Gecko lifespan, size and other general information A leopard gecko can grow to around 15 to 25 centimetres and live for 10 to 20 years in captivity, so owning one is a big commitment. They prefer to live alone, but can become used to being handled if done so carefully. A healthy gecko has clear, bright eyes and a thick tail and its belly should only touch the floor when resting. Temperature, heat lamps, uv lights and humidity Leopard geckos use their environment to regulate their body temperature.

Use thermostats to regulate the temperatures. Leopard geckos also need ultraviolet light and a dry environment. The basking area should remain between 28 and 30 degrees C during the day, and the cool end 24 to 26 degrees C. Leopard geckos need a relatively dry environment. Measure the humidity at the cool end of the tank with a hygrometer - it should be between 30 and 40 per cent. Your gecko will need low levels of ultraviolet light.

A 2 to 5 per cent UVB bulb will provide this and allow them to make vitamin D inside their body - an essential mineral which allows your gecko to store and use calcium. The substrate, or floor covering, needs to be natural so as to minimise the risk of impaction - a potentially fatal issue where particles become lodged inside of the belly and cause a blockage.
