Informative Care Guide

The Leopard Gecko is an ideal reptile for the beginning reptile enthusiast as well as for the advanced hobbyist. It is a docile and “easy-to-care” for species that have been captive bred in the USA and Europe for more than 30 years. The Leopard Gecko is available in its natural colour and pattern, but also in various designer colour morphs.

Leopard Gecko facts:
Scientific name: Eublepharis macularius
Family: Leopard geckoes belong to the subfamily Eublepharidae or eyelid geckos
Distribution: Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan and a part of India
Average hatchling size: 3-4 in (7-10cm)
Average adult size: 7-10 in (18-25cm)
Average life span: 10-25 years (some individuals even live longer)
Housing: Exo Terra’s Natural Terrarium SMALL/LOW is ideal for Leopard Geckos. Leopard Geckos can be housed together in pairs or small groups of 1 male with 2-3 females, but males should never be housed together.
Substrate: the Sand Mat simulates the compacted substrate in the leopard gecko’s natural environment. The Sand Mat should be replaced every 3 months, or as needed.
CARE TIP: the more often waste is spotted and removed, the longer the Sand Mat will last.
Decoration: the Reptile Cave Medium is a nice decorative hideout for your leopard gecko to hide and sleep in during daylight hours
Lighting: Leopard Geckos are mainly crepuscular, meaning they’re most active during dusk and dawn. The energy-efficient Exo Terra Day & Night LED Fixture (2W only) provides optimal light for viewing pleasure as well as to simulate a 12-hour day-night cycle.
Heating: it’s best to create a daytime temperature gradient by heating approximately 1/3 of the floor space (88-94°F/31-34°C) by placing the Exo Terra Heat Mat Small on one side of the terrarium floor, so 2/3 will remain cool (80-82°F/26-28°C) – keep the nighttime temperature at an average of 68-72°F (20-22°C). Additional heating (like the Exo Terra Infrared Basking Spot, Night Heat Lamp or Ceramic Heater) may be necessary if temperatures fall below the recommended range.
Food: Insectivorous – feed juveniles daily and adults every other day – always dust your feeder insects with a 1:1 mix of Exo Terra Multivitamin and Calcium +D3 powder supplement. Watering: Always provide your Leopard Geckos with fresh, clean drinking water in the Exo Terra medium Water Dish. Use Exo Terra Aquatize Terrarium Water Conditioner to remove Chlorine & Chloramine as well as to neutralize heavy metals from the tap water.
