    Default What Morph is this? Pretty easy determination on these two love birds!

    That is my Male - Mr Smith, tail of female seen barely.


    My Female - Mrs Smith


    Again my Male

    Do these two appear to be ready and a good breeding pair?

    Also I dont see a lot of topics on types of food that people give their Leo's, was wondering if anyone could let me know if ONLY crickets, large calcium coated ones are acceptable source of food? They never get mealworms or anything different. Occasionally a Hornworm for a treat every few months but other than that, just crickets.
    Thanks in advance!

    There's been lots of info posted about feeding crickets, or other prey. Check the food and feeding subforum. http://www.geckosunlimited.com/commu...eding-issues-/

    Not particularly to the question I have asked, but thanks for directing me to the correct source.
    Maybe I am just a rookie to this forum and unable to navigate to a thread that deals with strict dieting of only one insect for the entire duration of a Leo's life...

    The Smiths:
    They are both super hypo tangerine carrot tails (barely) and in addition, Mrs. Smith, who seems to have not head spots would be called "baldy".

    In general people advocate feeding leopard geckos a variety of feeders. That said, there are people who only feed one type and geckos that only eat one thing and everyone seems to do fairly well

    i dont think they are carrot tails.
    a carrot tail is when a gecko has a tail that is 15% or more orange, like a bright orange. Carrot Tail - Leopard Gecko Wiki

    Thanks a million, they are most def not carrot tails now that ive inspected yet again. They are most definitely Super Hypo, minimal spots, 4 max. Also the female is or almost is a baldy.
    Thanks guys. This information is proving useful.
    I hope these two make beauty babies, would they be the same "Super Hypo" most likely? Im completely new to breeding and cannot stop soaking up information about this.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi ~

    Welcome aboard!

    Well fed crickets make a good diet for leopard geckos, with occasional variety on the side. Here's exactly how I do it: Cricket Guidelines
    "If you can hear crickets, it's still summer." ;)

    "May the peace that
    You find at the beach
    Follow you home"

    Click: Leo Care Sheet's Table of Contents

    ===> No plain calcium, calcium with D3, or multivitamins inside an enclosure <===

    Oedura castelnaui ~ Lepidodactylus lugubris ~ Phelsuma barbouri ~ Ptychozoon kuhli ~ Cyrtodactylus peguensis zebraicus ~ Phyllurus platurus ~ Eublepharis macularius ~ Correlophus ciliatus ~ (L kimhowelli) ~ (P tigrinus) ~ (P klemmeri) ~ (H garnotii)
