What does a leopard gecko look like?



The leopard gecko is covered in very small bumps that are apparent all over the upperside of it's body, with the exception of the underside which is smooth.

Their chunky tails are used to as a safety device when danger strikes. They will wiggle their tail in front of the predator, which will ususally try and eat the tail, and not the gecko.


The tail will drop off, and within time, grow back. The growth is ususally smoother, and slightly fatter than the original tail.

Leopard geckos come in many different colours, including carrot, het, leucistic and albino.
