Very unusual in captivity, this species is very similar to its cousin (the common leopard gecko) but has very slightly different care requirements. More of a forest edge and savannah species, this pretty little gecko makes an unusual, if rather shy, pet.
We are working towards improving the welfare of every pet reptile, which is why our expectations are so much higher than those of some other retailers and breeders. You want a healthy, happy pet and we know that our gecko habitats are a great way to achieve that! Please read our article on minimum standards (see the link in the main description below) to see why our habitats are the most effective on the market.
Our animals are only available for collection in store. Speak to our care team, or visit us in-store to purchase your new pet.
Please read our article on minimum standards – it’s very important!
A slightly different patterning is the first noticeable difference between these geckos and the commoner leopard gecko. They do require slightly different care, being more of a grassland and forest edge species they appreciate a higher humidity, although temperature and other care requirements are still the same. As babies they are a dark velvety brown – almost black – with yellow bands, and as they grow they lighten to a warm chocolate brown with yellow and cream bands, with some speckling on the legs and tail.
They are a rather shy species, but if introduced to it carefully they can be handled. The babies are nervous and quick, but not aggressive. A lovely species for the keeper who wants something a little different.
