Yes. However, the gecko only bites when frightened or if he mistakes your fingers for food. Also, they don't really have 'teeth' so their bite is very mild and startles you much more than it hurts. Most times it wont even break the skin!
Not usually, my gecko never really bites unless you ticked him off. So only if there young and messing with him.

Medium sized carnivores eat leopard geckos, usually as just a snack. They do not have any major defenses (poison, spitting, ect.). They do bite if provoked.
