    Default Melanistic Eclipse Patternless and a MS pos albino? What do you think?

    Not sure what she is. The splotchy pattern instead of bands is something I don't recognize.

    His body color ranges from yellow to a smoky black. His tail and head are always black.

    Not sure about their eyes either, they look much darker than my other leos' eyes.

    The first one with the splotchy pattern is that way due to the stripe gene. The manifestation of the gene ranges from a single broken body band and/or tail band, to body and tail bands that run from shoulder to tail instead of from side to side, to a bunch of splotches coming from broken body and tail bands but also kind of hypo-looking so it isn't really a stripe. Mostly these are called "jungles". If the eyes are truly solid dark or half dark, kind of like a snake eye it's an eclipse. I doubt it's an albino since it has brown, not beige splotches. Often when the dark markings are a washed out black it means that they will eventually fade.

    The second one could be a blizzard, though I don't know the lineage of the parents so I have no way of knowing. It's not unusual for the same blizzard to range from white to lavender to dirty orange to even darker. I have hatched out very dark geckos that eventually lighten up.
