    Default Very First Leopard Gecko/and a ?

    Thats right my first one! I named him/her Inga. Anyone know the Morph of this one? Also you can see it better in the second pic, Inga seems to have white particles on the skin, any idea why or what that is?

    Very nice, if I was to guess I would say tremper albino. The white particles looks like unshed skin.

    I know nothing of leopard morphs but the particles could be paper towel or newspaper from a delicup or soemthing. When they have dry skin stuff sticks to them kind of. Very cute though!

    Aww she is just gorgeous!! I have not studied leo morphs in forever and it is always changing but I believe she would be a tremper albino.

    This is Willow as a baby ..



    and again as an adult....



    Sorry for the crappy baby pic. I only had a cell phone for pics back then

    I have never seen the flaky white but I will look into it for you. I would try to give her a "Sauna" with just slightly above room temp water. Also make sure to leave a humid hide for her on the warm side of the enclosure. I am certain you know all of this already but it never hurts to be specific. I have found wrapping a mix of moist cocofiber and moss up in panty hose material (Usually knee highs) and then wrapping that in damp paper towels and putting it in a covered gladware container works fabulous for a humid hide and you don't have to worry about impaction. I use this method for every non egg laying gecko I have from Cresties to Leos to Gargs.
    Best of luck with your little one!!

    My boyfriend recently bought his first 2 leos, and they had similar little white specks that ended up just being dry skin that eventually shed off. Make sure you have a 'moist' hide spot to help with shedding too

    Thanks, I have put up a moist side which is a water dish and a butter container thats cut out with wet paper towel. I saw it on a caresheet. Anyone recommend a good way to heat a leo. I say the UTH's But what if you have multiple tanks.. Just thinking ahead.. LOL
