Leopard geckos (Eublepharis macularius) are small to medium-sized reptiles native to the arid regions of Afghanistan, Pakistan, and northwestern India. They are one of the most popular gecko species kept as pets due to their docile nature, ease of care, and fascinating appearance
Leopard geckos have a distinctive appearance with a stocky body, stout legs, and a long tail that they use for balance. Their skin is covered in small, raised bumps and they have rows of dark spots or blotches, resembling a leopard's pattern. However, some individuals may have striped or solid colour variations. They exhibit a wide range of colour morphs, including variations in shades of yellow, orange, brown, and even black and white.
Leopard geckos are known for their generally docile and calm nature, which makes them suitable pets for reptile enthusiasts of all ages and experience levels. They can become accustomed to handling and may tolerate gentle interaction, but it's essential to handle them with care and avoid excessive stress.
