Arid Geckos for Sale

Uncle Bill's Pet Centers' most popular species of arid geckos are the Albino Leopard Gecko, Leopard Gecko, and the Panther Gecko.  Arid Geckos live in the drier regions of the world and come in many shapes, sizes, and colors.  They can make good pets for first-time lizard owners and can live up to 20 years if cared for properly.  A happy, healthy gecko is active, generally alert, has crystal clear eyes, a rounded, full tail and body, healthy-looking skin, a clean vent and nose, and is a regular eater.  Their average size ranges from 4” to 9” in length.  These geckos are mostly nocturnal and will even hide or burrow in the substrate in the daytime. . Please call ahead to the store location you are planning on visiting to confirm that arid geckos for sale will be available.

Arid Gecko Diet

Geckos love insects, which means one should feed them a balanced diet of crickets along with different kinds of worms.  Young geckos eat every day while adults will eat about every other day.  Clean, de-chlorinated water and vitamin/calcium supplements will ensure that your gecko remains healthy. 

Arid Gecko Habitat

The size of your arid gecko’s habitat will depend on the pet’s size as well as how many are to be kept in a single enclosure.  Be sure to get a tight-fitting cover or lid to make sure the geckos do not escape.  These guys love to hide so provide plenty of hiding places, non-toxic plants, branches, and logs or bark pieces.  Possible substrates may be forest bedding, calcium sand, or reptile carpet if your gecko was caught eating its substrate.  Humidity should be kept around 50%+ with regular misting, and the average temperature for the enclosure is to remain around 85-90°F for the warmer end and 78-80°F for the cooler end.  Fluorescent lights should be on for 10 to 12 hours daily and an incandescent bulb may be used for basking times during the day.  Arid geckos usually need UVB light if they are diurnal; a ceramic or black light heater may be used for any hours of the night or day, too.  Geckos are known to shed their skin regularly, so make sure the humidity levels are stable enough to allow this as well as maybe a container for it to immerse itself in and help itself shed its skin.  Multiple females of the same species may be kept together, but males and other various reptiles should not be housed together.

Are Arid Geckos Right for Me?

The Leopard Geckos and Panther Geckos are fairly easy to care for and can make great pets for beginners as well as experienced pet parents!  Though handling can be tolerated by the more tame geckos, it should be kept to a minimum so as not to stress out the gecko.  Also, it is potentially harmful to the gecko if it is grabbed by the tail, as they are capable of dropping their tails in defense.  Also, any gecko is capable of carrying diseases such as Salmonella, so always washing your hands after touching your pet or any of its habitat items/substances is a must.  For this reason, small children and pregnant women should not handle these pets or their associated items/substances.  The Arid Gecko is easy-going and rather simple to provide for once set up.  It can become a wonderful, and with time possibly affectionate, cold-blooded companion for many years with the proper care!
