Meet Leo, he is a Leopard Gecko, and comes from the Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan & India regions. In the wild they live in the high desert mountains. These gecko's do have eyelids, and this one even looks likes it is smiling! They are Nocturnal, so they have big eyes and do there hunting for food at night & spend most days under a rock! These little guys are pretty hardy lizards and do make pretty good pets. They eat live insects & worms, and drink water from a shallow dish. They can grow to 6-7 inches and live 15-20 years when well cared for. I do recommend these guys for your 1st exotic pet!
