Leopard gecko has movable eyelids – it is the only leopard geckos which sleeps with its eyes closed. On the fingers they have claws instead of clingy legs, and therefore they cannot climb smooth surfaces, but they may dig and climb the rocks well. The body of the leopard gecko is covered with tiny scales from which there protrude slightly larger, convex ones. The most common coat colour is brown and brown with small spots on yellow-grey or cream background.
Leopard gecko usually reaches 22-28 centimetres length. The maximum body size is achieved after about 2-3 years. The adult geckos weigh about 60-100 grams.
Eublepharismacularius are carnivores. They eat mainly insects and small vertebrates. The bases of their diet are crickets or mealworm (Tenebriomolitor). Leopard Geckos are perfectly adapted to not eat any food for a long time. They gather stores of fat and water in the tail. The well-nourished individual can survive without food for several months and it will not cause any damage of their health.
Those lizards are herd animals which mark their territory strongly. They live in herds of several dozen of individuals. The males defend their territory (and sometimes they are very violent) against other males. Leopard Geckos are active at night and have a mild disposition. They spend day in hiding places, mainly in rock crevices. They feed at night. Leopard Gecko during hunting becomes motionless, it moves only the tip of the tail, waits for his victim’s move– then it attacks instantly.
Leopard Gecko reaches sexual maturity around 9-10 months old and its body length is about 17-20 cm, weighs about 40-45 grams. Females may be released to the male only when they reach above 40 g. Sexual dimorphism is not very pronounced. The male is not much different in size than the female. They are only slightly larger, have a slightly wider head. An individual which measures 10-12 cm his sex can be determined on the basis of the appearance of the genital area. In males, base of the tail is wider and cylindrical, at the underside of the latrine are hemipenis, on the stomach before the cloaca there are a few (14-18) pre-anal pores arranged in a characteristic way of the V-shape. At female, after deviation of the tail you can see the mouth of the fallopian tubes.
Female fertility depends on their age, their peak is in the fourth year of life and the last eggs are laid at the age of 11. After fertilization, the eggs are developed in the female body from 4 to 6 weeks. After this time the female lays usually 2 pieces. The eggs are white and have an oval shape. The young Leopard Gecko after hatch measures about 7-8 centimetres.
A sign of upcoming egg lay time is reduction of the Leopard Gecko’s thickness of the tail. It is possible to lay unfertilized eggs (when there is no contact with a male). You should observe the Leopard Gecko carefully, because it can be significantly weakened.
Terrarium for one individual should be a minimum of 60 x 40 x 40 cm. It is obvious, the more Leopard Geckos in a terrarium, the bottom surface should be larger. The height of 40 cm is sufficient. In the terrarium should be hiding where Leopard gecko can hide. The container for Leopard Gecko can be made of glass, OSB board and of furniture board. Do not forget about adequate ventilation. Each terrarium should have a structural background allowing Leopard Gecko climbing and resting on the rock shelves. Due to the fact that Leopard Geckos are nocturnal, you do not have to provide them UVB light bulbs. What is more, their use may cause burns in some albino Leopard Geckos. The terrarium can be heated by a light bulb.
Where can you find Leopard Geckos?
They live in desert and semi-arid mountainous areas of Asia Minor and Central (from Turkey through Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkmenistan, to the north-western provinces of India). You can find them at altitudes up to 2100 m above sea level.
Appearance and nutrition
It grows up to 30 centimetres. It has round head, lightly marked spikes and beard. The colour of the bearded dragon is from light gray to yellow-brown. It eats mainly crickets, locusts and cockroaches. Additionally, it eats superworms and plant foods such as dried herbs, leaves and flowers. You may also give it vegetables. Generally, they are omnivores. Young bearded dragons should be fed 1 to 2 times a day and adults every 2-3 days. During giving them live food you should pay attention to its size, it should not be bigger than the size of the bearded dragon’s head. The attention should be for the given for the space of time of feeding adults, they gain weight easily. It can cause a number of negative consequences from the problems with moving to the decreased fertility. The water should be changed every day and you should be careful to not leave any remnants of food in it.
Terrarium to bearded dragon should be spacious and similar to its natural environment- the desert and semi dessert. The terrarium can be made of glass or wood and glass - because of low humidity is not too high risk for decay of wood. In dry terrarium is used mostly the sand duff and there are no major contraindications to bearded Dragon uses it. Bearded Dragon does not have the inclination, such as Leopard geckos to eat duff. Even very young bearded dragons are kept on the sand by some breeders. As an alternative we can recommend:
- Beech cubes (cubes made of deciduous trees)
- Unscented litterfall of corn cobs
- Clay-sand surface
All of these substrates you can get at a pet store. Peat or soil are not suitable for dry terrarium, because when they are dry, they start to pollen. Please note that any loose litterfall eaten intentionally or accidentally may pose a threat. Safer sleepers for reptiles are: newspapers, paper towels, carpet. If you want to use plant to decorate, the best is to choose artificial imitations or tufts of dry grass. Live plants can be treated as a snack by the bearded dragons, or they can be trampled. If you want to try, you should use plants which love dry climate. They should be durable and non-toxic plants.
Distinction between the sexes is more reliable in case of older individuals or soon after hatching. In the case of developed, males bearded dragons are characterized by more massive body structure, larger and broader head with angular edges, bigger spikes and they have more intense colour.
Females tend to be quieter in comparison to the more vigorous and aggressive males. For example, during the mating season the males nodding its head vigorously in this way it shows willingness to fertilize the female. When the male is surrounded by female, the colour of its beard turns darker, sometimes it even reaches black. Another behaviour indicating that we are dealing with a violent male is when the male bits the neck of his partner and grabs her by the back of the head, which precedes copulation. It often leads to a non-threatening injury of the female. However, the domain of females is kicking in a terrarium. It is a normal behave when it is looking for a suitable place for burying her eggs. However, it can be confused because when bearded dragon is too hot, it looks for shelter.
