Leopard Gecko Characteristics
The leopard gecko is one of the most popular exotic pets, along with the bearded dragon. These little lizards can come in a range of different colors and markings. They’re easy to keep as long as you stick to a few ground rules. Leopard geckos shouldn’t be kept alone. It’s best to start off with two females (males often fight).
Please note: leopard geckos are not cuddly pets. They don’t like being picked up or carried. These animals are, however, great to watch.
How to Keep Them
Terrarium: at least 24 x 18 x 12 inches (60 x 45 x 30 cm) cm per animal (W x H x D)
Feeding time might not be for everyone, as the leopard gecko needs live prey in the form of insects and larvae.
