Leopard Gecko Morphs
Leopard gecko morphs
Some of the nicest leopard geckos are morphs (I am personally quite keen on blizzards). But, what is a morph? When people talk about leopard gecko colour morphs they mean something that looks different in some way (be it in colour, pattern, lack of pattern, etc) to other “normal leopard geckos”. This difference is more often than not genetically based meaning it can be passed on through selective breeding. This selective breeding has been used to refine the pattern of morphs into something simply amazing.
Most colour morphs started out life as a genetic fault (basically, nature screwed up), in the wild these morphs stand out and will be quickly be picked off by predators (although there are exceptions where morphs have started from thriving wild caught individuals). In captivity however geckos with a unique look or colour are favored and often kept back for further breeding. This means new morphs are being found and created all the time.
On this page I aim to document all of the known leopard gecko morphs, including a short description and wherever possible a picture. As I mentioned new morphs are being created all the time so this page is going to be constantly updated as and when I find out about these. If you know of a morph that isn’t on this page and would like it to be added visit the contact page and get in touch.
