Also known as the common smooth scaled gecko, this is a delightful little species of gecko with some very interesting habits!

They are parthenogenic, which means that they lay fertile eggs without needing a male to be involved.

As they are very small (and very fast!) they’re not really suitable for handling, although some people have managed to get them hand tame.

How should I keep my Mourning Gecko?

Where these little geckos really stand out is as inhabitants of a heavily planted bio-active vivarium; they dart in and out of the plants, display and call to each other, and are generally very entertaining to watch.

Heavily planted enclosures are ideal because they need high levels of humidity and the plants provide shelter as well as a climbing structure. Rocks, bark, branches and other decorations can also be used in their enclosure.

Mourning Geckos diet

They are easy to keep, they can live quite happily on the crested gecko food mix although they do appreciate some livefood.
