    Question Leopard geckos red eyes are now black?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi, so I got a blizzard leopard gecko a few months ago and their eyes were bright red and they had their eyes closed because they were sensitive to light.

    Well her eyes are no longer sensitive to light and they’re pitch black, like eclipse eyes.

    Does anyone know why this happened?

    Thanks!

    I assume this is an albino as well. Sometimes the red eyes in albinos doesn't look red. You can shine a flashlight behind the eyes (so the light reflects off the eyes from behind) and will likely see that they're still red. I've heard that some snake eyed geckos (another manifestation of the eclipse gene) can lose the snake eye look as they mature, but they're still eclipses.
