LEOPARD GECKO CARE SHEET

 

Leopard geckos make fantastic beginner reptiles.  Their care is relatively easy and they thrive with just minimal equipment and a proper diet.  I have been breeding Leopard Geckos for over 20 years and have scaled my collection down to a smaller, manageable group of really top class geckos.  All breeding stock are big, healthy, outstanding geckos that I put a lot of care and time into.  I think you will agree the offspring represent this hardwork and all are exceptional representatives of their genetics.

My geckos are kept here in a rack  with a flex watt tape system set at 90 degrees.  They are fed a main diet of meal worms (kept in dish at all times, meal worms are gut loaded with fresh vegetables so that the meal worms are round and plump and not a dried out old rubber band!) dusted with vionate and calcium.  They get cricket snacks several times per week as well as dubia roach snacks several times per week.  Each gecko has a water dish in his house.  The ambient reptile room temperature is 81 degrees.  Each gecko has a tupper-ware sandwich container in his house with moist organic moss for bedding and the gecko houses (plastic shoe box) are lined with newspaper or paper towels. The gecko homes are kept extremely clean, I will usually wipe down the containers with a moist paper towel every day. 

Please note:  Often times when geckos are shipped they decide to balk at food at their new home, if this occurs try offering crickets to inspire them to hunt..this usually does the trick and they will then go after the mealworms
