First, the Leopard Gecko. These are the most popular geckos. They are cheap and readily available and they are neither to fragile, nor too fierce to handle. They also come in many different morphs.

Handling: About 20 minutes per day, more is too stressful for the lizard.
Size: 8-10 inches (medium size for a Gecko.)
Tank Size: 10 gallons for one or two Geckos.
Leopard Geckos should have a heat lamp and a daytime tank temperature of 82-88 degrees fahrenheit. At night, it should be much cooler, as low as 64 degrees fahrenheit.
Leopard Geckos need a diet of crickets and mealworms. This can get expensive, so many lizard keepers breed their own crickets.
