Try a rescue/shelter or REPUTABLE breeder instead. i wish i could adopt just one to help it and get it out of there.
BUT I would not recommend getting any reptiles from a large chain petstore like Petco or Petsmart. These lizards are a desert lizard, so they do not need a highly humid environment. Unlike other geckos, leopard geckos have moveable eyelids. If the humidity is too low (below 20%), the gecko might have trouble shedding. Leopard geckos at Petco are around 20 dollars. There are more than 1,500 different subspecies that belong to this category of Lizard. 8 comments. 100% Upvoted.

Leopard geckos are one of the most popular lizards herp owners own today. no one is buying them so they’re stuck in this small enclosure with one hide. Has anybody bought their lizard from Petco? we all know they aren’t supposed to be housed together so this makes me very concerned. Bearded dragons are cool but I don’t want something too big. save hide report.
