Leopard gecko

Eublepharis macularius


Leopard geckos got their name from the leopard like spots that adorn their body. An adult female can be as long as 7 to 8 inches. An adult male can be as long as 8 to 10 inches. This particular leopard gecko is an albino and has no spots. She is about 7 inches long and is a healthy, 5 year old female.


Leopard geckos generally live in arid, rocky deserts. Some people assume that they live in dry sand dunes, but that is not true. Leopard geckos love to climb rocks, logs, and anything they can grip on to.


Leopard geckos are very popular pets for anyone. This particular leopard gecko is a very docile pet.
