Leopard Geckos can be excellent pets. They are sometimes considered lower maintenance compared to some of the other reptile pets. With the right accessories, you can create an ideal leopard gecko habitat where they can thrive.

FAQs About Leopard Gecko Supplies

Leopard geckos are desert animals, so leopard gecko substrates made of coconut fiber or sand mats are a good choice. You can also get them bedding. They may like bedding made from ground walnut shells or sand, especially if your gecko is going to lay eggs. The leopard gecko tank should be at least 20-gallons, but the bigger the tank, the more habitat you can create.

Your leopard gecko will need a shallow bowl for a water source. Since a leopard gecko’s food source is live prey like crickets and mealworms, you don’t necessarily need an additional dish for that.

Leopard gecko hides are great because they give your little leo some privacy and space where they feel cozy and secure. They come in cool designs that can look like desert rocks or logs. You can also get faux rocks and sticks for them to lounge on. You can beautify the leopard gecko habitat with live plants like aloe or a snake plant. Petco has an array of leopard gecko décor.

Leopard geckos need heat and light during the day and just a heat source at night, so a great solution is a leopard gecko heating lamp for daytime and a heating mat for nighttime. You could also use the heating mat all the time and get a bulb that doesn’t radiate heat—they need light on average about 10-12 hours a day. It’s also best to set up the tank so that one side is cooler—between 78-88 degrees Fahrenheit—and one side is warmer—around 95 degrees—for basking.

Besides hideaways, most Leopard geckos enjoy items like lounge hammocks and big warm rocks to curl upon. If you can start while they’re young, you could be your lizard’s favorite person to play with. Most geckos love exploring, so crawling up your shoulders and burrowing into your warm nape or hair could be quite an adventure for these scaly little pets. You could even get a large box or container and set up obstacle courses for your lizard to figure out. Just make sure they don’t get too chilled. If their underside is cold to the touch, it’s time to put them back into their toasty habitat.
