Leopard geckos are lizards native to Pakistan, India and Afghanistan where the terrain is dry and rocky. The geckos live on and under the ground and are nocturnal. The reptile has a triangular head and a large tail where it stores fat. Its skin is bumpy and heavily patterned. The patterns are designed to camouflage and protect it from being seen by predators.
A leopard gecko makes an excellent pet. It is small, has minimal care requirements, and can be left alone for several days. The animal is quiet, doesn’t smell, doesn’t need attention, and a large amount of space for its home isn’t required. A gecko is inexpensive and easily available from pet stores and breeders. There are a wide variety of color and pattern variations. Because it is so easy to care for, a leopard gecko is a great choice if you want a pet reptile.
