This care manual will instruct you on the best practices for caring for a Leopard Gecko as a pet.
The leopard gecko (scientifically known as Eublepharis macularius) is a crepuscular ground-dwelling lizard. Unlike the majority of other gecko species, the leopard gecko possesses moveable eyelids which gives the gecko an anthropomorphic quality. The specie’s extraordinary set of eyelids is the basis for the scientific name. Eublepharis is a combination of the Greek words Eu, meaning ‘good,’ and Blephar, meaning ‘eyelid.’ The name Macularius is derived from the Latin word Macula which translates to ‘spot’ or ‘blemish’ which is in obvious reference to the animal’s spotted markings. They are naturally found in the deserts of Asia, Pakistan and northern India.
