Leopard geckos are so often kept in small, poorly lit housing that doesn’t encourage them to express their full range of behaviours. Our habitat set has been designed by us using all our extensive product knowledge and experience to provide your leopard gecko with the best living space available – and all at a very reasonable price. Plenty of space, a good temperature gradient and access to low levels of UVB for optimum health means your gecko will be happy, healthy and live a long and comfortable life!
Glass terrariums can make excellent habitats for most of the smaller species of lizard, and the terrarium included in this habitat kit is no exception. As glass loses heat far more quickly than wood does, you can achieve the same temperature gradient in a more compact space. This terrarium gives a single gecko lots of room to move around, and there is enough floor space for several hides and branches to enrich your new pets’ life. Although they are ground living geckos, leopard geckos do enjoy exploring different levels within their habitat and this terrarium gives enough space to provide a variety of branches, hides and other decor to keep them happy.
UV light is provide by an Arcadia Pro T5 UVB Kit, to provide the correct levels of UV for the Leopard Gecko.
A deep heat projector provides a basking spot of 30 to 35°C during the day, allowing your gecko to regulate its temperature and digest its food efficiently. This bulb will also heat the air in the vivarium, providing the temperature gradient so vital for all reptile species. The digital touch screen Evo Lite thermostat (set to dimming) will keep the temperatures correct during the day and automatically turn the heat down at night to provide that natural temperature drop.
The compact top included holds both heat lamps and the UV light that your gecko needs; as a crepuscular gecko they do not need the high levels of UVB that a day active, basking lizard does, but they benefit enormously from access to low levels of UVB. The bulb provided supplies enough UV to reach the levels of UV to create a Ferguson Zone of 1, perfect for the dawn and dusk active leopard gecko.
One of the most important items of equipment in all of reptile keeping is the digital thermometer! The thermometer that we include with this habitat is reliable, robust and with two probes it’s possible to monitor both the cool and warm ends of the vivarium at the same time. We have been using these units for years now, both in store and personally – and we think that they are just right for keeping track of the temperatures in your pets’ enclosure.
