Because all reptiles are potential carriers of infectious diseases, such as Salmonella, always wash your hands before and after handling your reptile and/or habitat contents to help prevent the potential spread of diseases.
Gargoyle Geckos get their name from the cranial bumps on their head that resemble horns or ears.
Like their Crested cousins, Gargoyle Geckos are active at night, and spend the days hidden away in their habitat. These pet lizards will tolerate gentle handling, but can become stressed if held for too long.
