They are SO cute! I'll hopefully be getting some leos soon too.


BTW, Ickis is a tremper albino, not a normal.

IDK, it seems like RAPTORs are theonly ones that have red eyes?


And I'm still debating. Probably just one, but I think it would be fun to keep 2 females like you do!

Very pretty geckos

Yup Ickis is albino. Albino doesn't mean they have to have red eyes and be white, it just means that their scales don't produce the same type of pigments that normals do. In the case of leopard geckos, albino geckos don't produce any black pigmentation. They can produce other colors, like yellow, orange, brown, white...just not black.

Albino leo's eyes are different than normals, but it's not as visually obvious as it is in some types of albino animals. My Tremper albino female's eyes are kind of hard to explain, but they are kind of a pale color with fine lines of red going through them.

Yeah it can be confusing. Especially when most people think of albino, they think of all white with red eyes like an albino rabbit or something. But it's a bit different in reptiles.

Just for fun I zoomed in on a picture of my female so you can see really well what her eye looks like. She is a Tremper Albino.



The only problem is that I don't have a gecko with a normal eye to compare hers too. My male has partial eclipse eyes (eclipse is when their eyes are all black) and my baby female is a Diablo Blanco so she doesn't have normal eyes either.

Here...I did a google search and found some pictures of normal leo eyes...
