Tofu is my beardie but I have three leopard geckos, Raptor, Panda and Pumpkin
I have never seen my beardie’s parents but he is a male and I’m not sure if he is any special type or not? If you can help that would be much appreciated!

He also looks to be a leatherback. Look at each nail,if even 1 nail has a black stripe on top and parallel to the nail he is not a hypo, if they are clear he is a hypo. You may see a very slight dusting of black, that does not disqualify him as a hypo. Hypo means a huge reduction of dark pigment not an absence of it(that would be Leucistic or Albano) (there are no trye Albano beardies)
To answer you question, they are ALL special :) Yours just happens to be a little more special. He is a cutie and should be stunning as an adult.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
is tape safe for fixing something in my leopard geckos hide?
Day 3 of brumation. It's a struggle. I really miss my little guy. 😔
Mirage entered brumation yesterday, I'm gonna miss hanging out with my little guy.
