About

The Blizzard morph, discovered by Prehistoric Pets in 1995, is very similar to the Murphy Patternless morph. Like the Murphy Patternless morph, the Blizzard morph is a simple recessive morph. As hatchlings, Blizzards are completely patternless and their colors will vary from white, to yellow, to a deep purple. As they grow older, most change within the color scale mentioned previously. The darker Blizzards are usually marketed as Midnight Blizzards, but there seems to be nothing which controls the dark pigments. The more yellow Blizzards are often marketed as Banana Blizzards, but a true Banana Blizzard is a Murphy Patternless Blizzard. Another trait which seems to randomly pop up with Blizzards is Snake Eyes or solid eyes. As of right now, there is nothing genetic behind the Snake Eyes or Eclipse Eyes in Blizzards. Most people have them randomly pop up. [1]

Completely patternless, with only faint traces of yellow coloration remaining, these are quite possibly true leucistic Leopard Geckos. A high-yellow variant is often referred to as ‘Banana’, although this term is more properly applied to specimens double homozygous for Murphy Patternless and Blizzard. Another simple recessive genetic trait. [2]
