its relative to their body size and how much they eat in. normally in between a centimeter and an inch.
I was raised on the Texas-Mexican border and the name I learned was "gartijo". The gartijos in south Texas are pinkish and with a light behind them at night they are almost translucent. You can see their intestinal layout and if one is a female with eggs you can see them. They like getting on the window screens at night to catch insects which are attracted to the light. They are considered to bring good luck and are often welcomed in the house and treated with affection as they help rid the house of pests. They do leave their little calling cards behind to let you know they are on duty but they are not difficult to clean up.
It's a method of freaking out the enemy so they get scared and panic, making them easier targets. It's also pretty cool.
You can help a gecko be able to shed its skin well by keeping the correct humidity in the cage, which entirely depends on which kind of gecko you have. You can keep the humidity in the tank higher by misting the tank with a spray bottle every day. This should help it have better sheds. Never pull any hanging skin off yourself, the gecko will rub up against things to do this. Also, you can soak it in a little tub or container of room temperature water, just enough for it to be able to comfortably sit in with the water coming about up to its chest.
Girbles are known for their issue of inbreeding. This causes deformities and most often brain tumors and tumors of other sorts. A brain tumor could be the cause, but I highly suggest that you consult a vet.
Yes, there are diurnal (non-nocturnal) geckos. One is the day gecko, hence the name "day".
Typically, reptiles have a much slower metabolism than other animal species. Reptiles do not require a feeding each and every day. A normal feeding for most reptile species will range from 2-4 feedings per week depending on the size of the reptile and the age. A baby/ juvenile will need more feedings weekly than an adult. each feeding will consist of an appropriate number of proper sized live feeders. They should never be larger than the space between the geckos eyes.
At pets mart you can get panther geckos for 19.99 (plus tax) each.But if your just calling people panther geckos-find a better nick-name for people; ) JK.Enjoy your geckos people!
That will highly depend on how often he will make a mess.
A leopard geckos habitat does not require a daily misting to bring up humidity levels, no. These animals require a humid hide in the terrarium. A humid hide is usually an enclosed area filled with peat moss or paper towel to retain moisture. A shoebox sized tupperwear container with a hole cutout works perfectly. Instead of misting their terrarium, Mist the humid hide daily and ensure a clean bowl of water is supplied daily.
Geckos are like people. They each have their own personality. Some run and jump and climb on everything, some are lazy and sleep all the time, some sit and look through the glass at everything else that's going on, and some constantly hunt for and chase crickets. Some even try 24/7 to escape their cage. Mine's lazy.
I just got bit by my grandsons golden gecko today. I didn't realize how sharp their teeth were or that they would bite at all. I will tell you that it hurt and he drew blood. I almost feels like a nonvenomous snake bite without all the swelling.
since i am a proud owner of many reptiles i can tell you that you should not hold a pet the first day you bring it home. you should not hold it for at least 24 hours. this will give it time to adjust to its new home. you can pet it just not get it out, this will also give it some time to get used to you.
Most of the time you can, but sometimes the mother will eat her babies. I used to have two leopard geckos. 1 male 1 Female, and they had an egg here and there. Unfortunately the eggs weren't fertile enough to strive. I'm not really sure if you can keep a baby with its mother.
Absolutely not ! They require completely different living conditions ! Besides which - they'd never encounter each other in the wild.
No. Very few reptiles are poisonous, the majority are perfectly safe to eat. (There are a few lizards that have evolved this protection against predation).
Additionally, no geckos are venomous. Venomous lizards include the gila monster and beaded lizard, which have the most powerful venom among lizards, and the komodo dragon, which has a milder venom combined with virulent mouth bacteria.
Other monitor lizards are also now known to be mildly venomous, as are many agamid lizards, but their venom is all so weak that no symptoms are noted by the vast majority of people who are bitten by them. (Even the popular pet bearded dragon does have a very mild venom, but you would never know it, even if one chewed on you for an hour).
Crested geckos have a special diet referred to as "Crested Gecko Diet". Crested gecko diet is a meal replacement powder (MRP) that has been specially formulated for this species. Within the diet are all the proper ratios of: Calcium, Phosphorus, Vitamin C, Vitamin B etc..
This diet is a mix of 1 part diet to 2 parts water. It becomes a thicker apple-saucy substance. After it has been poured into a bowl and left in the setup over night, the animal will lap it up.
Yes, A Leopard Gecko is a reptile
Answer: Depending on what type of gecko you have, most of them can regenerate their tail, make sure you give them plenty of food and water, when they do not have their tail they are low on energy (tail is where they store fat tissue that they feed off of while shedding, or starving) It can take anywhere between 2 weeks to 4 months depending on how big the gecko is and what species. My crockadile gecko took 1 month Answer:Yes, geckos can regenerate their tails, however it is very stressful for them, and usually takes at least six months
No; leopard geckos live the deserts; it is the same climate all year and there is no reason for migration
Yes, they're amazing pets I would recommend one to basically anyone. They can bite but they don't have teeth. They are amazingly fun to hold and pet. They are quick and so cute. Their eyes are awesome! If you want a pet, get a Gecko.
Yes, because the female will nurse the baby male.whoever answered this was wrong. they leave their young, there is no nursing involved at all ever.
The female will most likely bully the baby and could cut off his food supply.
Do not house two leopard geckos of different size together.
As all geckos do, they have the ability to "drop their tail" meaning the cartalage at the base of their tails can contract and the tail can detach from the body. This will give the gecko a couple extra seconds to get away from harms reach. A few seconds is all a gecko usually needs to find it's self deep in brush.
Offer your juvenile tokay crickets on a daily basis. As many as they will consume in one sitting. Mine will usually eat 4. Adult tokays should be offered crickets every other day as many as will be consumed in one feeding. I have read some report theirs will eat as many as 10 when full grown.
I offer mine waxworms twice a week. Wax worms are high in fat content. They should be fed no more then twice a week. On the nights I feed waxworms, I do not feed crickets.
