Leopard Gecko is easy to raise and care in captivity, but a minimum of care if necessary. Do not worry, they are so basic care that even a child can take responsibility for their care.

The terrarium is essential for the care of our little lizard, taking into account that it is a reptile of the desert and tropical and warm parts need to accommodate their environment to represent their natural habitat.

How to make a terrarium for Leopard Gecko

If we consider how to make a terrarium for a Leopard Gecko we have to be clear about a couple of things, for example, how many Geckos we have or how many we intend to buy and if we need the terrarium to breed and reproduce this specific species of reptiles.

The first thing will be to decide the material of our terrarium, if we need to buy terrariums of glass, wood or plastic. (I always recommend the glass for its durability and ease for cleaning) They are a bit more expensive, but in the long term you will find it cheaper.

Then we will evaluate the terrarium size we need for our gecko.

Temperature control is undoubtedly the most important.

Lighting, although it is not a demanding animal with the theme of light, it is interesting to take it into account.

What type of terrarium do I need for my lizard?

The best terrariums are glass, a plastic terrarium is somewhat cheaper than glass, but deteriorate and cleaning is more uncomfortable.

Anyway, say if one is better than another is in the hands of each, the important thing is that our little reptile has room to move.

The Leopard Geckos are good climbers, but, in a glass terrarium they will not be able to climb the walls, it is better that they have a terrarium longer than high ..

Terrarium measurements for Leopard Gecko

The measurements of terrariums for Leopard Gecko will be based on how many lizards you want to have, for example: for a single Gecko with a Terrarium of 40 centimeters or 45 centimeters long you will have enough.

The Gecko needs more space along the top, so it is not necessary to be too high, on the contrary, if you have enough space and you like to decorate your terrarium with ornaments and plants a bigger one will be much nicer. The price is a factor to be taken into account, since manufacturers who spend more material increase the price.

Of the small Terraria, one of my favorites is the Exo Terra Terrario Small Low of 60 L, 45 x 45 x 30 cm. It does not have an excessive price and the Exo Terra Brand gives us a guarantee of quality since it is the most demanded brands of reptile products in the market.

In no case you can use a terrarium of grilles or bars more known as a cage, as these will not withstand the heat inside and Geckos need a specific temperature. (You have all the information and products for temperature control HERE)

If you are only going to have a Leopard Gecko with a terrarium of 40 to 60 liters (small) you will have enough, for a couple of Geckos one of 60 liters (medium) and for three or four you will need a terrarium of 120 liters (large).

Beware of males since they are territorial. If you want to have several reptiles of the leopard gecko species it is better to have 1 male and 2 or 3 females.
