One of the most diverse geckos available in the pet trade. Leopard Geckos are small, typically docile, easy to handle and available in a multitude of colours and patterns. They are a nocturnal species being primarily active at night time and enjoy feasting on a variety of insects. The genetic traits of these little guys can get pretty complex which makes learning about them that much more interesting. Highly recommended for first time reptile owners!
Interesting Fact: Leopard Geckos have many predators in the wild and as a defense mechanism are able to voluntarily detach their own tails as a means of distraction so that it could run away. This is called autotomy and they will regrow their tail in full over time and nourishment.
