    Default Wondering what my gecko morph is?

    Hello,
    I did check the morph guides and I am just a little confused on a few things. Her tail in the last two weeks all of the sudden got really orange. I know they do change but I guess I didn't expect the orange tail.Lumii_20210912_181453000.jpg

    Am I right to say that this other girl I got on the same day is a blizzard? She is actually in rehab for two front legs that have gotten injured in a shed. But her body is totally white and gets a dusty grey when she is on the cooler side of the enclosure. I wanted to feature the eyes in the photos. Thank you everyone in advance.

    Let me know if you need to see the orange ones eyes. Sometimes they look peach in color and sometimes they don't. Actually lemme add a picture.

    Yes, the second one is a blizzard. The first one is a nice albino. It could be a Mack snow albino because of the white, but there's no way to know for sure unless there's a breeder you can contact. The orange part of the tail looks to be a regenerated tail, is it? If so, regenerated tails can become all sorts of unusual colors. Geckos with orange tails are often called carrot tails, but that orange usually starts from the end near the back legs and spreads upward. I'm suspecting that this orange is due to the regenerated tail. Let me know if I'm wrong about that. The eyes look like a regular albino gecko's eyes.

    Thank you for responding. Yes the tail is a regeneration. I really am not sure unfortunately what the genetics are for her. Just was wondering what people see who are more experienced.

    That's a good point. When we say what the morph is based only on a picture, we're really just commenting on the visuals and obviously have no idea if there are any unseen components to the morph.

    Right just looking for a little insight is all. Thanks for the response. I was told by someone she looked like a super hypo tangerine albino. Wasn't sure what anyone around here thought so I appreciate your comments. She sure is pretty I think, no matter what she may be.

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