    Exclamation What morph is this girl.


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello everyone, I recently got a new leopard gecko from a local pet shop (one that I trust). And they had her labeled as high colored, but she looks different than most high colors Iíve seen, so I was wondering if anyone could help me identify what she is? Iíll link a photo to this post.

    Not sure the age. I just got her today and sheís very skittish. Iíd say sheís about 4 inches or so. Iíve had what I believed was a common before and he was just Black and Tan. She has a lot more of a unique pattern than I typically see, so I thought she was something different.

    It's a very small picture so it's kind of hard to see. It looks like a gecko that is going to lose all its body spots when it matures, in which case you can say that it's a super hypo. If it gets really orange (I don't see that so far in the picture, but, as I said, it's small) you could call it a tangerine as well.

    I hope this is a better photo. So does that mean those horizontal kinda stripes she has will fade as she grows?

    It looks exactly how my high yellow hatchling looked a few weeks ago. Im surprised a pet shop is selling geckos so young. Mine is just over a month and a half old and bigger than that. No way i will be selling any of mine until they reach around 3 months old.

    This is the hatchling im talking about.

    This is when it first hatched. Dark stripes and white band around its head.

    This is it at just over a month and a half. The stripes have broken out into spots

    If i was buying a gecko i think id be worried about buying one so young. Normally you keep them around 6-8 weeks before letting them go.

    I’ve seen her there for a few weeks before getting her, maybe about a month, she wasn’t available for sale for a bit then a week or two she got listed for sale. I didn’t think she was that young. But I don’t know much about telling their age and never thought to ask at the pet store.

    Well as long as you know what youre doing it will be fine. I just think some pet shop owners/breeders need to take more responsibility at times. So you would guess it is about a month old? Seems quite small to me.
