Do leopard gecko nails grow back after losing them?

A leopard gecko should not ever "loose" its nails. The animals shed their skin but nothing else. If your leopard gecko has lost fingertips, this is more than likely due to the animal having an irregular shed. Every leopard gecko setup must have a humid hide for this reason. If a shed is stuck on the limbs of a gecko, the dead skin will start to cut the circulation off to the finger/toe tips.
