Pictured is a unique, individual Leopard Gecko. Each of our Leopard Geckos are hand picked and photographed so you know what this exact gecko will look like. Leopard Geckos are great pets, especially for beginners in reptile care. They typically have a mild temperament, and do not mind being held. They also require fairly simple care and are safe for children.
Things to Know & Consider owning a Leopard Gecko:
Leopard Geckos are desert animals that need a fairly high range of ambient temperature to stay comfortable, and a decent amount of space to grow. Young Geckos can start in a 10 Gallon enclosure, upped to a 20 Gallon enclosure once they have matured into an adult. Leopard Geckos usually hide during the day to avoid high temperatures and predators in the wild, so we often recommend at least one cool spot for your gecko to be able to stay in, and a place to hide for both the hot and cold areas of your enclosure. A humidity chamber is also important to aid shedding and give your your gecko a cool, moist place to stay. Calcium sand or Arid dirt substrate, and substrate mats like reptile carpet or sand mats make great material for a Leopard Gecko to. Leopard Geckos primarily eat feeder insects and need a water source from a water dish.
