  • Leopard Gecko Morph ID

    Can anyone ID this morph, if it's even anything special?

    Two shots attached, one young and the other more current.

    Thanks!

    He's a Normal morph, or what some people call High Yellow, which I find funny...

    It's a good looking Leo though.

      Normal and High Yellow are actually two separate morphs. In this case, you have a Normal. A high yellow would present with much more yellow coloration throughout the body and reduced black spotting.

          Cassi, that's more what I was referring to. More often than not I find people calling these guys High Yellows. I should have worded it differently, my bad.

            Ahh gotcha now, and yes, I have seen that as well.

              Actually, looking at the picture of the gecko as a juvie, it seems likely that it's a Mack snow since the baby picture is white and black banded. If it was truly white and black banded at that age (and not a case of the lighting in the picture being off), it could be a Mack snow, which frequently yellows up as it ages, often retaining some lavendar coloration.

                He was indeed black and white banded as a juvie and yellowed as he grew up. I'll get a better, well-lit shot next time he's up for a weigh-in (Monday or Tuesday).

                  New photo

                  Here's a photo from today, just after a big meal. Hopefully this one is clear enough to see the coloration under all the spots.

                    Looks just like my female, which i refer to as high yellow... am I incorrect in doing so?
