    Default What morph is my jumbo leopard gecko?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello, everybody! I have had this leopard gecko for three months now, but I'm unsure as to what morph he is. I was thinking something along the lines of a tremper albino mix, but I don't know what he would be mixed with. Anyway, he's about two years old and is 80 grams at the moment, so slightly fatter than in the photos (he was 76 grams when I adopted him). That would make him at least part giant, right?

    Well, I'm no expert, so if someone on here would be so kind as to tell me the morph of my gecko, Sartorius, I would be very grateful!!!007.jpg008.jpg011.jpg001.jpg007.jpg

    He has recently been moved into a larger tank than the ten gallon to accommodate his size (a 20 long for specifics) and is in the process of new decor.

    Looks like a sunglow, but which albino strain, it's hard to tell. Could be tremper sunglow based on the eyes.

    As for whether he's a giant, they are only real giants if they are genetic giants. Meaning they come from parents with giant genes. There are large geckos, but being large and heavy does not make them a "giant" that can pass down the genes.

    Oh, alright. I never would have guessed a Sunglow, thank you very much. And his eyes are more of a sandy color with red veins, I think that is associated with the trempers that I can remember.

    And I'm unsure about the giant as well because he was a pet store purchase, so he may have just been a bigger baby .

    Thank you for the help!

    I think it looks more like a Bell albino. They tend to have pinkish eyes and the tail spots are brownish.

    Nice healthy looking leo.

    oooh, really? That'd be cool if he were Bell!

    And thanks . I got him from a friend who works for a zoo, so he was well cared for before I got him. Since now he's grown fatter in both the tail and the gut, over 8 grams heavier than when I got him :P

    I would say it's a Sunglow with the Bell Albino gene because of the pinkish eyes. Tremper's tend to have more silverish eyes.

    Yup could be Bell Sunglow or Tremper Sunglow, it's really hard to tell with the eye picture shown. Glad the gecko is eating well and getting plump for you
