Leopard geckos (Eublepharis macularius) are nocturnal lizards belonging to the Eublepharinae subfamily of the family Gekkonidae. They are robust geckos with relatively large heads and have numerous tiny wart-like tubercles on their skin. Their natural habitat includes the desert and dry Savannah areas of Southern Central Asia.

Leopard geckos make interesting pets and come in a variety of patterns, sizes and colouration. Across the world, thousands of these geckos are kept and bred. Leopard geckos are extremely hardy, even in enclosed environments, and have good reproductive potential.
