Geckos are small to average sized lizards that belong to the family Gekkonidae and are found in warm climates throughout the world. Geckos are unique among lizards in their vocalizations, making chirping sounds in social interactions with other geckos. They also have characteristic padded toes with suction cups for vertical climbing.About 2,000 different species of geckos exist worldwide, with many likely yet to be discovered.
Yes, it is recommended that you do so every 3-4 months
Just one - the Eublepharis hardwickii - also known as the Eastern Indian Leopard Gecko. .
this is what a leopard gecko looks like.
Yes, but you want to check the sex of the geckos. If you put males and females together they will probably breed.
recovering a lost gecko is very hard. I'm sorry to say it but if the you haven't found the gecko in 3 days it's probably dead. to prevent this use a lizard leash.
You incubate the eggs for 6-12 weeks
The Round Island Day geckos are suited to a hot and forestenvironment. This means that they have "sticky" feet for climbingtrees and leaves. Like most lizards, they have evolved a tonguethat can catch nearby insects. They also use their tongues forlearning about their surroundings and grooming....
Japan and Chinese culture eat meal-worms
If the wood is VERY rough, maybe, but usually no.
They have sex.
Geckos are among one of the fastest lizard breeds, the fastestbeing the Common Basilisk. Geckos can reach speeds of 27 mph forshort distances.
If you mean mealworms then yes.
It depends on what type of gecko.
If you grab it or pinch it in something it will come off. At times they can loose their tail if another crested bites it.
It is a typical fear response. When they get that stressed you may want to leave them alone for a couple hours.
Their predators. Large birds and snakes too.
Because they only eat other animals, they don't eat plant matter
Its depends really, it could be any where from a few days to 1 or 2weeks
A regular leopard gecko will cost very little - I bought mine for £35 from a reptile store. Please note however, that I bought mine as a baby, so it was cheaper. An adult may cost slightly more.
I'd say no, because it's more rocky there. But in the wooded areasthey probably could.
i dont think they even lay eggs yeah they the eggs out
the record is 27 years but they average around 10-20 under good care. Animals that have been bred usually have a shorter lifespan in comparison to an animal that has never been bred throughout its life. If all conditions have been kept properly and maintenance has been done throughout the animals...
They have to be pretty large, i would suggest you could startfeeding geckos pinkie mice once they stop growing. Although do notrely on pinkie mice as a regular meal for your geckos as they arehigh in fats and calcium, it can cause obesity even though they arerecommended for pregnant or breeding...
The monito gecko is a protected species of gecko under CITES andare not able to be shipped. A license is required to keependangered species.
You can easily obtain one at a pet store. If you only have onegecko, a 10 gallon vivarium is the minimum. If you plan on gettinga second gecko, you'll need a 20 gallon one
birds and spiders
no, they only eat crickets and meal worms because live food is more common for them.
I believe that geckos have a very similar sleeping patterns tocats. Some can sleep at night some can sleep during the day, someseem to always sleep and some seem to never sleep. I find thatgeckos are use to being handled at certain times, so if you playwith your gecko during the day that is when the...
Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Reptilia Order: Squadata Suborder: Scleroglossa infraorder: Gekkota Beyond that, it depends on the species
When I first got my leopard gecko he didn't eat for the first day, I think he was adjusting to his new environment On the second day I placed him in-front of a dish {low down and not sharp} with about 4 meal-worms in and he started to eat them. So try putting him in-front of some meal-worms and see...
No ! Geckos (and other reptiles) should ONLY be fed on their NATURAL diet !
No.Because I have a male and female...Once I picked up on eof it's eggs nothing happened but when you pick em up hold them gently.Within 6-8 weeks,the egg/eggs will hatch without the gecko being harmed...And also can you pick up a house gecko?
I think a leopard gecko would be best. They are very lowmaintenance, easy to care for, and they have a low risk ofsalmonella. As with any pet, monitor your child to make sure thatthey are providing adequate care and do your research on the animalbefore you purchase it.
I don't know if this a defense or merely a way to escape beingeaten, but most species of geckos can detach their tail when theyget scared or when it is grabbed. It will grow back later.
They have been known to live from 5-15years in the wild. They were re discovered in 1994 so the eldest one could only be 19years at this point. They are said to live up to 20years if cared for properly.
All over the world. Except Antarctica.
A female leopard gecko usually lays eggs once a month
Never put two males together because one will be dominant. Male crested geckos will fight for rights to breed, as well as territory. There is also chances that the bigger adult will pick on or bully the smaller of the two, due to such big size difference.
Members of the Rhac family can continue to live in the room temperatures but still need to thrive in humidity. Search your house for damp places. If no luck Continue to place CGD into the tank with the lid open and the only hope is that your gecko will come back to what it knows is comfortable. It...
Depends. If it is scared it may bite. If it is used to you, it probably won't bite. Handle it alot and let other people handle it alot, and that will get it used to you. The bites aren't very strong i think, and usually do not break the skin.
Crickets are used for fattening purposes with crested geckos. When breeding, females calcium stores are nearly depleted from the preparation of eggs. Feeding your crested supplemented crickets will aid in the cooling period, ensuring your female will be prepeared for next season.
Answer . I think animals aren't happy in captivity because maybe they miss half of their family those who live in the wild, maybe they are home sick.
Sunglow is a specific morph of leopard gecko. Leopard geckos comein a multitude of colors and patterns. No leopard geckos do not eatlettuce, they are insectivores relying on a variety in livefeeders.

