Background and Nature of Leopards
Leopard geckos also called panther gecko is one of the best pets to keep, which are not difficult to care for and comes in a variety of colors.
Leopard geckos mostly live on the ground and are exceptionally known for their existent eyelids which most geckos don’t have. Geckos do not blink or move their eyelids but the leopard gecko does, this makes them exceptional and special. The leopard gecko is the largest breed of geckos.
Leopard geckos are mostly found in the desert and they like to feel warm and dry. Therefore, when setting up a tank for your pet gecko, don’t forget to add a heat source to keep it warm and make the tank conducive.
Leopard gecko does not have sticky hands like the rest of geckos which make climbing an impossible thing to do therefor the dwell on the ground.
Geckos love to eat insects like cockroach, crickets, and worms. These insects add great nutritional value to them and geckos do not need to be fed daily. You can feed them twice a week but good and stable drinking water should be provided for them to help them stay hydrated.
Precaution to Caring for Leopard Gecko
Leopards geckos care easily for without much stress. You can provide it with a tank (preferably glass tank) for you to monitor it easily and take good care of it. The tank serves as it’s home and it makes the gecko more comfortable because it is afraid of predators and shy in nature.
Geckos are shy in nature and will require a secret place of hiding in the tank and also will need a climbing place. You don’t have to worry about the gecko escaping when you provide it a climbing space because it leaves on the ground. The Exo Terra Reptile Cave is an exceptional solution to make your gecko happy and comfortable. (more…)
