Geckos

Geckos make popular pet reptiles because of their small size, docile personality and the fact that they are easily tamed.

Petmania Leopard Gecko

Because they are nocturnal, they have no special lighting requirements which are common for other lizards. Babies must be fed daily but adults can be fed every other day and left alone for a few days at a time without issue. 

Types of Geckos

  • Standing Day Gecko
  • Striped Fat Tail Gecko
  • Tokay Gecko
  • Leopard Gecko
  • Chested Gecko
  • Blizzard Gecko
  • Golden Gecko
  • Giant Day Gecko

Company for Geckos

Male Geckos are instinctively very territorial, so you can only have one male per enclosure. Females can be territorial as well, but it isn't as common as in males. If you plan to house multiple Geckos, it is recommended to keep multiple females or, if you intend breeding, multiple females and one male.

Lifespan

Geckos are long-lived compared to some reptiles, and on average you can expect your Gecko to live 6 to 10 years, although many males live 10 to 20 years.