Please don't try it, that sounds dumb
you can tell when your gecko is pale and is usually in a moist place .
It depends on how they have been socialized. My two geckos are veryfriendly because they have been handled and desensitized to humancontact since they were very young, but I have met geckos that arevery afraid of people.
For the same reason that most other species do, to protect theireyes
That depends on the species, age and overall health. For example,in a healthy adult leopard gecko, going five days without foodwould be no problem, but for a crested gecko needs to be fed everycouple of days. Do some research on whatever species you have, butas a general rule, don't do it unless you...
Absolutely not ! They are from completely different countries - requiring different temperature ranges and humidity levels !
Ask your vet/someone at the pet store. If you don't know what youare looking at, it's very hard to tell the gender. You won't know until is either grown or about to be grown, but withmales you see dots under it going into a shape of a v like thisbelow . . . . . . . but females don't. Above...
No. Their sleep patten is part of nature. You can't change it.
Yes, leopard geckos do grow their tails back. It would probablytake a couple of months, and the tail would be smaller and lessimpressive than the original.
Typically a gecko during breeding season will be a little bit more jumpy than usual. A male can sometimes get on the females nerves and nips can be exchanged back and forth. A geckos jaw is very weak in comparison to most other reptiles. Their jaws are not meant to grind down strong exo skeletons of...
That depends on the species. A leopard gecko will live 10-12 years,while a crested gecko will live 15-20 years.

A small gecko should not be eating any live feeder wider than the size between your geckos eyes. The animals can usually eat pinhead crickets, fruit flys, or depending on the species, even enjoy meal replacement powder every so often.
it depens cause if it is a juvinule it will be between 30 and 50 but if it is an adault it will be between 50 and 150
its relative to their body size and how much they eat in. normally in between a centimeter and an inch.
Leopard tanks can be destroyed from the air too. Brimstone, hellfire and maverick are some examples of missiles which are able to pierce the leopard armour.
Depends on the species. Leopard geckos can, but some others may notbe able to.

Wax worms are fine for leopard geckos but only as a treat as in for a fully sized gecko just add like 2-3 in with its meal.
The dwarf geckos are not a species, but a genus( sphaerodactylus ), which means that there are multiplespecies within that group, and each one has a different scientificname
Yes they do that's how most breeders do it so the get the genes right its not as harmfull as it is to humans but their is a small chance that the inbreeding will cause defects like bad legs or eyes with the baby geckos.
