Leopard Gecko Morphs

This page is designed to give you an example of the wide variations of colours and patternations which Leopard Geckos are now availble in, the collection of selective bred or genetic traits that effect a leos appearence are known as Morphs or Phases .

The pictures supplied are for example purposes only and are not actual leo's that are for sale!

Monitor Calibration is very important when you are attempting to reproduce spectacular or vibrant colours, for example Leopard Gecko morphs , on a computers monitor. This is the reason I have displayed a greyscale strip below, if you can not differentiate between the first two or three squares or the last two or three squares, I would advise you to use the calibration links in order to find out how to calibrate your monitor correctly.
