Do Leopard Geckos Make Good Pets? | Small Pets


Hello, my name is Jill Phillips, and I’m co-owner
of Squeals on Wheels, a traveling petting zoo and pony rides. My name is John Phillips.
We have horses, miniature horses. We have miniature llamas and alpacas, chickens, ducks.
We have bearded dragons. Our website is www.squealsonwheels.us. Leopard geckos can make a great pet as long
as you know what you’re get into.They are not huggy, furry little animals like to be
petted. They are interesting animals. They only require one size of an aquarium. They
don’t grow very big. They don’t need to expand the size of their aquarium. They are very
inexpensive, and you don’t need special lighting, they are naturally nocturnal. They don’t need
UV light, which is quite expensive, and they are very easy to care for. When they do their
droppings, they do their droppings back in the corner of the little cage. Easy to clean
up — you don’t have to clean the whole area of the animal’s cage. When you feed them,
they eat live insects such as crickets and worms, so if you are hesitant of picking up
insects, you’d better think about other animals other than the gecko. Leopard geckos don’t
have any teeth, so if they do bite, which is only very seldom, they are not going to
hurt you. Also, they are very good pets for individuals who have dander allergies. They
don t have any germs. They don’t drop off any of the dust and dander that tend to cause
those allergies.

  1. Another reason to convince my mum!

  2. I am getting one on march break. My friend will be so jealous >:D

  3. Leopard geckos are very cheap
    You can get a baby Leo for less than $20.00
    That's how much I got my leopard gecko
    (Check out my channel to see her!)

  4. They cost 30 at petsmart

  5. They do have teeth just very small

  6. Bonne video le gecko est magnifique

  7. this is a very simple analysis to say the least.  Leo's require a lot more care than explained here.  They need plenty of vitamins, and a variety of food other than just crickets and meal worms.  Meal worms are definitely a staple but a good happy healthy gecko needs a variety of food and hides.  Wax worms, butter worms, silk worms, phoenix worms and roaches should be cycled through their diet as often as possible.  Wax and butter worms should be given more rarely as they are fattier. 

  8. befor the video started gieco
    the commercial was out 😀

  9. I had one a few years ago, but iit died because of mouth rot.

  10. Do geckos smell and how much do they cost?

  11. They doe have teeth

  12. They do have teeth

  13. I love reptiles, but "they don't have germs" is a lie. All reptiles harbor salmonella. Make sure you wash your hands thoroughly after handling and be careful not to touch your mucous membranes. They also have teeth and will bite. Although it's not a terrible bite, it can be infected with the salmonella.
