Hey all!
I've recently just gotten into gecko's. They've always been interesting for me but never really got into them...until a few months ago.
I started out with a crested gecko, Keru, and have a bioactive vivarium for him.

I just recently rescued a juvenile leopard gecko from someone I work with who decided she didn't want it. He is currently living in a 10 gallon tank, but I'm building him a custom cage (thanks to all the diy and cool stuff I see on the forums!) so I'm sure I'll update that when I'm done. The little guy (or girl, it's a little young for me to tell) has grown and gained weight since I got him :)
This is when I first brought him/her home:

This was just this morning (about 2 weeks from the first picture) Cornered a cricket and after it was eaten, just decided to chill and take a nap.

Now, I don't know too much about leopard gecko's (hence why I spend so much time reading in the forums! :) ) But this little guy doesn't seem to be a normal coloring? He's lost his bands but he seems to be loosing all his spots...does that mean he is some sort of morph?

Thanks for reading and I look forward to being on the forums more!

Welcome to GF! Nice looking geckos. If your leopard geckos loses all its body spots it can be called a "super hypo". If it loses the spots on the head as well, it's a "Baldy". If it gets more of an orange coloring than a yellow color in the body, it's a "tangerine".
