    Default Could someone advise me if what I have is a morph or something else?

    Hey guys!

    I recently got this gecko from a breeder - both eyelids look like this, the gecko can see and is ready for breeding. Both parents had the same eyelids and the other geckos he got from breeding them were all like that. Could anyone advise me if this is actually a morph? And if so - what kind of morph is it?

    looks like a poor breeding candidate. If all the hatchlings from the pairing have this one mutation, there could be others that are not as visible or harmless. Also, I would consider this and the parents that resulted in this as "pet only" and not pursue them as breeders.

    The gecko is some sorta morph but the eye issue is not a morph, probably due to heavy inbreeding or poor incubation. Geckos with defects should be kept as pets only and not bred.

    This leo is totally unacceptable for breeding! Please keep this leo as "pet only".

    I hope the breeder did not sell it to you for anything more than a pet.

    Thanks for the replies! Much appreciated. I have been keeping a leopard gecko for a few years and bought this girl since she seemed a bit unhappy about her surroundings - she was being kept with other geckos and they were bullying her. She was pregnant too but the baby hatched without this eye thing.
    I bought a male gecko since then - would you fellas mind giving me a heads up whether my two males are morphs? The spotted one has been with me for years and the other one I just got yesterday, because I liked his looks. I realized he's kinda skinny right now but he's eating good so I'll be able to get get him healthy.

    As for the female, I'll just take care of her and won't breed her. Cheers!

    The first one is a hypo and the second one I can't tell about unless you take a picture of the whole gecko from above.

    I've always thought it's just a normal but I'm no morph expert

    I hope that suffices!

    I still can't see the pattern on the tail. It could be some kind of stripe, but I can't tell for sure. Try to include the tail in the picture.
