Leopard Gecko Gal here. When I was 12, an ordinary house gecko fell on my shoulder and after I had gotten over the initial shock I realised how fascinating these creatures were. Years later, my brother-in-law's brother bought a couple of leopard geckos, plus some bearded dragons and I had time to truly bond with these amazing creatures. Leopard geckos have become my favorite of all lizard pets, mainly because of the many varied colors (known as morphs). Leopard geckos are growing in popularity...I think they make great first lizard pets for kids due to their gentle nature. I hope you enjoy reading my hubpages dedicated to information about leopard geckos, their care and, how to deal with common problems like impaction. Feel free to add comments....Enjoy!!
