I got a new gecko last Thursday and I asked them what his morph and age was they said they didn't know and neither do I so I was wondering if you could help me out?

Hello Melissa,

Sure.  Your leopard gecko is gorgeous!
It appears to be a hypo tangerine.  Is he getting ready to shed possibly?
He does have some traits of a carrot tail, too.  There are a lot of morphs & crosses of leopard geckos.
He looks to be around a year or so, based on his tail thickness thus far.  How long is he & what is his weight?

I can answer questions pertaining to health, UVB specifics, overall husbandry care & supplementation, analysis of blood test results, and behavioral problems & handling. I can answer questions pertaining to bearded dragons, leopard geckos, iguanas, uromastyx & ball pythons. I can answer adeno virus related questions in bearded dragons, & then specifically about the testing methods as well. I am beginning an Pogona Adeno Testing Society in 2008 which will help to begin to start some standardization within the bearded dragon colonies of the breeders who choose to test.


I have been working with bearded dragons for over 5 years now, as well as leopard geckos, too. I am currently doing rescues, as well. I hope to be able to educate people prior to them purchasing an exotic pet in order to avoid any health crisis with them.

I have a master's degree in sports medicine & physiology, & 1 year of vet tech schooling, & am currently working on a reptile certification through the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council.
