Leopard geckos are one of the most kept gecko species in the in the reptile trade. They are certainly one of the easier pet lizards to look after with very little problems. Being established as a pet they are fairly cheap in comparison with other lizards and even other snakes. Like most other lizards / reptiles, pet Leopard geckos are quiet, do not stink and you need little effort from your side to keep them happy. They need little electrical equipment, if any, in their containers, which means their housing is also cheap and is easy to maintain. The container size is relatively small in comparison with other reptiles and UV lighting are unnecessary. Leopard gecko pets are very hardy lizards if the normal requirements are met and will almost adapt in any home. Leopard geckos are relatively small in comparison with other lizards and have a very docile temperament and can be handled easily.


Pet Leopard geckos are nocturnal which means they mainly come out at night. During the day they hide in or under their hiding, making them difficult to see and appreciate. Another downfall compared with snakes is that these geckos need to be fed at least once a day. Like with most lizards, food will be your biggest expense. If not handled with absolute care they might damage their tails which will never grow back to its original size.
