The Leopard Geckos come in a number of colors and patterns from tan coloration to a bright orange, with dark spots or patters and some have no pattern whatsoever. They are a medium sized specie with bodies covered with raised tubercles, expressive eyes and the appearance of a smile on their faces.

Pet Geckos are not always the right pet for everyone, but are ideally suited if you have limited space. You will also be required to feed and clean up after your Gecko, everyday in addition to proving proper care, every day. Can I feed life food to a Gecko? Remember that even though the Gecko isn’t quite the snuggle type pet, if you find yourself agreeing to these statements, then the Gecko may be the right choice for you.

Understand that Geckos are small and have delicate bodies, so if you should decide to handle it be very careful with them. They are typically skittish as babies and will almost with certainty attempt to run away from you. With regular gentle handling your Gecko should get used to you and became tame. When handling for the first time keep in that it’s best to pick up the Gecko from underneath, not from above as your pet could become confused and think you’re a predator. Never restrain your Gecko by its tail as the tail may come off.

We recommend a ten to twenty gallon tank for your Gecko which is sufficient for one male and two females comfortably. We also recommend providing your Gecko with a number of hiding places such as half logs and remember to place hide with some moist moss or vermiculite inside to help you shedding and laying of eggs (if you plan on breeding). You can use new paper, astroturf a moss matt a sand soil mixture or rocks for the substrate. Any sort of substrate that you do get, ensure its not dusty as particles may cause breathing issues. Ensure that it is a very fine grain sand to reduce the risks of impactation. While your Gecko is still young, ensure you use only paper towels or newspaper.

Choosing the right enclosure for you pet Gecko will depend on the pet’s size in addition to the number of Gecko’s you wish to keep, in a single enclosure. Be sure to get a tight-fighting lid to ensure your Gecko’s do not escape. Gecko’s love to hide so be sure to provide plenty of non-toxic plants, logs, branches or bark pieces. Possible substrates my be forest bedding, calcium sand or reptile carpet if your Gecko has the tendency to eat its substrate. Keep enclosure humidity at a comfortable fifty-percent with regular misting, and the average temperature for the enclosure in the range of eight-five to ninety degrees Fahrenheit for the cooler end. Fluorescent lights should be on for ten to twelve hours per day and an incandescent bulb may be used for basking times during the day. Arid geckos need some UVB light if they are diurnal; a ceramic or black light heather can be used for any hours of the day or night, too. As a result of skin shedding, be sure that humidity levels are stable enough to allow this as well as a container for it to immerse itself in and help itself shed its skin. Females of the same species may be housed together, but males and other various reptiles should not be housed together.

When kept in captivity, Gecko’s are prone to a conditioning called dysecdysis, which causes your gecko to retain portions of his skin. This is easily to remedy.

Treating your Gecko of dysecdysis, is a very . Start by placing your Gecko in a small, plastic container with sphagnum moss of damp paper towels for fifteen to thirty minutes. This will increase humidity in the container and will help loosen the retained skin, which may shed without further effort on your part. If your Gecko is handleable, gently rub the areas with retained skin to remove it, but don’t put too much pressure and do not force it come off. If you pet is too aggressive, return him to his cage and repeat the procedure several times until all of the retained skin is gone.

Petware House

Dehydration is almost always the root cause of poor shedding. Some Geckos don’t drink water directly from a bowl but instead acquire water droplets from plants and other related cage surfaces. However, provide your pet with fresh drinking water at all times. If your Gecko is originally from very humid habitats, be sure to provide high humidity in the cage. You can also maintain high humidity by misting the cage regularly, reducing the cage ventilation or by using moisture retaining substrate such as orchid bark, cypress mulch or soil. This should apply to Geckos from an arid environment as well as your pet will benefit from a dampened retreat.

Other known issues that may case problematic shedding is if your pet becomes ill or stressed out. Help him feel secure in his environment by providing hiding spaces. Also visit your local veterinarian to ensure he is in good health. External parasites, particularly mites, can lead to poor sheds as well as other health problems, so monitor your pet, closely.

Your Arid Gecko should be feed insects like cricketsand locusts from the staple diet in captivity. Mealworms are a good choice but should be dusted with a good vitamin and mineral supplement. In addition, gut load the insect food by feeding with a nutrient rich mixture available from Pet Warehouse, but do not do both. As a treat and only occasionally, you may feed your pet wax worms.
