Item# BLGB

Product Description

Scientific name: Eublepharis Macularius
The leopard gecko, is one of the most commonly kept reptiles in the pet industry. Many factors contribute to this including easy of feeding, minimal space requirements, beauty, and because it is easily obtained from most local and national pet shops. Being one of the first captive bred reptiles, this species has evolved to include many different morphs (color patterns). Through selective breeding of individuals with similar desired traits. These traits vary, but are different coloration markings, some of which look very exotic. These genetic mutations are then given names, often referring to their specific coloration. Some names are even copyrighted by the breeder, so as to capitalize upon their being the first breeder of that individual trait. Even though there are many variations of the leopard gecko, they are all classified under the same scientific name of Eublepharis macularius. Some well-known variations are striped, high yellow, jungle, ghost, raptor, leucistic, albino, and many others.
A leopard gecko can live to be over 20 years old. As an adult, the average length is between 7 and 10 inches (up to 25 cm). The speed at which your leopard gecko grows from hatching to adulthood is dependable, like all reptiles on feeding schedule, and volume intake. That being said, leopard geckos, like all captive reptiles, can have a propensity towards obesity. It is important, as with all pets, to keep to a diet regiment, which provides for a healthy lizard.
Due to the frequency of breeding in captivity, the leopard gecko is available as a captive bred specimen for prices in the same vicinity of wild caught individuals. Captive bred reptiles should be parasite free, more tolerant to human contact, and in better overall health. There are still a number of wild caught leopard geckos, being imported primarily from Pakistan and India. Males should never be housed together, as they tend to be territorial with one another, competing for mates. Unlike many other lizards however, males (solitary) may be kept with females at a ratio up to 1:10.
Males are somewhat larger than females and reach sexual maturity at approximately 10 months of age. For a first time breeding project, leopard geckos are an excellent choice. There is an immense volume of information available about every aspect of leopard gecko care, and breeding. Females may lay up to 16 eggs per season. Careful regulation of temperature is required to prevent the eggs from being infertile. Leopard geckos are Temperature dependant sexually determined (TSD). What this means is that eggs incubated at higher temperatures will produce male offspring and eggs incubated at lower temperatures will produce female offspring. These incubation temperatures are approximately 82 for females and 90 degrees for males. Having this temperature dependency allows professional breeders to determine the outcome of a hatching, dependant with the needs of that breeder. The sex will be determined within the first two weeks of incubation, with the young hatching in as little as 70 days of incubation.
As with any pet, you should have their habitat set up, prior to receiving your pet. To keep one leopard gecko, one should consider a cage with a minimum of 12 inches by 12 inches, and sides at least 10 inches high. While being, they do have some ability to climb, that being said it is in the best interest of your gecko to provide a screen lid that can be secured. While it may, or may not be necessary to keep your specific pet in, it can keep out dangers as well (i.e. other pets, or poisonous/ venomous insects). It is important to be able to regulate the temperature for your leopard gecko. This may be done with any combination of lights, undertank heaters, or ceramic heat emitters. While there is little study on the subject of reptile emotions and psychology, it should be relatively easy to assume that producing a replicated naturalistic environment will produce less stressed animals. Allowing, a habitat large enough that you can create a temperature gradient, allows your gecko to naturally control his or her temperature much as they would do in the wild. Providing basking surfaces is important, but it is highly recommended not to use heat rocks. Electrical heat rocks are inconsistent with temperatures and can cause burns to the underneath side of your leopard gecko. The heat produced is also very artificial in comparison to the use of a full spectrum light bulb. Other required furniture is a hide box, which provides a place for your
