A leopard gecko makes an excellent pet for many reasons. These colorful creatures are small, have minimal care requirements, and can be left alone for several days if necessary.

It is small, has minimal care requirements, and can be left alone for several days. The animal is quiet, doesn’t smell, doesn’t need attention, and a large amount of space for its home isn’t required. A big drawback to these pets is the price. The gecko itself is expensive and the tank setup, if done properly, is also pricey. After doing some investigations on the Internet, I found that the cheaper rock heaters are not advised. I now have the more expensive under-the-tank heaters. The tank setup is quite heavy, so I bought a separate tank setup to remain at school. Theis way the gecko can easily travel to school with me on Mondays and home again on Fridays in a little plastic container. Another consideration concerns feeding. Leopard geckos quite readily eat mealworms and crickets, however, once in a while an adult gecko should get the extra nutrition of a pinkie (baby mouse). I do NOT feel this is appropriate for elementary school, and so this task is done strictly on weekends!
