Your one stop Leopard gecko care website. Our mission is to give you the best Leopard gecko information on the web.

Leopard geckos (Eublepharis macularius) are nocturnal lizards belonging to the Eublepharinae subfamily of the family Gekkonidae. They are robust geckos with relative large heads and have numerous tiny wart-like tubercles on their skin. Their natural habitat includes the desert and dry Savannah areas of Southern Central Asia.

As pets, Leopard geckos comes in a variety of patterns, sizes and colouration.

Leopard geckos make interesting pets. Right around the world thousands of these geckos are kept and bred. They are extremely hardy, even in captive environments, with a relative good reproductive potential.

This site is still under construction – please be patient! For now, follow us on Facebook for the newest development.
