Sid & Doris

Species: Leopard Gecko (Eublepharis macularius)

Sid & Doris

Native  to  Pakistan,  India  and  Afghanistan  the  Leopard  Gecko  is  found where it is dry and rocky.  They are quite a large gecko reaching a length of 20-27cm (8-10inches) and weigh 45-65g. Unlike most geckos, they possess eyelids.  The ability to detach its tail if attacked allows it to escape a  predator  and  it  can  grow  a  new  tail  almost  immediately.  They  are  a ground-dwelling  and  nocturnal  insectivore,  feeding  on  live  crickets  and mealworms. Adult  females  will  lay  up  to  2  eggs,  up to 6 or 8 times in a breeding season.
