Leopard Gecko Hide Box

Because Leopard geckos are nocturnal (only active during the hours from dusk until dawn), they need a proper place to hide during the day. Leopard geckos in nature will hide away in tunnels and holes under the sand. Although the desert they live in is quite warm on the surface, it is cool and moist underneath. This is exactly the type of hiding that needs to be created in captivity.

Leopard Gecko Hiding

Leopard gecko hiding can be anything that is closed up and dark, which can contain a moist hide box substrate. The hide box will not only give shelter, but also help to increase the Leopard gecko humidity to prevent shedding problems. A Leopard gecko hide box can be self made or commercially bought.

Good hide box substrates include vermiculite and sphagnum moss. If you are thinking about breeding, try to make the hide box easy accessible, i.e. by placing a lid on the top instead of using a closed box which needs to be taken out regularly to do egg inspections.

The Leopard gecko hide box should be placed on the cooler side of the vivarium.
