he has two different colored eyes and any idea if this may be the cause of one eye being larger than the other?
    Thanks in advance for any help!!

    Hi ~

    A warm welcome to Geckos Unlimited!

    I would be concerned if the black eye is growing larger than the other one. I'm wondering whether he can see out of each eye and whether the black eye is an abnormality.

    Can you bring this to the attention of the pet store?

    How about sharing pictures?

    I've heard and seen leos where i'm at, having 2 different eye morph or colors and seems that is just a normal genetic mutation.

    However, should the eye be swollen, irritated or look 'sunken' in a way then you should see a vet..

    close-up eye picw will help a lot
