Baby Leopard Gecko Care


Baby Leopard Gecko Recommendations

So you just got your first baby Leopard gecko. Now what? Most problems occur within the first few days during the so-called Leopard gecko baby adaptation period. Even if the vivarium setup is according to specs, even if the lighting and temperatures are within range, some problems are bound to happen. The most important pointers are summarized below.

  • Keep the vivarium temperature constant

  • Keep the photoperiod constant

  • Restrict the handling of baby Leopard geckos

  • Only feed gut loaded & dusted food

  • Give food in flat container within site of main sitting areas

  • Keep the vivarium doors or lid closed at all times

  • Keep movement in front of the vivarium doors to a minimum

  • Only feed a few (two or three) crickets at a time (only add more if the baby dragon ate them all)

  • Only feed the smallest possible live crickets

I know some of these recommendation are going to be difficult at certain times. You just got your new, interesting pet baby Leopard gecko and you want to show it to everybody. Don't do it, or at least try to do it in the vivarium. Only a few days without food is enough to make your Leopard gecko baby weak enough to have a severe disadvantage or even die!
