Leopard Gecko Care and Feeding

Leopard Gecko (Eublepharis macularius)

The leopard gecko is an impressive looking creature, and its docile and easy-to-tame nature makes it an excellent pet. Originally from the desert regions of Southern Asia, the leopard gecko is very common today and has been domesticated in the United States for over 30 years now. Leopard Geckos are nocturnal, land-dwelling and usually move at a pretty slow pace. Leopard geckos have quirky personalities that make them very exciting to own as pets. They are vocal and make squeaking noises when they are excited or hungry. Leopard geckos also have a tail that rattles like a rattlesnake when they are hunting insects or about to mate. They have vertical shaped pupils, use their tongue to clean their eyeballs and are one of the few gecko species that have eyelids and prominent outer ears.
