Hi, thinking about getting a leopard gecko and have set aside half term to do some research. Anyone got one? Any tips/ advice? We have two kids age 7 and 10, so think they are responsible to look after it. All info greatly received!
They are nice little things but not as robust as other reptiles and rather on the long lived side (if you dont kill them with poor husbandry - sorry just being realistic) at 25yrs. I would recommend considering a bearded dragon instead - lifespan 7-8yrs, and more robust, although still lots of research to be done. Nutrition is difficult with all the lizards and they will die if you dont get that and the temperature right.
