    Default Sectoral heterochromia in leopard geckos?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Idk where this should go, but I was looking at my RAPTOR baby earlier and I noticed that a portion of one iris was grayish. She doesnít seem to have any vision problems (aside from having to close her eyes if her overhead light is on- I stopped using said light early on, and not being able to see a cricket as far away as some of the others). I know sectoral heterochromia exists in mammals and doesnít cause any problems but I was wondering if itís linked to anything in leopard geckos.

    Sectoral heterochromia is where a portion of one eye is a different color than the rest of the eye.

    It's called "snake eyes" and it's part of the expression of the eclipse gene.
