Morph?

Hey everyone! Meet my dragon family! I recently got two beardies, Draco and Mushu! I was told Draco, the first image, was just a normal morph, and Mushu, the second, was a mixed morph. I was just wondering if anyone can confirm or perhaps tell me a little about what Mushu has in him? I'd love to start learning the morphs of dragons, and would appreciate your help! Mushu has some nice lavendar and orangey colors, as well as lots of carmel. Sorry if these images are a bit hard to see, tried to take the best I could!
Thanks all,
Kaylee (:

Hi Kaylee,

They both appear to be normal morphs :)

Some ways you can tell better for yourself would be this:

Hypo dragons will have perfectly clear nails. No color at all.
Trans dragons typically have completely black eyes, like a sharks.
Leatherbacks have reduced scales.

Your first picture clearly isn't a leatherback.
The second picture is a little blurry so it's hard to differentiate, but it doesn't appear to be a leatherback either.

Generally, color isn't considered a morph, more so a trait.

No problem, it's a common misconception :)

Morph really refers to genetic deviation from "normal" or wild genetics.
