    I would call her a super hypo (you're right, no body spots), tangerine (good orange color), carrot tail - barely -, baldie (no head spots). Nice looking gecko!

    Enigmas usually hatch with a few blobby spots on head and body. This one is not an enigma. It looks like a gecko that just didn't get many of the parents' genetic "goodies". The coloring does have...

    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...

    I recommend you hold off and monitor his weight. I have a number of crested and gargoyle geckos that I almost never see eating but they are large and healthy.

    If you can actually see a piece of shed near the eye (my old eyes don't see anything), use tweezers to remove it. Sometimes humidifying doesn't do anything if it's a little stuck piece.

    The only way to know what strain of albino you have is to take your best guess, breed it with another gecko of that strain and see what you get. If you get albinos, you now know what strain your...

    I'll tell you honestly that when I pick up my geckos I do it in such a way that they can't really jump off. I cradle them in one hand and put my other hand over it so they're in a little cave. ...

    Definitely on the mend. It shows that for some geckos, even if it looks like a lost cause, it's worth a try.

    Usually super hypo tangerine is all orange without the white bands. I think she's much prettier with the bands.

    I agree it's most likely pee and poop before it comes out. Some female geckos do ovulate and lay eggs (one of mine just did it in the poop area). Ovulation looks like pink spheres and eggs are...
