    Lightbulb Adopted this 2yr old girl! I'd like help with the morp please!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Ok so I'm new morphs, and doing a little research online, I know she is at least a "carrot tail" since 15%+ of the tail must have orange. Now, I don't think the picture does much justice as her colors are a little bit more vivid than what is shown. She also has the "outline" of three stripes (Where the spots are gone on her torso) if I look close enough in proper light. Fii also has lavender "stripes" along her tail and a tiny bit where her spots are (along her back.) Anyways, here she is!

    Edit:After looking through both wikias located in the "What morph is my leopard gecko??" sticky thread, I have come to three conclusions; Tangerine Carrot Tail (All patterns shown are weird, though), Hypo Tangerine Carrot Tail (Which I doubt since she has more than 10 spots), OR she's a Paradox. She looks almost exactly like a htct, except with more spots. Even the design is similar. That's why I think she might be a paradox. Any disagreements/agreements, or think she's something else?

    Ok, after fixing up her terrarium a bit, here are some better pictures of Fii. I don't know why but the artificial moss carpet makes her look a little yellow.

    Nice looking gecko! She's kind of marginally a hypo tangerine carrot tail. As you note, she has too many spots to really be a hypo. The carrot tail is actually supposed to cover 30%+ of the tail. Her tail does have a good amount of carrot, but there are black spots intermixed. I guess I'd go with "high orange" (lots of orange, but still too many spots to be a hypo) carrot tail, though whether everyone would call her a carrot tail is unclear.

    Thank you~! She does indeed have too many spots for that! As for the carrot tail, each breeder seems to have differences on what they say (I haven't seen anything about it not being a carrot tail with spots), but the orange does cover more than 30%, unless you don't count that the orange "breaks up" here and there.
    After a few days, I noticed that anywhere where her spots are (aside from the tail) there's a green coloration.

    The green coloration is the fading original black with the newer orange overlay.
