These are one of the very few gecko species that have eyelids (their latin name, Eublepharis, is a combination of the Greek words Eu (good), and blephar (eyelid). Hugely popular as pets, they are available in a wide range of colours and patterns.
In the wild these animals are found in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and north-west India in the dry, rocky grasslands and desert areas found in this part of the world. They spend the hottest part of the day hiding under rocks, and emerge at dawn and dusk to bask, feed, and interact with others.
They eat invertebrates in the wild, and in captivity are quite happy on a diet of crickets, mealworms, locusts, cockroaches and calci worms; waxworms may be fed as a treat, but are extremely fatty, so should not form the greater portion of the diet. It’s impossible to completely replicate the wild diet, but the wider a range of food that’s presented to them, the healthier and happier they will be. Long lived, docile, good to handle and very handsome – what’s not to like!
