    Question Raptor Eyes


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I was looking at my female tremper eyes to compare to some new albinos I picked up and realized they dont dilate down. Possible raptor eyes?

    Also, could you help me with determining the morph of the other leo? I was thinking tremper but the unfinished first stripe has me thinking otherwise. And the high amount of orange she has.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm not sure about tremper eyes, however, I have an eclipse that has one solid black eye and eye normal eye. At first, I didn't know about the eclipse eyes and I thought that she had a problem with her eye. After a bit of research, I found out about the eclipse morph and saw that she had similar eyes.

    I also found that I could shine a flashlight at just the right angle and see that her pupil was normal, but it was the iris (and possibly the entire rest of the eye) that was black in colour.

    In normal lighting, you can see that her left eye is normal and her right eye is completely black:



    However, at night using infrared, you can clearly see her pupil (albeit somewhat dilated because it's quite dark):

    It would only be a raptor eye if it's red.
    I would hold her up to the light and you should be able to see red if it is a raptor eye.
    Here is a pic of one of my Diablo Blanco's red eyes (I know it's not a RAPTOR but you get the idea):

    From a distant her eyes look black but with some light you can see her red pupil.

    I'm thinking it might be the soft light in your house. If you can, take her outside in the sun and see if her eyes dilate normally.

    It's Banded / Jungle Raptor.. (Tremper Jungle Eclipse)
    I think it's not black..
    It's just dark Ruby color..
    In my humble opinion..

    It's an albino of some sort, hard to tell if it's a tremper, rainwater, or bell. In the 3rd picture you can see the albino eyes. Raptors will not have the pupils stretch like that, it'll be all red or partial snake-eye red.

    Here's a good example of raptor's eyes:
