I'm not asked about this often enough
I have a Leopard Gecko named Montana. She is my baby. I love her soooo much. What exactly do you want to know about them? Montana behaves VERY well and cooperates with anything. What they need is sand for substrate, crickets & mealworms for food, a LARGE bowl for fresh water, water that is replaced everyday, a few things to climb on, and some things to sleep on or under. One leopard gecko can be housed in a 10 gallon. They need a light for night and a light for day. It needs to be 80-85 degrees in the daytime and a little below 80 in the night. Montana loves it when I mist her cage (she licks it up!) and when I mist her. Never grab a leopards tail because it will fall off and puts them through an extreme deal of stress and they can die from it. I will post a picture of her in a minute... if you have any other questions please just ask here of PM me

Montana is cute...but I just wanted to clear a few things up...

Leo's should not be housed on sand,as they can swallow it and become impacted.

Also they actually do not NEED a light.Sure you can have one,but if they get too much light,it will stress them out.And they do not need any UVB or anything.

Temperatures should be 85-90 degrees.If they are too low,you will stress the gecko out.You should use a UTH (Under Tank Heater) and not a heat rock.There should be a heated area and a cool area in the enclosure.

I am using all the things I listed above and she is doing excellent, being her sweet self. As long as sand is not colored, it does fine. And as long as it is a special kind of sand, they will not become impacted.
